Toward and Towards are the same thing


How come sometimes you see toward (no s) and sometimes you see towards (with s)?  I am reading a magazine and it had this sentence: “The human tendency toward pride may motivate us to seek prominence.” I always thought that the word was towards (with S).  In the dictionary, it had both ones, like this: toward, towards (preposition) …. Then underneath the definitions.  So does that mean you can spell it either way?
