The CIS Experience - The Culture of Community
The CIS experience begins with students being recognised as individuals and appreciated for the gifts that they bring with them. We aim to make the transition for new students and their parents as smooth and enjoyable as possible, and many members of our school community are involved in providing a warm welcome and needed support networks. As well as the warm welcome from our highly experienced team of educators, older students and peers are also instrumental in ensuring new students acclimatize and feel at home at CIS. Together, we make sure every child settles into school life quickly so that they feel part of the CIS family.
Our Faculty – Exceptional Educators
Our teachers are passionate about every aspect of school life and are dedicated to providing a supportive, rigorous and challenging school environment for all students. Their endless enthusiasm, vitality and commitment both in and out of the classroom, ensure that our students enjoy an outstanding education.
Parents are an Essential Element of the Canadian International School Community
Parents can look forward to becoming part of an inclusive, close and supportive school community when their child joins the Canadian International School (CIS).
Our parents are highly valued members of our community, and partner with us in the education of their children. There are a multitude of opportunities for parents to become involved in school life and be part of the definitive CIS experience. Parent volunteers are welcome throughout the school in areas that include: the classroom, the library, helping out with stage productions, volunteering on field trips, working with our curriculum coordinators and the Parent Teacher Association.
The CIS Parent Teacher Association (PTA) welcomes parent involvement and encourages close ties between parents and the school. PTA parents host and volunteer at school events such as Uniting Nations Week, Teacher Appreciation Day and the annual PA garage sale. There are a number of active committees that always need parental involvement and support – parents are encouraged to get in touch to find out how to become an active member and join a great group of like-minded people!
