Our Story

“UIS navigates to pull and to lead students to their success!”

Urban International School (UIS) is a private high school inspected by the Ontario Ministry of Education. We offer a specialized academic program that is geared specifically for students who wish to pursue higher education in Canada and abroad. Depending on the program the student wishes to pursue, UIS focuses on the academic requirement of the program to ensure that the student fulfills them, increasing the chance for success. We always promote communication between students and teachers since we believe it will help students achieve success academically and personally.

As well as our academic program, UIS understands that with the changing focus of society, we offer specialty programs like media studies, art (fine arts, photography), and communications technology in order to meet the needs of our current student body. Our graduates get accepted to many prestigious universities such as University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, University of British Columbia, McMaster University, McGill University and more.

UIS provides courses ranging from Grade 9 to Grade 12. Our student body includes students from all around the world including Asian, European and Middle Eastern countries. Teachers at UIS are Ontario Certified Teachers who are friendly and dedicated to students’ need and learning.
