Leaside High School (LHS) is a school of between 900 and 1000 pupils in central-east Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at the corner of Eglinton and Bayview Avenues. The school was established in 1945 by the Leaside Board of Education and is located in the Leaside neighbourhood.

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


In March 2015, a seventeen-year-old boy was stabbed and robbed outside of Leaside High School.[2] According to police, the incident stemmed from a fight prior. The victim was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A male suspect was arrested following the incident.[3]
