Our vision is to offer a diverse curriculum and broad range of activities that allow our students to achieve their personal potential, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related. The recruitment and retention of quality teachers and support staff is therefore fundamental to us delivering on our promise.
Where our staff are from
If you'd like to learn about some of our highly qualified educators at CIS, take a few minutes to watch our One Minute Story videos. If you'd like to learn more, we'd like to invite you to come visit us in person to meet more of ur team.
With over 300 qualified teachers, from over 30 countries, we are perfectly positioned to deliver on our vision to students aged 2 to 18. We believe that the diversity of our teaching body is important as we deliver a curriculum, not exclusively Canadian, that draws from the best curricula globally.
Having two campuses in Singapore means that our teachers are able to collaborate cross campus to develop programmes, best practice and learning experiences. Over 77% of our teachers have multiple degrees or postgraduate qualifications, and many have IB experience (eg IB examiners, IB workshop leaders, etc). Many of our support staff are Singaporean, providing a unique connection to our home country of Singapore.
Perhaps more important though is our teachers’ commitment to developing in our students the skills that they will need in order to navigate an ever changing world. This happens across all levels of the school - from Kindergarten all the way through to Grade 12.
At CIS, our commitment to ongoing professional development sees us hosting a range of professional development workshops for our own teachers, IB teachers and leaders in the region, and educators from the greater regional community.
