International Language School Languages At CIS, we value our community’s linguistic diversity and are committed to promoting multilingualism. Our students come from over 70 nations, and our language offerings are designed to help them develop an understanding of other cultures as well as to develop proficiency in an additional language. Chinese English Bilingual Programme Our students come from over 70 nations, and our language offerings are designed to help them develop an understanding of other cultures as well as to develop proficiency in an additional language. CIS French English Bilingual Programme Our students come from over 70 nations, and our language offerings are designed to help them develop an understanding of other cultures as well as to develop proficiency in an additional language. With the exception of our kindergarten to primary Chinese-English and French bilingual programmes, our academic programme is primarily delivered in English. We also support students whose first language is not English through our English Language Learner programme, and to develop skills in their mother tongue wherever possible. Daily language lessons start in Junior Kindergarten, and students are placed in classes according to their linguistic ability and are taught by highly experienced language teachers. As students move into Secondary School and Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP), language classes may be scheduled in double period blocks (learning will equal five periods per week), which allows for a more focused approach to academic content.  Language pathways at CIS Grades 11-12 Language and Literature or Literature 6 Language acquisition: Chinese, French, Spanish, English  7 School Supported Self Taught Language 6   Grades 7-10 MYP Language and Literature English or Chinese 5 Language acquisition: Chinese, French or Spanish  After school languages (via the activities programme)8 Grades 1-6 Chinese-English bilingual programme 2 / French-English bilingual programme 3 Language Acquisition: Chinese, French or Spanish4 Junior & Senior Kindergarten Chinese-English bilingual programme 2 Language Acquisition: Chinese or French   Pre-Kindergarten Chinese-English bilingual programme 1&2   From August 2020 at Lakeside only Equal exposure to both languages and fully aligned with the PYP.

From the incredible Open Minds programme which brings learning alive in a completely different way, to the incredible inclusion of STEAM-based ideas in each subject.” Kate Moreau Primary Tanjong Katong & Secondary Lakeside parent Bilingual "We are very happy with their dedication to teaching the Chinese language. They are truly committed to being one of the best Chinese-English bilingual programmes in Singapore."

The Canadian International School is an International Baccalaureate School. 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. Do you offer a Chinese-English Bilingual Programme? Yes. Our Chinese -English Bilingual programme is open to students in junior kindergarten through to grade 6. It is offered at both our Lakeside and Tanjong Katong campuses. It is fully aligned with the IB PYP and includes two qualified teachers per class: one native English speaker and one native Chinese speaker. From Senior Kindergarten onwards, students must meet the specific language requirements to enter the programme. For more details visit here. Are there English Language entry requirements at CIS?

Secondary Academic Preparation Programme

https://www.cis.edu.sg/learning/sapp

SAPP Preparing students for school At CIS, we pride ourselves on our diverse population. We welcome students from all backgrounds and believe that diversity breeds understanding. However, in some cases, students from other school systems may not have the requisite skills in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies to meet CIS’ challenging IB curriculum. The CIS Secondary Academic Preparation Programme (SAPP) was created to assist students that are between 11 and 15 who are applying for Grade 7 to Grade 9 academic programmes in 2017. The Programme provides the best possible academic environment for students to build their knowledge and skills in key disciplines in preparation for international school entry assessment. The CIS Secondary Academic Preparation Programme (SAPP) was created to assist students that are between 11 and 15 who are applying for Grade 7 to Grade 9 academic programmes in 2017. The Programme provides the best possible academic environment for students to build their knowledge and skills in key disciplines in preparation for international school entry assessment. The CIS Secondary Academic Preparation programme is focused on the development of knowledge and skills in academic subjects: Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies as well as the development of strong English language skills. The programme recognises that English Language Learners will vary in the time needed to acquire the language proficiency standard for entry into an international school, and students are able to continue in the programme until they have reached the required level of proficiency. Programme aims To develop students’ academic standards to a level that is appropriate to their grade in Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.To use English language skills to obtain, process, construct, and report on subject matter information in spoken and written form.To acquire and use appropriate learning strategies to research, construct and apply academic knowledge. Curriculum MathematicsThe programme of study will be based on weekly units that are aligned to the equivalent grade level of the student within an international school context. There will be particular emphasis on the consolidation of skills and the acquisition of necessary mathematical language. ScienceThe Science programme supports students in developing their understanding of the nature of science and the related scientific knowledge, skills and processes through broad and interconnected themes including: Interactions, Systems and Diversity. Social StudiesThe Social Studies programme is centred on Singapore and the local region. In addition to their growth in the academic understanding of people, places and environments, this study supports students in their transition to Singapore and develops their understanding of the cultures and environments that they will be interacting with on a daily basis.

Pastoral Care

https://www.cis.edu.sg/learning/pastoral-care

Pastoral Care Pastoral Care We believe a good education focuses on the development of the whole child. Our principals, teachers and student support and well-being team work together to foster each childs’ social, emotional and academic well-being. In primary school, homeroom teachers are responsible for ensuring each child has the level of pastoral and emotional support they need, while in secondary school, advisory teachers, who students meet with each morning, are responsible for the delivery of a dedicated pastoral care programme. Advisors also assist students with goal setting, time management, exam practice and study skills.&nbsp; Student support and well-being&nbsp; Our dedicated student support and well-being team consists of a school psychologist, counsellors, learning support teachers, university advisors and nurses.&nbsp; Recognising the need for a holistic approach to student support, the team run programmes across the school year to help students develop the skills and strategies needed to proactively manage their own well-being. These include:&nbsp; Sunshine visits&nbsp;with a counsellor. Designed for new students, these visits help&nbsp; students understand who to go to for support, and help our counsellors monitor how students are adapting to their new environment. Primary students meet as a group, so they’re introduced to other new students in their grade.Weekly meetings&nbsp;with teachers and the student well-being committee to monitor students’ individual goals and/or progress.Ongoing&nbsp;education programmes and seminars&nbsp;for both students and parents.&nbsp; Counselling Our school psychologist and counsellors work closely with teachers to provide students and their families with individual support. Their approach will be developmentally appropriate, and may include any of the following:&nbsp; confidential individual or group counsellingconflict resolutionfriendship difficultiesindividual student planning and goal-settingCrisis (response) intervention&nbsp; University guidance Academic and career guidance for students in grades 9-12 is offered by our university advisors. Learn more about the services they offer on our secondary page.&nbsp; Learning support Our learning support programme is intended for students who need additional help to achieve their academic goals. Our learning support teachers work directly with teachers and students to meet each child’s needs. English Learning&nbsp; CIS has a comprehensive English Language Learner (ELL) programme for students in grades 1-10 (see this page of our website to understand English language entry requirements). Our ELL programme supports all ranges of language needs and is fully integrated into our academic curriculum. It is designed to support each student’s academic learning needs at their respective phase of English proficiency.&nbsp;&nbsp; Students in kindergarten do not follow a formal ELL programme, as they’re immersed in an English-speaking environment inside the regular classroom. Homeroom teachers are oriented to the needs of young children who are not speakers of English and can consult with a member of the English Language Learner (ELL) Team on a case-by-case basis for assistance.&nbsp; Transition and TCKsWe recognise that students who are new to CIS will be in “transition” as they have moved from another country, while many of our students will identify as “third culture kids” (TCKs). Academic staff are trained to be aware of these aspects and the specific issues that can arise.

Outdoor learning

https://www.cis.edu.sg/learning/outdoor-learning

Outdoor learning A holistic experience At CIS, we offer a range of experiential learning opportunities where students learn beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. This mode of learning is both memorable and engaging, and encourages students to apply their learning in a hands-on, minds-on manner. Our students develop a sense of independence, collaboration, resilience and responsibility as they engage with the real world and learn about local, regional, global and environmental issues.

A holistic experience Students engage in a range of experiential learning opportunities where they learn beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. Programmes vary in length and focus, and the level of challenge increases as students progress through the respective grade levels. Outdoor learning programmes include Open Minds in Primary School, field trips, Secondary DP field investigations and Excursion Week. Open Minds sees Primary students (Grades 1 to 6) spend up to a week in a variety of real world settings. Investigation topics are linked to both our curriculum and the units of inquiry found within the Primary Years Programme (PYP). First-hand experience with artifacts, field experts, and opportunities to go behind the scenes create unique moments of extremely powerful hands-on, minds-on learning. Excursion Week* sees students in Grades 4 to 11 travelling to countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Canada with their teachers and peers. Distance travelled is commensurate with age, and Excursion Week provides students with a unique opportunity to develop a sense of independence, as well as an understanding of global issues, and other people and communities. Secondary excursions have a more concentrated focus on community outreach, and students participate in a range of activities including house building in Cambodia, planting friendship groves in Ladakh, and working with NGOs to help those in need. Fieldwork in the Diploma Programme (DP) is part of a student’s coursework and counts towards their internal assessment. Fieldwork serves a distinct purpose: to expand, reinforce and extend concepts and skills that are taught in class. It enriches the study of particular themes within the course, and adds to students’ knowledge, understanding and awareness, helping to make learning engaging and relevant. As they learn through practical work, students collaborate and develop investigative, analytical and organisational skills. *Excursion Week 2020/21 is cancelled due to COVID 19.

Compelled to act Our students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are provided with meaningful opportunities to engage in service and to practise leadership skills, as a preparation for life beyond CIS. The two arms of service at CIS are: local service, where students connect with members of the Singapore community; and global service, where they work with regional NGOs and partner organisations, actively addressing the issues they care about. Our students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are provided with meaningful opportunities to engage in service and to practise leadership skills, as a preparation for life beyond CIS. Through classroom investigations, community partnerships, and other service and leadership opportunities, they actively seek ways to contribute and give back. This approach fosters empathy as students develop an understanding of the challenges the world’s people and environments face. Service activities vary in terms of time commitment. They can be one-time events, year-long or multi-year commitments. Students across the school are often involved in leading activities that focus on improving some aspects of school life, or in raising awareness of issues facing the community. In Secondary School, students must satisfy the IB Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) requirements to complete their courses. Stories Loading... read more

Rich learning experiences Learning experiences are made richer by the appropriate use of technology, and skills learnt are directly transferable to the workplace. In today’s world, literacy has evolved beyond its basic definition of knowing how to read and write. Everyone is required to know how to process, deliver and receive information in today’s highly digitalised world. It is inevitable that the definition of literacy includes components of digital literacy, which emphasises the ability to use digital technology, communication tools and networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information. Learning experiences are made richer by the appropriate use of technology, and skills learnt are directly transferable to the workplace. Led by our Digital Literacy coaches, our ‘One to World’ programme ensures our students learn how to think critically and ethically as they harness technology in their learning; behave safely and appropriately online; to identify what information is important online, use technology as a tool to showcase their skills and talents. iPads and MacBooks It is compulsory for all students to have the required device from the first day of school. In grades 4 to 6, students must bring their own iPad to school every day.&nbsp;For further details regarding devices, please refer to the&nbsp;One to World iPad programme parent guide.&nbsp;In grades 7 to 12, students must bring their own MacBook to school every day.&nbsp;For further details regarding devices, please refer to the&nbsp;MacBook programme parent guide.&nbsp; Stories Loading... read more
