Nursery Inspired by the IB PYP framework, our curriculum focuses on developing children's foundational social, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as their fine and gross motor skills. Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 10 Reflecting our international context, our curriculum draws from the best curricula globally and is delivered within the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and IB Middle Years (MYP) framework. Grades 11 and 12 The Diploma Programme follows a curriculum set by the IB. This ensures that students globally are studying the same course material and are prepared for examinations at the end of Grade 12.

Students in Grades 4 to 6 must have an iPad, while students in Grades 7 through 12 must have their own MacBook computer at school every day.

Age and grade guidelines

https://www.cis.edu.sg/admissions/age-grade-guidelines

Age and grade guidelines At CIS, the holistic nature of our programme sees our students busy learning and interacting with their peers in and out of the classroom.  When students are placed in a grade that aligns with our age and grade boundaries, they are more likely to thrive, as significant differences in age and developmental stages can be challenging for the child and their peers. Grade placement at CIS is according to age. Children must be the age indicated by 31 August in the year of entry. Our minimum age requirements for entry into each grade level are outlined in the table below. Primary school Secondary school Age Grade level Age Grade level 2 Nursery 12 Grade 7 3 Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K)* 13 Grade 8 4 Junior Kindergarten (JK)* 14 Grade 9 5 Senior Kindergarten (SK)* 15 Grade 10 6 Grade 1 16 Grade 11** 7 Grade 2 17 Grade 12** 8 Grade 3     9 Grade 4     10 Grade 5     11 Grade 6     *With the exception of Nursery (where toilet training is included in the programme), children joining our Kindergarten programme must be completely toilet trained. **The Diploma Programme is for students aged 16 to 19. Any age exceptions will be subject to the approval of the Secondary School Principal. While these guidelines are an indication of the required age for each grade level, CIS will in exceptional circumstances accept students who are up to one year older than the grade level age. This is subject to approval of the School. An international curriculum Rolling admission We accept students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 throughout the year, although places are subject to vacancy. Entry into grades 9 and 10 is open until the last Monday in February each school year, while entry into grades 11 and 12 (the IB Diploma Programme) is only open to grade 11 students during the first two weeks of the school year.

The last 3 years of transcripts, school reports, testimonials and recommendations*.Photocopy of all relevant psycho educational or special education evaluation reports* (if applicable).3 passport size photographs (electronic JPEG format is acceptable).Photocopies of:student's passport(s).student's birth certificate*.student’s immunisation records*.

If documents are not in English, parents will need to provide official translated copies. Translations must be carried out by a Notary Public, a Translation Agency or your own National Embassy. Acceptance to CIS will be based on a comprehensive review of all requested documentation. This may include, but is not limited to:  • Consideration of a student’s age and/or the most recent grade level completed.  • Review of prior school reports.  • Student profile considerations including behaviour, social skills, work ethic, attitude, English proficiency level and additional learning support needs, if any, required by the student at the current school.  CIS may need to conduct assessments, and/or contact teachers at the student’s current school. Upon completion of the review process, CIS reserves the right to decline an application regardless of whether the applicable documentation and payment of the application fee is complete or not. Step 3 Sign the student contract upon acceptance of a place at CIS The CIS student contract must be signed by both parties within 14 days from the issue date of the contract to confirm a student’s enrolment. The Student Contract is a legal document that protects and assures the rights and conditions of the Student whilst enrolled at a Private Education Institution (PEI), in this case, the Canadian International School (CIS). Why do I need to sign a student contract? It is a legal requirement that all Students must enter into the Student Contract. The Student Contract is a critical document that helps to minimise future disputes, therefore, it is essential that it be completely understood by the Student (parents/legal guardians where a student is younger than 18 years of age) prior to enrolment. This video walks you through the contract, and this FAQ document answers a number of commonly asked questions. CIS 2020/2021 Student Contract Terms and conditions In addition to the student contract, all families who apply to CIS need to read and agree to the CIS Standard Terms and Conditions. Please note that you will receive a copy of the Terms and Conditions via email - you do not need to print and sign the following PDF document.  CIS 2020/2021 Terms and Conditions Supplemental Contract Once the student contract has been signed, a simpler supplemental contract must be signed on an annual basis. Supplemental student contracts for existing students who have already signed the original student contract must be signed by March each school year. If the supplemental contract is not signed by the necessary deadline, a student’s enrolment for the following school year will not be confirmed. If you have any queries regarding the CIS Student Contract, our Terms and Conditions, or the Supplemental contract, please contact our Admissions team at contracts@cis.edu.sg. Step 4 Pay the confirmation fee An invoice will be issued for the confirmation fee after the student contract is signed. This fee must be paid and received by the School by the due date indicated on the invoice. Should this not happen, both the place offered and the student contract will lapse. Step 5 Submit final documentation before school starts Students may start school as soon as all of these documents have been submitted to the Admissions Department: Photocopy of student’s Dependant’s Pass, Student Pass or NRIC* (Singaporean and Permanent Residents only)**Photocopy of each parent’s/legal guardian’s Employment Pass, Dependant’s Pass and/or NRIC* (Singaporean and Permanent Residents only)**Student Medical Form. *For Permanent Residents (PRs) please provide a copy of the re-entry permit indicating the PR number and the re-entry permit expiry date**Whichever is applicable read more
