The Mabin School

With the retirement of its long-serving Principal in June 2024, the Mabin School is seeking a new,
passionate leader to join a team of dedicated educators and changemakers. Located in the heart of
central Toronto, Mabin is a vibrant, progressive, independent JK to Grade 6 school with a deeply
committed community and an irreplaceable sense of joy.

As Canada's first Ashoka Changemaker School, Mabin is committed to social justice and is recognized for instilling a culture of teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and, most importantly, empathy in its community.

The new Principal will join an institution that is well-governed, financially secure, staffed by highly motivated and committed teachers and staff, and supported by a community of parents who value education and support Mabin in every way.
