Voice Integrative School (VIS) is a non-denominational, co-educational, academic school for K through 8. We are an independent school that offers affordable tuition and after school programs throughout the year.

VIS was founded by educator Marie Lardino in 2000 to test the theory of Global Education on a school-wide level.

Throughout the years, VIS’ educational philosophy, formally known as global education has undergone its own evolution. However, our integrative pedagogical approach continues to be an issues-based and all-encompassing model that teaches the whole child. Moreover, we believe in maintaining a small community with a total enrollment never exceeding 80 students.

VIS fosters a strong sense of belonging and offers a challenging academic program that follows the overall expectations of the core subjects within the Ontario Curriculum. However, our students are encouraged to utilize critical thinking and analytical skills to investigate concepts in real-life contexts.

In addition, VIS offers a strong performing and liberal arts curriculum, as well as a dynamic sports program.

We pride ourselves on creating a learning environment that promotes academic challenge, personal leadership, responsible citizenship and the skills needed to learn for life.

Note: VIS’ integrative model of education is inclusive and respects the unique story behind each child. We foster a welcoming environment for children to grow into their own. What we do not do, is tell our students ‘what’ to think in relation to controversial social/political issues, and/or engage in specific topics that may best addressed in the home. 


During our Open Houses, interested families will be informed about our philosophy including our Integrative Education approach. Families will be given a tour of our school while classes are in progress. They will also meet some of our teachers and students, and will be given a chance to ask questions.

If you are unable to attend one of our Open Houses, we also provide independent meetings with our Principal Kristin McCullough who will conduct a private tour of our school.
