At Heritage International School, we will be dedicated to providing a quality Canadian education program and services in order to help our students attain their full potential academically, socially and physically, as well as provide them with the knowledge and skills required for them to be valued and contributing members of our society.
The school’s mission is to develop a child-centered system of education that allows students to become independent thinkers in their own right.
Heritage International School will ensure your children’s superiority not only in education, but also in building their independent and creative characters.
WHY CHOOSE HERITAGE?
Why choose Heritage? Why choose the Canadian Education?
In 2018, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked Canada #1 in the English-speaking world in science, math and reading. As in 2012, 2015, and again in 2018, Canada maintained strong performance and outperformed other English-speaking countries in all three evaluations.
According to the OECD’s Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), Canada consistently out ranks the United States and the United Kingdom, often by significant margins.
In fact, Canada ranks ahead of the systems in the US and the UK because the OECD measures an entire country’s system, not just hot spots of excellence which are not accessible to all due to geography or cost. In the vast Canadian public system, every child has access to quality schools.
Canada excels not only in studies in the English language, but is also a world leader in bilingual education.

Graduating From Heritage
No SAT1/SAT2 Required From Canadian Graduates In Egypt
Heritage is glad to announce that students who are graduating from Canadian schools in Egypt, and have not written the SAT1 & SAT2 exams can now apply to private universities in Egypt. No SAT1/SAT2 Required From Canadian Graduates In Egypt.
As all parents know, the Canadian High School Diploma is highly recognized worldwide as one of the top respected Diplomas. As such, we need not have students striving for the International Baccalaureate (IB) since not having to write SAT’s shows the quality of our Canadian Manitoba High School Diploma. The SAT1 & SAT2 should have never been forced/implemented on Canadian graduates from the beginning. However, due to some political/influential circumstances, it was forced on our students. With the new educated government officials at the Ministry of Higher Education, the SAT1 & SAT2 have been waivered from the Canadian graduates. Which means that Heritage students are not requested to write the SAT1 & SAT2 exams.
The school campus is designed and built according to the highest international standards with a land area of 20.000 square meters. It comprises of 4 classes at each grade level, adding up to approximately 56 classrooms. The classroom is designed to receive 25 students, according to international standards.
Heritage International School is going under continuous development. The main building that comprises the Kindergarten to grade 9 classes is considered to be phase 1 of construction.
Phase 2 is being built at the moment and will comprise the school’s indoor theater and extra classrooms expected to be used soon.
Phase 3 will comprise the swimming pool.
Our staff will take you on a tour to see the school’s
facilities and provide you with all the details you need.
Scheduled days: Every Monday and Wednesday starting
December, parents are welcomed to tour our school
