Who We Are
At NSRIC and NIST, disseminating knowledge is our core value.
The Ontario Education System, of which NIST is a part, believes that its moral purpose is to ensure that all children are educated to high intellectual levels. As twenty-first-century global citizens, we have inherited a world which demands proficiency in and adaptability to its dynamic nature, whether it would be mastery of high efficiency operating technological platforms or intricate webs of knowledge and information transferal. The bar has been set very high when it comes to understanding the world we live in. At NIST, we believe that the way forward is through change and adaptability, both of which can only come with the proper education, not only in terms of content but also in terms of the medium through which the content is delivered. Our intent, therefore, is to bring quality education to all our students. This includes support with technology to facilitate online participation.
It is noted that high school includes Grades 9 to 12 in the Canadian education system. Grades 9 to 10 are called Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Grades 11 to 12 are called Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) in some countries. In the Canadian system, O-Level is roughly equivalent to Grade 11 and A-Level is roughly equivalent to Grade 12 or higher. However, at a minimum, successful completion of the General Certificate of Education (GCE) with five O-Level subjects in addition to at least two A-Level subjects are required for a direct admission to a Canadian college or university.
For students with an Associate of Science (AS) Level, four AS-Level subjects are required as an equivalent to five O-Level and two A-Level subjects to get admission in a Canadian college or university. For students with an AS-Level, four AS-Level subjects (i.e., equivalent to five O-Level and two A-Level subjects) are needed to get admission in a Canadian college or university. In other countries such as the Caricom region, O-Level is called CXC and A-Level is called CAPE.
