What Students Say

How real students said about UIS.

Tran, Thi Minh Phuong

York University (Commerce)

“Every day is a second chance.”

The story happened by chance. I met Mr. Tony at a seminar in Vietnam. Hearing him describing the school with a very passionate and professional attitude has made me thinking and choosing this school as the place where I will finish my high school studies and get my high school diploma. To be honest, he is one of the best principals that I’ve ever seen in my life.

There are three benefits I have experienced in UIS. First, I’ve made a lot of friends that came from different countries like China, Korea, etc. Secondly, Grade 12 students had the opportunity to meet the recruiters from Universities in Canada and ask them questions related to the program that we wanted to enroll in. Thirdly, I’ve also studied with many experienced teachers and assisted with skilled counsellors and guidance from different countries.

I chose to enroll at York University because it was one of the Top Universities in Canada. At York U, there are so many programs to choose from, but the program that I’ve chosen was the Commerce program. I wanted to gain practical experience in York business programs and develop technical knowledge and skills that can help me to be ready for my career after I graduate.

I would say that Urban International School is a place that you should enroll in if you wish to advance your English and your knowledge. At UIS, there are many counsellors and guidance that are always available to help you with your problem. Moreover, our beloved principal, Mr. Tony, will always be there to listen and guide you when you’re having an issue with your study.

I would advise to future UIS students, stay strong and study hard. Do not let anything hinder your dream. Don’t give up cause you don’t know what will happen tomorrow.

University of Ottawa (Communication)

“It’s never too late.”

The reason why I chose UIS is that I thought I can graduate high school in a short time.

UIS provides a lot of academic information. Also, the teachers try to give us chances for getting higher grade and Korean counselors care every student to be safe in Canada.

At University of Ottawa, I’ve chosen Communication program.

The program provides not only good quality of communication courses, but also co-op program for work experience. The experience will be helpful to build my career after I finish University.

If my best friend thinks about going university in abroad, I will say that you can get the opportunity from UIS as you study the subjects you need in English.

Try to use English as much as you can, that’s how you improve your English skills!

UCL (Mpharm)

“Always aim as high as you possibly can.”

It seemed like more student-centred compared to other choices, and since I was not familiar with Canadian Education System, I thought UIS would be the best for me to choose.

Friendly teachers, well-informed guidance counselors, and multicultural experiences

I have experienced these three benefits in UIS.

I am grateful that I was able to get taught by these great teachers. Without their help, it would have taken me ages to complete all the courses successfully. Not only with the course itself, but they also helped me a lot with my university application, and therefore, things went well.

Since I was new to Canadian education, I had a lot of questions about grading system and university application process. These well-informed guidance counselors in UIS always kindly answered to all my questions and they helped me a lot with OUAC as if it’s their own application.

As its name says, ‘international’ school, it was such a multicultural school. By experiencing different culture through friends from all around the world, I was able to understand other cultural aspects, which is important in our current society.

I have chosen UCL MPharm as my firm choice since I liked the atmosphere of the school.

I would recommend UIS with no doubt.

If I advise to future UIS students, I will say that you might find it difficult at first but keep on going. You will be able to succeed at the end.

Hi everyone! I’m Steven from the class of 2020. I’m glad that I choose to transfer from public school to UIS and spend my last year in this amazing high school. Teachers and counselors are very friendly and always patient to any issues that students have. If you have any problems about your timetable or anyacademic problems, you are all willing to ask for help in anytime. The study environment is really well, just like a small community, you can join in the student’s council and work together to organize some festival activities. Anyway, came to UIS brings me a lot of good memories and made my high school life very enjoyable.

York University

2019 GraduateWhen I at UIS, the teachers helped me which school to apply to when I was concerned with it. Theywere always open to counsel from academic questions to any other concerns. They gave me somepositive comments on what I do to encourage me with my studies and activities. Moreover, thisschool has many activities aside from just studying which helps in refreshing the mind and be morefriendly with the people around you. The teachers are very friendly so during the class they makesome jokes to awake the students and helps with people who can’t understand the topic well. I gotthe most helpwhen I was deciding on my university. I always had problems in deciding where to go,but with the help of thecounselors and teachers I could not hurry in deciding the university andconfidently choose on where I wanted to go. All the teachers in this school works hard to teach thestudents and make them ready and be prepared for the lifestyle in university. So when I got here itactually helped me since I learned how to plan for my studies and be ready for the class the next day.The school is tough but as soon as you can finish the tasks given from this school then university lifewill eventually get easier than just going to university by yourself. Lastly, the teachers helped in mostof the procedures in applying for university so if it wasn’t for them it will be hard for me to go to theuniversity where I go right now.

Seneca College

2019 Graduate (Biology)

Hello. I am Jaewoo Seong and I graduated Urban International High School this April. For me, UrbanInternational High School is always a place to help me achieve my goals. When I was one of the Highschool students, the only thing I most desire was entering college. At that time, with the help of manyteachers and friends in school, I got offers from all the universities and colleges I applied to. I had beenthankful for all the help and advices from teachers in UIS, but UIS gave me more than I realized. Afterthe new semester started, the most surprising thing was that the materials I received in college classeswere very similar to those I received in UIS classes. More than half of what I have learned is similar andit was a great advantage to start the lessons in college. For example, Mr. Warberg’s writing techniquesmaterials, Ms. Schellenberg’s Citation style and information about world history, and Note from Ms.Ebrahimi, Ms. Jang. and Ms. Ham. All the academic knowledge that I learned in UIS become the basisof my college study. Furthermore, my High school experience helped me with my group assignmentand with makingfriends. When I first came to Canada, it was hard for me to make friends and Ihesitated every time I had to speak English. However, the valuable experience gained from studentcouncil activities in UIS has made me feel more confident in group activities and little more confidencein English. My time at Urban International High School has prepared me to start perfect college life.

UIS got a punch of a very nice teachers and staff. They are always there to help you. All the teachers helped me to improve my English and my accent. They never said ‘no’ when I asked for help. They are so creative too. They try to make their classes as much fun as they could. They involve many activities in their classes, to make it more exciting or students. UIS prepared me well for university. They helped me to apply for universities, and gave many tips and advices that helped me a lot to get my offers. They helped in writing my essays, doing interviews and making my portfolio. All thanks to UIS, I got many offers, and I got some scholarships from a very strong and well-known universities like, Western university, Carleton university and York university.

The first course I took at UIS was English with Mr. Wong. Throughout his course I had a great time learning the intricacies of writing essays, which really helped me improve my writing skills.
Through summer school and throughout the school year I had the pleasure of being taught by some amazing teachers, such as, Mr. Han, Ms. Jung, and, for a short period, Ms. Choi.
Throughout my courses, (Chemistry, Physics, Advanced Functions, and Calculus) my teachers were there to help me reach my goals. Everyone was very helpful in and outside of class. They
provided me with the help and personal support I needed to get through the year and made each course enjoyable. I made the right choice in coming to UIS.

UIS provides a fun educational environment for me. My goal is to become a graphic designer in the future. Other than Mathematics and Science courses, UIS offers a variety of course options to choosefrom. In Music class, I was able to choose an instrument that I wanted to learn, like guitar, drums or piano. Also, there are many chances for me to work with other classmates. We learn and practice together. We perform and show what we learn as our assignments. Last but not least, it is very important to have fun in class, which is why I would recommend UIS. I was accepted by the GeorgeBrown College for graphic design program. I would recommend Urban International School to anyone who wants to become a designer!

I have been studying in Canada for almost 3 years. I was in a public high school and I transferred to UIS for a couple of reasons. At UIS, the class ratio is around 1 teacher to 15 students. All of my teachers know my goal. They patently teach me how to improve my grades and guide me to success. They provide suggestions for improving academic performance. They always make sure I am on the righttrack. Sometimes, my teachers also give us life lessons like my parents. UIS is like a family. It is a school with love and care. I was accepted by the University of British Columbia. Thank you Urban International School. I would recommend Urban International School to you!

At UIS, there are more interactive classroom activities such as music performances. The teachers at UIS are always willing to help me adapt to the different expectations and behaviors of Canadian culture. Through different interactive classroom activities, I am able to practice my speaking and listening skills. Moreover, my teachers at UIS give me a lot of advice on how to improve my English skills. The teachers and staff at UIS are very friendly and professional. They provide hands-on assistance with OUAC and application essays. I was accepted by the University of Toronto. I would recommend Urban International School to any student striving to attend a university.

I made a lot of friends from my classes, they came from different countries, such as China, Vietnam, Korea, Turkey and UAE. I enjoyed the study environment in UIS. It helped me to improve various English skills, including the “four skills”, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and spelling. I like the interactive teaching method from my classes. Also, learning through Medias such as movies and YouTube made my classes less boring. I got accepted by University of Waterloo for Computer Science. I am looking forward to starting my University life there. Thank you Urban International School. UIS focuses on University preparation. It gives me the biggest advantage on study. I would recommend UIS if you are aiming to go to University.
