Head's welcome

https://www.cis.edu.sg/about/heads-welcome

Head&#039;s welcome Welcome to CIS We're proud of the reputation we’ve established for the range and rigour of our academic offerings, the outstanding quality of our school facilities, and perhaps most importantly the care and attention we provide to each of our students - from nursery to grade 12. Peter Corcoran, Head of School I encourage you to come and visit us in person. Walk through our halls and talk with our students and you will begin to appreciate their unique insights, talents and perspectives, You will be impressed by their respect and generosity as well as their intellectual curiosity about this interconnected world that they’ll one-day help to shape and lead. Our academically rigorous programme is complemented by a broad range of languages, fine arts, athletic and service learning opportunities designed to develop balance, deepen connections and to uncover true learning potential. Our pedagogical approach focuses on developing the skill-sets our students need to be successful in the 21st century. We haven’t replaced the 3 Rs. Instead we’ve embedded them within the context of the 4 Cs: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration. Our teachers encourage intellectual curiosity, foster creativity and inspire the pursuit of excellence in ways that define what a world-class, future-oriented education should be. They couple high expectations for success with relentless care and support - hallmarks of outstanding instructional practice. By doing this, our students become critical thinkers. They are global citizens equipped with the knowledge, skills, and expertise necessary to gain acceptance at the best colleges and universities in the world and to excel in the next set of challenges and opportunities that await them. I encourage you to visit and experience CIS for yourself. Walk through our hallways and talk with our students and you will begin to appreciate their unique insights, talents and perspectives. I’m confident that you’ll be as impressed as I am by their respect and generosity, as well as their intellectual curiosity and concern for this world they’ll one day help to shape and lead. I look forward to meeting you.Pete CorcoranHead of School read more

International Secondary School Grades 7 to 12 Secondary School at CIS is a challenging and supportive environment, resulting in students who are confident, passionate and driven to succeed. Reflecting our international context, our academically challenging Grades 7 to 10 curriculum draws from the best secondary curricula globally and is delivered within the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) framework, while students in Grades 11 to 12 study the internationally recognised IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). As a result, our students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Grades 7 to 12 In Secondary, students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world.

Grades 7 to 12 In Secondary, students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Secondary School Middle Years Programme Underpinned by the MYP framework, our stimulating and rigourous curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential, and best prepares them for the rigours of the DP programme. Our students think deeply about issues, work collaboratively, solve problems creatively, and communicate across a variety of media. In the MYP, students are encouraged to make practical connections between their learning and the real world. They develop understanding in traditional subject areas and see the relationships between them. We help our students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for success in the DP. Spanning Grades 7 to 10, the MYP consists of eight core subjects: Language and Literature in English or Chinese, Mathematics, Science, Individuals and Societies, Language Acquisition in French, Chinese, Spanish or English, Design, Arts - Music, Drama, Visual Arts or Media (grades 9-10 only in 20-21) and Health & Physical Education. Students are also required to participate in a range of Service as Action activities.&nbsp; Middle Years Programme In the MYP, students are encouraged to make practical connections between their learning and the real world.

Middle Years Programme In the MYP, students are encouraged to make practical connections between their learning and the real world. Secondary School Diploma Programme During their final two years of secondary school, our students study the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), a comprehensive and challenging two-year curriculum that includes coursework and leads to final examinations. The Diploma Programme incorporates the best elements of national systems, without being based on any one. Globally regarded as one of the premier High School Diploma programmes, the DP is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. Research reveals that universities in the UK and USA have a high regard for IB graduates, and the skills and attitudes developed. Our students have consistently scored above the IBDP world average and in the last five years have been accepted to over 350 leading universities around the world. Students select one subject from each of the six subject groups, and complete the core three requirements: the extended essay, theory of knowledge (TOK) and creativity, action and service (CAS).&nbsp; IB DP courses in 2020/2021 are outlined in this guide.&nbsp; Occasionally, there are a small number of students for whom the full IBDP is not the best option. These students study a reduced number of IBDP subjects and are awarded IB certificates and a CIS High School Diploma instead. The CIS Diploma is recognised by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and widely accepted by universities and other higher education institutions.

Secondary School A holisticapproach Our house system builds a sense of belonging and pride, and our SMART&nbsp;(Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time) programme provides opportunities for students to excel and develop new-found passions, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related. Excursion Week and field-based investigations see our students exercising leadership and learning first-hand about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns. Leadership is encouraged across all areas of the school. Each day for 40 minutes, students are engaged in SMART (Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time). SMART sees students participating in a variety of student initiated activities that seek to encourage independence and self directed learning. Activities range from academic enrichment and support (eg meeting with subject teachers for additional help) to student led clubs and initiatives such as student council and Model United Nations. Our house system is designed to build a strong sense of community and pride within our Grades 1 to 12 student body, and helps students develop leadership and teamwork skills. Students regularly participate in house events, and our house captains are charged with helping to foster team spirit and a sense of belonging. Learning at CIS is not just confined to the classroom. Students participate in a range of relevant and engaging hands-on outdoor learning opportunities including field trips and field investigations which allow them to apply their learning in a real world context. Excursion Week sees students in Grades 7 to 12 travelling to countries such as Thailand, China, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia and Canada to learn about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns first hand. Please note that all excursions have been cancelled in 20-21 due to the ongoing pandemic.&nbsp; In Secondary, students are presented with a wide range of leadership opportunities. From the traditional student council model with an active and engaged student executive committee, to sporting captains, theatrical leads and peer tutors, student leadership creates value for both the leaders themselves and our student cohort. As they develop leadership skills that are underpinned by our core values, our students are ready to embrace the challenges that lie ahead of them and act as leaders both locally and internationally. A holistic approach We provide opportunities for students to excel and develop new-found passions, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related.

Secondary School Communication and assessment Communication and connecting with our parents is important to us. Curriculum information and assessments are located in My.CIS and we share important need-to-know information through our weekly newsletters and advisories. Coffee mornings, parent seminars and hands-on workshops are hosted regularly, and conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Detailed and descriptive reports are issued four times a year. Our teachers use regular assessments through the school year to track each student’s progress. In the MYP, formative assessments monitor learning and provide ongoing feedback during a unit, while summative assessments evaluate student learning at the end of a unit by comparing it to a standard or benchmark. In the DP, assessment takes the form of both internal and external assessment. All final assessment is externally assessed and moderated and leads towards the award of the Diploma. Our open door policy ensures parents are able to meet with their child’s teachers at a mutually convenient time to discuss any concerns they may have. CIS benchmarks student achievement (Senior Kindergarten to grade 10) against Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) standards and international school norms in an external assessment called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). Conducted up to three times a year, MAP results in Math and Literacy are also used to identify trend patterns and overall cohort progress year on year. University Guidance University Guidance University Guidance University Guidance University Guidance All CIS students in grades 8 to 12 are supported by an experienced team of university advisors. Our advisors are members of professional organisations and have excellent relationships with admissions officers from many of the world’s leading universities. Their goal is to help each student identify and maximise the likelihood of admission to a range of “good fit” universities. Each year, over 150 representatives from leading universities across the world including Australia, Europe, the UK, Canada and the US, visit CIS to meet students and provide information on possible courses.

In our Chinese-English bilingual programme, students learn equally in both English and Chinese. Our rigorous curriculum delivered within the PYP framework, means our students engage in topic based learning commonly referred to as the Unit of Inquiry (UOI).

Science and social studies are learnt exclusively in the context of the UOI. Our top Digital Literacy Coaches work with our teachers to ensure that technology is used to support and extend learning across subject areas. Our unique STEAM programme, plays is an integral part of every primary school students’ education.

Instead, we engage our students in a wide variety of outdoor learning activities ranging from lessons in our Outdoor Discovery Centres to field trips, excursion week and Open minds (hands-on learning experiences in settings such as Fort Canning and Sungei Buloh wetlands). Parent involvement in CIS’ primary school is actively encouraged and plays an important role.

Our nursery curriculum focuses on developing children’s fundamental social, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as their fine and gross motor skills. As children move into Pre-Kindergarten, they engage in topic-based learning commonly referred to as the Unit of Inquiry (UOI), and different subject areas are integrated as they explore a particular concept or topic. Students have dedicated literacy and numeracy lessons, and specialist teachers for Chinese and French. Physical education, art, music and drama are delivered by either a specialist or the homeroom teacher. Where possible, learning in these specialist areas links back to the overarching topic.

Our kindergarten&nbsp;children learn in a dedicated kindergarten&nbsp;wing, where classrooms are organised in grade levels and spill out into learning pods. These learning pods are large, open, shared spaces where teachers set up hands-on learning centres. Other learning spaces that foster skill development include a junior library, kitchen, black box theatre, STEAM makerspace and a Kindergarten kitchen. Our Tanjong Katong (TK) Campus located in the east of Singapore, is smaller and more intimate and accommodates students 2* to 12 years of age. Classrooms for our youngest learners are warm, colourful, spacious and grouped together, ensuring a strong sense of community. Each classroom has direct access to an Outdoor Discovery Centre.

Our students love everything about these centres but some of the extra special features include a play fort, sound and herb garden, mud kitchen, natural tunnel, bike track and quiet and peaceful places for reflection. Through playing with mud, water, sand and loose objects such as sticks, stones, mesh and rope, our students engage in imaginative and creative thinking while solving problems. They learn to calculate, measure, invent, estimate, specify, analyse, hypothesise and test theories, thereby developing their thinking, communication and research skills. Kindergarten Communication and parent participation Parents play a very important role in their child’s foundational years and we encourage our parents to take an active role in their child’s education and school&nbsp;life. In turn, we aim to keep parents informed about their child’s learning progress, our programmes and the latest in educational research. Our early-years teachers are passionate about the children in their care, and work to ensure they feel safe, valued, secure and happy in both our schools. In nursery and pre-kindergarten, parents are welcome to stay for the daily settling-in activities, allowing their child to adjust to the concept of separation and school life. Our teachers communicate with parents every Friday via My.CIS (our parent portal) and we share important information through our advisories and weekly newsletters. Coffee mornings, assemblies, parent seminars and hands-on workshops are hosted regularly, while parent-teacher conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Student learning is documented via digital portfolios, and we issue detailed reports twice a year.

Parents

Parents An outstandingparent community We are incredibly fortunate to have an outstanding parent community at CIS. Our parents volunteer their time and their energy to the school in a number of ways. These include helping out in the classroom, as chaperones on field trips and Open Minds, as a room parent, or as a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Every parent of a child who is enrolled in either our Lakeside or Tanjong Katong campus is automatically a member of our PTA. By being a member of the PTA, you are part of a community who believes that effective parent involvement in our school enriches the educational experience of our children. There are no fees or dues to be paid, and we encourage everyone to get involved, either by volunteering or simply attending events. Our PTA ensures it is easy for everyone to find something enjoyable to attend, be it large campus-wide events, social coffees or outings.

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 60% 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.
