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.

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 130 students.

VIS fosters a strong sense of belonging and offers a challenging academic program based on Ontario Curriculum expectations. All subjects ask students to utilize critical thinking and higher order skills to solve problems 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.
