Digital Literacy Rich learning experiences At CIS, we integrate technology into classroom activities and the curriculum in order to provide rich and meaningful 21st century learning experiences. As a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School, we have adopted the K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum. This comprehensive curriculum is designed to empower students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world. Rich learning experiences There is no better way to kick off the school year than with a balanced approach. During the first week back, the secondary students at Lakeside participated in the Digital Wellbeing Week. 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. 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. For further details regarding devices, please refer to the One to World iPad programme parent guide. In grades 7 to 12, students must bring their own MacBook to school every day. For further details regarding devices, please refer to the MacBook programme parent guide.  Stories Loading... read more

CIS Foundation programme

CIS Foundation Programme CIS Foundation programme The CIS Foundation programme is designed for children entering grades 5-8 who are beginners in English. The programme is broken down into a primary foundation programme for students in grades 5-6 and a secondary foundation programme for students in grades 7-8. The aim of the rigorous one-year foundation programme, is to swiftly equip each student with the necessary English skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) so that by the end of the year, they can fully participate in all learning activities with their peers and successfully meet the expectations of CIS's IB curriculum. An established track record CIS has been teaching English as a second language (ESL) to students from around the world for more than 30 years. Our established track record makes us one of the most experienced and trusted international schools in Singapore to offer English Language Learner (ELL) programmes. We welcome students from more than 74 countries and through our experienced certified ELL teachers and comprehensive English curriculum, we are committed to equipping each student with the necessary skills to become effective communicators in English. Curriculum and areas of study In addition to intensive English lessons that incorporate an inquiry-based approach, students take classes in mathematics, science and individual and societies. This approach ensures no student falls behind in these important core subject areas. Classes are aligned to each student’s equivalent grade level, with a significant amount of time spent towards helping them acquire the necessary English competency needed for each subject. Lessons in study skills and exam preparation are also taught on a weekly basis. Class sizes are small and students are grouped according to their English proficiency level. They remain together for all lessons and join their peers in the respective grade / school division for lunch, house leagues and before and after school activities.The weekly primary timetable can be viewed here and a sample secondary timetable can be viewed here. Assessment and progression to CIS’s IB Programme Summative assessments occur at the start, middle and end of every semester. Those who satisfy the entry requirements are able to exit the programme and enter CIS's English programme in primary / secondary school. View the CIS academic calendar for all key dates. Device requirements Students must have their own IPAD ( grade 5 and 6) or MacBook (grade 7 and 8) with the latest operating system. Software required is programme specific and will either be provided by CIS or sold to students at a later date. Learn more on this page of our website.  Before you apply The admissions section on our website outlines the  entry requirements, application process, and fee schedule.

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.  Student support and well-being  Our dedicated student support and well-being team consists of a school psychologist, counsellors, learning support teachers, university advisors and nurses.  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:  Sunshine visits with a counsellor. Designed for new students, these visits help  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 with teachers and the student well-being committee to monitor students’ individual goals and/or progress.Ongoing education programmes and seminars for both students and parents.  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:  confidential individual or group counsellingconflict resolutionfriendship difficultiesindividual student planning and goal-settingCrisis (response) intervention  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.  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 language learning  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.   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.  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. Stories Loading... read more
