The Ontario Federation of Independent Schools is a service association for independent schools providing visible, standard-setting leadership to member schools. OFIS encourages greater public understanding and appreciation for independent schools. The Giles School is a Gold Member of OFIS.


The Giles School’s Science teachers are members in the Science Teachers’ Association of Ontario (STAO). This membership provides opportunities for our teachers to be exposed to new Science online resources, attend the annual STAO conference, and be a part of the ScienceWorks workshops.


The SSAF provides small independent schools with the opportunity to engage in friendly competition with other private schools in a variety of sports and athletics.
