An Outstanding Academic Programme
Our cutting edge curriculum draws on best practices from around the world and is inspired by the most innovative and internationally acclaimed teaching pedagogies from countries such as Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, providing our students with a truly global educational experience. Innovative teaching strategies and fundamental beliefs about how students learn best ensure that each student is provided with an excellent academic foundation and is challenged to reach their full potential.
As an IB World School, inquiry is at the core of the CIS curriculum. Authentic learning experiences are related to the real world, in a way that students find meaningful. Gone are the days of learning by rote – today’s students ask questions, conduct in-depth research to solve problems, and develop analytical thinking and presentation skills.
To support the rigorous academic programme, robust offerings in arts (music, visual art and drama), sports, languages, personal/social/physical education, outdoor education and community service ensure the development of a well-balanced student. Technology is interwoven into the curriculum and provides students, true digital citizens, with an authentic 21st century learning experience, equipping them with skills essential for their future success.
As students progress towards high school, CIS educators hold them accountable to high standards to ensure that they are properly prepared to follow their dreams and pursue their profession of choice. CIS graduates go on to study at universities around the world.
