Our Unique Story
The Webtree International School of Education (W.I.S.E.) was founded in order to provide the best education and support for each and every student. W.I.S.E. was born from the necessity that education should be both individualized and focussed on our students’ advancement in order for successful placement in the top Canadian universities and colleges.
Rapid technological developments, changing workplace requirements and our complex bilingual and multicultural societies all create demands for a wider range of educational programs and smaller class sizes to meet individual student needs. And yet, our public schools class sizes are exploding and teacher to student ratios are continuing to expand with a larger and larger gap every year. Students are not getting their individualized educational needs met because there just isn’t enough time in the day or teachers to handle the numbers. W.I.S.E. was founded in order to put the student first, above all! Our small class sizes, exceptional instructors, skilled staff and additional support and programming, provides our students with more than just a degree. We are able to teach and support every student along the way, not just provide curriculum.
With a class sizes of up to only 6 students, our classroom experience is unparalleled and unique. With tailored, individuated teaching with nothing less than an experiential approach, W.I.S.E. offers outstanding university preparation. 100% of our graduates attend the universities and colleges of their first choice. We have
150 students including full time, part time and tutoring students
an average class size of 6 students to 1 teacher
9 countries represented in our international enrollment
30% of our graduates enter science programs in universities and colleges of their choice
we provide a minimum of 8 top-notch exceptional workshops
workshops are specifically designed for individual success.
We are committed to providing highly personalized education for everyone. Every one of our students has a seat in forefront of the classroom; everyone is engaged and receives the undivided attention of the teacher. This encourages the full involvement of the class every day. W.I.S.E. facilitates a participatory atmosphere where every student gets plenty of individual attention and their educational needs are met and supported.
Transition from various schools, countries, experiences, can be demanding for our youth and teens for a myriad of reasons, especially international students who are not only dealing with the challenges of getting a high school education, but with cultural, personal, educational, environmental, and logistical life needs. That is why it is essential that our academy provides more than a curricula. We provide guidance and support, understanding and skills for thriving at school and beyond.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Webtree International School of Excellence, staff and faculty understand and are committed to practicing the understanding of diversity as the presence of a wide range of human qualities and attributes within a group, organization, or society. The dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to, ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
We understand equity as a condition or state of fair, inclusive, and respectful treatment of all people. Equity does not mean treating people the same without regard for individual differences. We are committed to the fair and just treatment of all community members through the creation of opportunities and reduction of disparities in opportunities and outcomes for diverse communities in Ontario. We understand that these disparities are rooted in historical and contemporary injustices and disadvantages.
We understand inclusion as the situation in which individuals or communities (both physical and demographic) are fully involved in the society in which they reside, including the economic, social, cultural and political dimensions of that society. It requires the creation of an atmosphere where everyone feels welcome, respected, able to participate fully and valued. It’s about recognizing the needs of each individual and having the right conditions so that each person has the opportunity to bring their entire selves to work and study, and contribute their ideas, experiences and talents to the fullest.
