Voice Integrative School (VIS) is a non-denominational, co-educational, academic school for K through 8. It has been a teacher education research school and practicum site for various Ontario Faculties of Education. 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 has undergone its own evolution. However, our integrative pedagogical approach continues to be a holistic, issues-based and all-encompassing model of education that teaches the whole child. We strongly believe in maintaining a small community with a total enrollment never exceeding 100 students.
VIS fosters a strong sense of belonging and offers a challenging academic program that follows the overall expectations of the Ontario Curriculum, but more closely adheres to European standards of teaching and learning. All subjects ask students to utilize critical thinking and analytical skills to investigate ideas in real-life contexts. We offer a strong performing and liberal arts curriculum, as well as a dynamic sports program founded on approaches that are intrinsic to Integrative Education.
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 topics 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 meet some of our teachers and students, and have a chance to ask questions. The following Open Houses will be held in-person.
