Our Leadership

Shawn Vento

Head of School

Shawn Vento is from Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Physical Health and Education from the University of Toronto, a master’s degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with Educational Leadership from SUNY Buffalo State and a professional certification with Ontario College of Teachers. Shawn joined KISJ in 2015.

I think everyone should read Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Outside of school, I most enjoy spending time with family; camping, hiking, fishing and most of all, laughing!

I’m inspired by the words of Helen Keller, “Character can not be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
