École secondaire publique Mille-Îles (Thousand Islands Public High School) is a high school located in Kingston, Ontario. It was founded in 1994, having initially started as a French program within Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute (KCVI) in 1977. In 1980 this became a separate module, serving students in grades 9 to OAC. The establishment of a distinct francophone public high school was first suggested in 1987, and the project came to fruition in 1994, leading to the inauguration of Mille-Îles as a distinct entity in 1995, still within the KCVI building. The school moved to its present location (the former location of Calvin Park Public School) in 1999, when it also expanded to welcome students in grades 7 and 8.
In April 2012, the school moved to a new building (a renovated elementary school), which combined «École élémentaire publique Madeleine-de-Roybon» and Mille-Îles under the same roof. The school (although they kept their separate identities) welcomes students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. There is also a daycare service offered by «La garderie éducative» .
The school motto is "felicitas per doctrinam," which means "happiness through learning."
Mille-Iles offers the IB Middle Years Programme. (International Baccalaureate). The school started the process to offer the IB Diploma Programme as of 2016.
A virtual tour of the school is available on Google Maps.
