Nucleus High School was founded on the basic philosophy of ‘individualized learning’ and a strong sense of belonging and connection. We believe that even though every child needs to grow in his or her own unique ways, education must not disengage children from their culture and society. Our dynamic, highly qualified teachers and their stupendous mix of time-tested and modern methods of instruction allow each individual student to realize his or her true academic potential. Our small class size, use of educational technology and highly interactive and active teaching-learning activities make learning all the more engaging and profitable. Our evaluation methods focus not only on the academics, but go beyond to assess the “affective” and “reflective” aspects of personality, too.

Nucleus High School is also a best choice for international students as it offers them a safe and positive learning environment with excellent opportunities to develop academic and social skills to prepare them for not only higher education at top international universities but also to prepare them for the ever fluid job market. Catering to their singular needs, we offer a range of full-year and semester based courses.

To help any students who might want to hone their English or want assistance with any related skills, we offer an internationally-competitive ESL program which provides world class support by focusing on all aspects of language learning in a very scientific manner. Students in this programme spend extra time on developing their language skills along with their selected academic courses.

In addition to educational instruction, international students also receive continuous support, guidance and counselling. These students are provided guided tours to attend local social and cultural events to help them adjust to Canadian society. Students also have opportunities to experience the diversity and history of Canada while building relationship with their peers and teachers.

Once again, at Nucleus High School, we believe that every student is a unique individual waiting to be explored and allowed to bloom into a unique, though beautiful blossom.  We strive to assist students in achieving their learning goals and offer support to address their needs. We achieve this through a variety of educational modalities and a high degree of personal attention.
