We remain committed to ensuring our bilingual programme is the best in the region. In order to meet our high standards, we employ full time Chinese literacy coaches and have added, and continue to add, a wide range of resources (including Chinese readers and a variety of multimedia resources) to help benefit learning and enhance students’ Chinese language proficiency. Why is the increase higher in the diploma programme (DP - grades 11 and 12)? The diploma programme fee increase takes into account additional resources including a further university advisor as well as a social-emotional counsellor to help each student be successful in their DP journey. We remain committed to hiring high quality, experienced DP teachers and maintaining a low DP student:teacher ratio. While we are committed to delivering the highest quality programme, CIS remains one of the most competitively priced and affordable DP options in Singapore. Fee Comparison read more

Immunisation against these two diseases is also a CIS condition of enrolment. This Singapore National Childhood Immunisation Schedule outlines what vaccines are needed and when.  With effect from 1 February 2019, it is mandatory that all children aged 12 and below, who were not born in Singapore, must provide evidence of diphtheria and measles vaccinations when applying for long-term residency passes. This page outlines the process that you will need to follow, while this page outlines some frequently asked questions. Age requirements Our minimum age requirements for entry into each grade level are in the table below (children must reach the required age by the month / date indicated). 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.

The English Language Learner (ELL) programme is mandatory for students in Grades 1 through 10, if, after English proficiency assessment, CIS determines that the student requires this support programme. Both students and parents, by enrolling their child before or after assessment, agree to participate in the ELL programme as directed by the School. ELL grade level requirements Kindergarten Students entering Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten, or Senior Kindergarten programme are not formally assessed for English proficiency prior to admission. They are 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. Grades 1 to 5 Students entering Grades 1 through Grade 5 whose first language is not English are formally assessed at CIS for English proficiency either prior to admission or during the initial weeks of school. Assessment procedures vary by grade level so that they are appropriate to the age of the student. Grades 6 to 10 Students entering Grades 6 through Grade 10 whose first language is not English, or who are coming from a school where the language of instruction is not English, will be required to sit for an English proficiency test determined by CIS. Aptis Teen is an innovative English assessment tool designed by the British Council that assesses students’ English proficiency in four areas: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The cost for the test is S$95 inclusive of GST (for tests conducted in Singapore). Students are placed into one of six phases of language acquisition (where 1 is a beginner and 6 is proficient) after they have been tested. Since the application fee is non-refundable, applications should only be submitted when it is clear that your child meets the English entry requirement level. Aptis scores and entry guidelines Grade Level Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5 and 6 Grade 6 Eligible for August entry High Phase 2 for January entry Eligible Eligible Eligible Grade 7 Not eligible Eligible Eligible Eligible Grade 8 Not eligible August entry: eligibleJanuary entry: high phase 3 in Aptis test Eligible Eligible Grade 9 Not eligible August entry: eligibleJanuary entry: high phase 4 in Aptis test Eligible Grade 10 Not eligible Eligible Grades 11 and 12 Students entering Grade 11 must be proficient in academic English, as there is no ELL programme or support for students in Grades 11 or 12.
