The curriculum consisted mainly of secular subjects--Jewish history and Yiddish language.
History
Due to financial problems, in 1916 the school was taken over by the Workman’s Circle (Arbeiter Ring) and renamed the I.L. Peretz School after the well-known Yiddish author and playwright Isaac Leib Peretz. After seeing great popularity and strong attendance, the school expanded to other branches around the city. After around 50 years as an educational institution, the I.L Peretz School saw a decline and eventually closed its doors. Isaac Matenko (1874-1960) was one of the founding teachers and later, the principal of the Toronto Yiddish National Radical School. He was later affiliated with the Junction branch of the Peretz School, where he was a teacher and principal. He worked tirelessly to preserve and promote secular Jewish culture and the Yiddish language in Toronto.
