The Canadian International School (CIS) is an international school located in Singapore. We are proud to be an IB World School and strive to engage, enlighten and empower our students with a 21st century education.
We opened our doors in 1990 and have earned a reputation for excellence. This standing has been achieved through years of successful practice and a firm understanding and implementation of educational research and teaching methodologies tailored for the global student. Our students are engaged, enlightened and empowered by participating in an outstanding programme. At CIS, we celebrate both our internationalism and the uniqueness of each of the 60 plus nationalities represented among our students and staff. In a multicultural and multilingual environment, with English as the language of instruction, we are greatly enriched by this diversity. Our community has the opportunity to develop an understanding of Canada's culture, customs and approach to education. It is truly the kind of "cultural mosaic" for which Canada has become so well known.
We have a tradition of curriculum development and innovation that is based on best practices world wide, and as an IB World School offer all three programmes of the International Baccalaureate to children aged 3 to 18. The final two years of these programmes, taught in Grades 11 and 12, lead to the award of the IB Diploma, a qualification recognized and sought after by universities around the world.
In partnership with parents, we strive to equip our students with 21st century skills - skills that will enable them to thrive, exercise leadership, achieve ambitious and worthy goals, and to make a positive difference in an increasingly globalized world. These skills are essential for their future, whether it is tomorrow or in ten years from now.
