At Waterloo Independent Secondary School, we understand the challenges that students face, in particular students who are new to Canada. Parents choose to send their children to Waterloo Independent Secondary School with the expectation that they will be admitted to a Canadian university of their choice and that they will graduate successfully. Parents entrust their children to us and place all their hopes in us for their children’s future. Our obligation is to earn the trust of both students and their parents. Our mission is to support students in making decisions that will help them reach their goals.
We have great expectations for all of our students. We want them to show enthusiasm for learning English well. We work hard to foster a spirit of independence in them because we know how important it is for their success in university and college. We want them to develop in character so that they are well prepared when they leave school and go into the workplace
WISS encourages students to be diligent in their school work, to persevere through difficult times, and to do their best.
With the guidance of teachers and school administration, our students will reach their port of dreams. It is with great pride that we watch our graduates go off to university. Our confidence in their success comes knowing that they have had excellent teachers and strong guidance along the way.

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:
Grade 11 Student
The courses at Waterloo Independent Secondary School are well set to match the direction of each student’s university curriculum. I have been transferred from other school and I find all the courses here are helpful to me. WISS is ideal for international students who are new to Canada.
Rotman School of Business
Time flies so fast, I have graduated from Waterloo Independent Secondary School for two years. It was a time of fulfillment and happiness with my teachers at WISS. Now I am studying at the top business schools in the world. My high school study has laid a solid foundation for me, so I don’t feel that learning is very difficult now.
