One of the truly defining characteristics of a CIS education is the diversity that comes with having a student body from over 65 countries and no one dominant nationality. We celebrate both our internationalism and the uniqueness of each member of our community, and as a school community are greatly enriched by this diversity.
Our students enjoy excellent academic and sporting results, a supportive community, an outstanding extra-curricular programme, exceptional teachers, world-class facilities and yet we believe our greatest achievement is the quality of character which CIS students exhibit. At all times, students are encouraged to excel in every area as they develop intellectual curiosity and independence of mind, concern and respect for others, a sense of compassion and commitment to high standards.
Students are provided with many opportunities to celebrate our internationalism throughout the year. Visitors to CIS will see children from all areas of the world come together to learn and play. It is this diversity that allows our students to experience a truly global education, and makes working with classmates and friends from other backgrounds and cultures second nature.
Our qualified, experienced and dedicated teachers share the CIS commitment to educational excellence and uphold our community outreach ethos. Whilst the majority of our teachers are initially from Canada, they are joined by colleagues from countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, the USA, China and France. This diversity adds to the richness of our communities' cultural tapestry.
Our professional support staff are both expatriate and Singaporean and display a strong commitment to upholding the CIS beliefs.
A child's school life is greatly enriched by a family that is well informed and active in school affairs. At CIS, it is a common sight to see parents in the classroom, helping out with excursions and open mind programmes, attending PTA events and engaging in Community outreach efforts.
We warmly welcome parental involvement in the CIS community, and hope that our parents find their time with CIS as rewarding as their children do.
Parents of older children may find fewer opportunities to volunteer in the classroom but there are still many ways to be engaged in the CIS community. One way to get involved in school life is to join the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA is a lively and dynamic group, and consists of parents who have children in all grades across the school. The PTA hold regular events and are an essential part of the school community and CIS experience. Interested? Read more about the PTA and how you can get involved here.
We look forward to welcoming you to each campus!
Parental Support and Education
Research into how children learn best has changed the way educators approach teaching today. At CIS, we believe and understand that parents need to know how as well as what their children are learning in school. We understand that learning can look different to what parents remember from their own school days, so we have made a commitment to running frequent curriculum workshops and information sessions. These sessions provide parents with detailed information on the CIS curriculum and programmes, and also give an insight into how teachers educate and inspire our students. Parents who attend these sessions often comment how invaluable the information is.
