Message from
the president

The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful learning place for our international students makes UIS a truly special place. UIS welcomes students from all over the world and supports them in every single step they need to take in order to become a UIS student. Our team takes pride in being extremely supportive and caring assisting students with every aspect of their lives while they are studying and living in a new country.

Our Story

Urban International School (UIS) is a private high school in Toronto, inspected by the Ministry of Education. Over the last decade, we have been offering specialized academic programs that are designed for students who wish to pursue higher education in Canada and around the world. UIS has a team of friendly and dedicated teachers who are Ontario certified. UIS now offers grade 7 through grade 12 education programs, supporting a diverse student body from around the world, and preparing them for their bright future. 


Urban International School was founded in 2009, in the very heart of Toronto Downtown. Since its establishment, UIS has been working with a wide variety of students to develop a positive learning environment to make learning meaningful to every student.

UIS moved to the current location in 2017 for an expansion, and in 2018, UIS successfully opened its second campus in North York. Since the Pandemic started unexpectedly in March 2020, UIS quickly adapted and moved onto hybrid and online platforms to continue the learning for UIS students.

2021 - Present

UIS has continued to view the pandemic as an opportunity to continue to enhance our strong commitment to providing academic excellence and unprecedented student support through hybrid and E-learning courses.

UIS is continuing to grow. Our goal by 2025 is to find a school building to call our home. We will be moving to our own niche to accommodate all teams and students.
