WISS Academy | Elementary Division

WISS Academy, Waterloo's Newest Elementary School! Coming Soon.

Yes, you heard that correctly. Due to the success of our Secondary School, it was an easy option for WISS to start setting the foundation for an Elementary School. 

Although, we are only at the initial stages we are incredibly excited for our WISS community. We hope to share more information with you in the near future but also hope that you can be involved in the process too!


Please contact if you would like to come and talk more about our Elementary program.
