Whether you’re a fellow student or just interested in how teenagers manage their busy schedules, join us on this exciting journey!

Waking Up

Waking up at 6:30am is never fun, but it’s especially not when you have to be at school for 7:20am. I’m usually one of the first people in my house to wake up, so I have to be careful not to make too much noise and wake up everyone else. I take a quick shower, get dressed and head downstairs to eat breakfast. I try to eat something relatively healthy so I don’t feel sluggish during the day, but sometimes I just can’t help myself and I end up eating a bowl of cereal or a Pop-Tart.

I brush my teeth, grab my backpack and head out the door. My mom drives me to school most days, but sometimes I take the bus. The bus ride is always an adventure, you never know who you’re going to sit next to or what kind of shenanigans are going to go down.

I finally arrive at school and head to my locker. I say hi to my friends as we walk to first period together. The day flies by with classes, lunch and eventually dismissal. Some days are better than others, but overall I really enjoy going to TCHS Pickering!

Getting Ready for School

As a TCHS Pickering student, the beginning of your day starts with waking up and getting ready for school. You have a few different options for how to get to school, but most students either take the GO Train or drive themselves. If you live close enough, you can also walk or ride your bike.

Once you arrive at school, you head to your locker to store away any extra items and grab whatever you need for your classes that day. Then it’s time for homeroom, where announcements are made and you get a chance to catch up with friends before heading to first period.

The rest of the day is spent in classes, with a lunch break in the middle. At the end of the day, you pack up your things and head home. If you’re taking the GO Train, you might stay after school for extracurricular activities or to finish up some homework before heading to the station.

Getting ready for school each day is just part of being a TCHS Pickering student!

Going to School

Going to school at TCHS Pickering is an amazing experience. The campus is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, so there’s always something to do after class. Plus, the school has a great academic program. I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far!


Assuming a typical day, most classes at TCHS Pickering start at 8:30am and finish at 3:30pm. There are a few exceptions to this schedule, but for the majority of students, this is a standard school day.

During the school day, students will have six 50-minute class periods with a 10-minute break in between each class. The first three periods are usually core academic classes like English, Math, and Science. The last three periods are typically electives or applied courses like Business, Technology, or the Arts.

Lunch is usually from 12:00pm-12:50pm and is a great time to socialize with friends or get some extra work done. Some students may also choose to participate in extracurricular activities like sports or clubs during this time.

Overall, TCHS Pickering offers a variety of challenging and interesting courses that prepare students for success in university and beyond!


Assuming a typical school day, lunchtime for a TCHS Pickering student would fall around noon. The cafeteria would be open and serving food, and students would have the option to buy lunch or bring their own from home. If they choose to buy lunch, they would need to use their student ID to pay. There are usually long lines at the beginning of lunch, so it is advisable to get in line early.

Once they have their food, students can either eat in the cafeteria or go outside to eat with friends. The weather permitting, many students opt to eat outside since it is more enjoyable than the cafeteria. Eating lunch with friends is a great way to socialize and take a break from academics.

Lunchtime at TCHS Pickering is usually pretty relaxed and gives students a chance to recharge before heading back into classes for the afternoon.

After School Activities

There are plenty of things to do after school at TCHS Pickering. For students who are looking for a challenge, there are competitive sports teams to join. For those who prefer a more laid-back atmosphere, there are clubs and intramurals. And for those who just want to have some fun, there are social events throughout the year.

No matter what your interests are, you’ll find something to do after school at TCHS Pickering. So come on out and get involved!

Going Home

After a long day of learning, it’s time to go home! For many TCHS Pickering students, that means taking the GO train back to their homes in Toronto.

For others, it’s a short walk or bike ride. But no matter how you get there, going home is always a relief. You can finally relax and forget about school for a while.

But before you can totally unwind, there’s always homework to do. That can be frustrating, especially when you just want to relax. But it’s important to get it done so you can enjoy your free time even more.

Once homework is out of the way, you can finally relax and do what you want. Maybe that means hanging out with friends, watching TV, or playing video games. Or maybe it means spending time with family. Either way, it’s great to be home after a long day at school.

Dinner and Homework

School gets out at 3:00 pm and I head to my part-time job at the local library. I work until 6:00 pm, and then I go home and make dinner. After dinner, I do my homework. I usually have about two hours of homework every night. I try to finish up around 10:00 pm so that I can get a good night’s sleep.

Relaxing and Sleeping

As a student at TCHS Pickering, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to relax and catch some Z’s. In between classes, you can take a break in one of our many lounges or study rooms. And when it’s time for bed, you’ll have a comfortable private room to yourself.

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for your health and academic success, so we make sure our students have everything they need for a restful slumber. Each room is equipped with blackout curtains and a noise-cancelling system to help you get the best sleep possible.


A day in the life of a TCHS Pickering student is unique, full of learning and experiences. From participating in classes to enjoying free time with friends and taking part in extracurricular activities, our students always have something to look forward to. We are proud that our students are able to attend such an amazing school every day and we strive to make it even more special for them each year. No two days at TCHS Pickering will ever be the same, but they sure will be memorable!
