Opened in 1955, it was a very small school until it received a $6.7 million grant and 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) were added. Today it hosts grades 7 through 12, dividing the junior students into grades 7-9 and the senior students into grades 10–12, and has both an English program and late French Immersion program. The KISH school mascot is a torch, and the school motto is "Stamus Pro Veritate". KISH contains an industrial arts room, home economics room, library, gymnasium, 3 computer labs, cafeteria, and a stage. On school property there are also three tennis courts, a softball diamond, 2 soccer / rugby fields and a sports track. There are many extracurricular activities offered to students, such as Student Council, Band, Drama, Peer Tutoring, Student Police, and a wide range of sports such as volleyball, rugby, soccer, basketball, badminton, cross country and track and field. A very successful Canadian Travel and Tourism Diploma and Agriculture Certificate program are offered to senior high students as an extra-curricular program with curriculum links to a number of courses. KISH also has an annual show called the Green and White Revue, which features talent from the student body.
