Who we are.

The OYIS Intensive Program has a cross-disciplinary focused approach, throughout the course each day. Our intensive program is a stand-alone week-long program of fun, theme-based curriculum to engage the children collaboratively with their peers. This particular approach lends itself to an enjoyable atmosphere with less of an emphasis on the academic elements of learning.

As part of STEM Week within the Winter Intensive Program in December 2020, our students planned out and created their own Stop Motion animations. They did an amazing job and we are really proud of their efforts! Check out their fantastic videos here.

Excursions

During the year we hold one Excursion as part of the intensive programs. Having the children participate in an excursion where they have the opportunity to learn English enables them to be able to use the language they have developed and practiced over the course of the year.

city. As numbers rise, the risk to our community and the need to be vigilant increases. We hope you can continue to
support us as we work to keep our school community safe.
