Global private school operator International Schools Partnership (ISP) has acquired Lynn-Rose School and Rowntree Montessori Schools, both situated in the Greater Toronto Area.
ISP now operates 46 schools globally located in Spain, Malaysia, Mexico, Costa Rica, the UK, Chile, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, the US and now Canada.
Lynn-Rose School in Mississauga City teaches more than 350 children from pre-K to Grade 12 and is one of the few International Baccalaureat continuum schools in the area.
Marie Attard, founder of Lynn-Rose School, said: “ISP schools are known for their educational best practices globally. In an effort to continue the legacy of learning for the next generation, now is the right time to bring in new investors/owners for our schools. I believe it is my responsibility to secure Lynn-Rose and its future. ISP is particular when choosing schools that are aligned with their philosophy to ensure that their high standards of education are being met. Lynn-Rose has become one of this elite group of schools.”
International Schools Partnership chief executive Steve Brown added: “As usual, our first priority will be to start the process of building strong and trusting relationships between ISP and the Lynn-Rose community. We will also shortly make a start on sharing with the school the benefits of being part of ISP including, of course, our approach to delivering effective learning for our students”.
ISP’s second acquisition was the Rowntree Montessori Schools group in Brampton, a private day school with four campuses which educates in small classes more than 450 children, pre-K to Grade 8, from predominantly local families.
Brown said: “The school joins us at a fantastic time as we welcome two new schools in Canada to the group.”
