Second Semester has Begun
UIS has geared up for a new start! Urban is on quad semester system and this Monday was the beginning of our second semester. New students came for Orientations to get their uniforms and the schedule for the term. Students seemed little nervous about the change and meeting their new teachers, but they were warmly welcomed, and soon made new friends. This semester, grade 12 students will begin to plan out their fu-tures . We wish the student success for this semester.
