The CIS Experience
The Canadian International School (CIS) provides the global child with the ultimate 21st century educational experience - one that is innovative, creative and bold. Students are inspired to achieve excellence as they participate in engaging academic, sporting, and fine and performing arts programmes that are rigorous but never rigid. Outstanding educators live and breathe the IB philosophy and encourage students to excel as they develop intellectual curiosity and independence of mind, concern and respect for others, a sense of compassion and high standards. Our co-educational graduate community goes on to study at universities around the world.
Challenging expeditions and community service opportunities empower students from over 60 countries to broaden their understanding of the world around them and develop leadership skills. As global citizens, our community celebrates their shared humanity and diversity.
We place a key focus on the use of modern information technology (IT) systems to support teaching, learning and communications. Today’s students are native digital citizens who move seamlessly from one digital platform to another. The CIS curriculum integrates technology to optimize and enhance student-learning experiences and deliver lessons in a very hands-on, minds-on manner.
