Leaside High School is a school of between 900 and 1000 pupils in central-east Toronto at the corner of Eglinton and Bayview Avenues. Established in 1945, the school is part of the Leaside community of East York.

The school has science, computer science and classics programs. Leaside currently features a highly touted French Immersion program. Leaside also has students from across the GTA, more than any other school in the city (Citation needed)

Feeder schools for Leaside High School include Bessborough Public School, Bennington Heights Public School, Northlea Public School and Rolph Road Public School.[1] The school houses the French Immersion program, from Cosburn Middle School and Northlea E.M.S.

In late 2006, Leaside High was rated "Best Toronto School for Languages" by Toronto Life Magazine.

In 1999 the school was used in the music video for Canadian pop group Len and their song Feelin' Alright.[2]

Alumni[edit]

Leaside High School has its own alumni website featuring hundreds of Clan Call (yearbook) photos, videos and a quarterly newsletter.

One section of notable alumna Margaret Atwood's novel The Handmaid's Tale is based on the school.[citation needed]
