Welcome to Tawingo College
At Tawingo College, we develop great minds, big hearts, and strong character. Our students consistently look outwards – to others and the world around them. That’s why they achieve both academic success and personal growth during their time at Tawingo College that continues through High School and College/University. Small class sizes allow students to experience enhanced curriculum, greater opportunity to learn important life skills, and the chance to discover their true potential. Explore our website to learn more about Tawingo College or contact our principal Tia Pearse at (705) 789-5890.
Children are happiest, healthiest, and most open to learning when they are outside interacting with nature. Tawingo College K-Pals (ages 3 – 5) spend most of every day outside exploring our incredible 270-acre site. Our small class sizes and inspiring teachers encourage them to be awe-filled, curious, grounded, responsible, secure, creative and connected. We believe Outdoor Kindergarten at Tawingo College is the way to encourage, and celebrate the values, skills, and traits we will so desperately need in the next generation. Find out more.

What Our Parents Say:
As a high school student, my son is doing very well in his academic classes and I credit his Grade 8 year at Tawingo College – the positive influence and the opportunities he was given.
So true! What are your thoughts?

Our Grade 5/6 students built rockets and invited the school community to their launch. Mission control managed to launch all but two! And the rocket rescuers recovered all but the rockets that are waiting for a strong wind to get them out of the trees. Thank you to the parents for coming out to support this annual event. Our students are Engineers in the making! ... See MoreSee Less

School may be out for the summer, but we still have so much to celebrate! The last few days of school were so busy! We miss the students already! ... See MoreSee Less
I would be in mourning about now if I were a student at Tawingo! I would hate for school to end...well, I'd just have to back to camp for the summer!!!
Colour Day was an adventure! Beach BBQ turned into an indoor picnic, our school-wide game (Cycles) eventually got rained out, but Tawingo Stock Exchange was a great alternative! Thanks to our students and teachers for being ready for anything and being flexible! Overwhelming advice from our young investors...Buy low and sell high!! ... See MoreSee Less
For 10 years now the students of Tawingo College have assisted the District of Muskoka with Benthic Monitoring of Lake Vernon. Thanks to Jay, from the District, for helping lead us through the counting of invertebrates. Our Grade 5/6 students helped our K-pals with this delicate process! ... See MoreSee Less

The Grade 5/6s are studying Canadian Government and Politics and held their own elections. They elected a Principal for the Day! The winning candidate promised the students longer recesses, (check), a picnic lunch (check), a giant game of Sticks (check), followed by a Watergun fight (check, check, check)! What a fun day, led so confidently and capably by Principal Maduri! One of the best days of the year, for sure! ... See MoreSee Less
I love this school 😊
Such great photos! They look like they had a blast!
Way to go, Andy!
Our Grade 1/2 students created their own board games. Then their games were critiqued by older school mates. They bravely took the feedback they got and used it to make improvements. Such a meaningful and educational process. The Grade 5/6 students thoroughly enjoyed the final products! ... See MoreSee Less
What a great idea!

So grateful our teachers write this stuff down! ... See MoreSee Less
Our K-Pals have become passionate about BEES! So much so that they wanted to plant a pollinator garden (but we like to call it our K-Pallinator Garden)!
Thank you to expert gardner and naturalist, Peggy Petersen, for teaching us how to help the bees, and how to give back to the land.
For anyone driving down Ravenscliffe Road, you will be able to watch our K-Pallinator Garden grow over the next few weeks!
Thank you, Peggy! And thank you, K-Pals, for your love of nature! ... See MoreSee Less
Love it!!! It’ll be fun to watch it grow out there at the road!
This is un-bee-lievable 🐝🌸❤️❤️❤️
