Canadian International School (CIS) is a private international school in Singapore, that celebrates its internationalism with 70 nationalities represented among its students and staff.
Canadian International School has two locations in Singapore:
- Lakeside in the west (from Nursery- students aged 2 through to Grade 12), and
- Tanjong Katong in the east (for students aged 3 to 12).
The Lakeside Campus adopts a schools-within-a-school design, with a dedicated Kindergarten wing and designated Primary and Secondary zones. All classrooms are designed as learning pods: large open and versatile spaces. Kindergarten and Primary classrooms are organized by grade levels, while Secondary classrooms are organized by subjects.
Among the Lakeside’s facilities are:
- dedicated STEAM maker spaces,
- a green room,
- a digital recording studio,
- science labs,
- an arts center and a 500-seat theatre,
- a gymnasium and multi-purpose recreational center,
- a multi-story library,
- a sports field,
- a swimming complex, and
- tennis courts,
In December 2019, a brand new wing’s construction commenced in Lakeside Campus and is due to open in mid-2021.
The Canadian International School follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum from Kindergarten through to Grade 12.
The Kindergarten program for the youngest learners (aged 2 to 5) and the Primary School program for students in Grades 1 to 6 are delivered within the Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework.
Secondary School students in Grades 7 to 10 follow the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), and students in Grades 11 to 12 study the internationally recognized IB Diploma Programme (IBDP).
CIS’s pedagogical approach focuses on developing 4Cs skill-sets students need to succeed in the 21st century: Critical thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration.
The curriculum is complemented with a broad range of languages.
CIS offers a pioneering bilingual Chinese-English program, which is available to students in pre-kindergarten to grade 6.
CIS also offers a French-English bilingual program for Senior Kindergarten to Grade 6.
Annual Tuition fees vary from S$ 17,450 for the Nursery half-day program to S$ 44,200 for Grades 11 to 12 in 2022/2023.
