Forest Heights Community School


The South Shore Regional School Board is a host partner in the Nova Scotia International Students Program (NSISP). Established in 1997, the NSISP is a joint venture of the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Developlement and regional school boards.

NSISP students are typically in junior and senior high school, coming here to study for a semester or full school year. They live with a local (Homestay) family during their time here in Canada. We host students from three regions of the world, approximately 1/3 of our students come from South America, Europe and Asia.Untitled-1

The Homestay family is at the heart of the NSISP. Living with local South Shore families, our international students are immersed in English and Canadian culture. In turn, host families learn about the culture, customs, and traditions of their student's home country. Host families are compensated for providing living accommodations and meals for the student. All other expenses are the responsibility of the student.

The NSISP has Homestay Coordinators in each regional school board. Coordinators work closely with host families to assist with the transition of students, to resolve any issues, and to provide on-going support.
