CIS offers all three IB programmes – the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme – and it has been delivering a high-quality education to expats for more than 25 years. While its curriculum is not exclusively Canadian, its approach to teaching does follow Canada’s student-led model.
Standout features include the bilingual programme in Chinese and English to students aged four to 10, its focus on outdoor learning, and a unique approach to teaching STEAM. The Lakeside campus is the newer, bigger brother of the two CIS schools; the Tanjong Katong campus is far less modern and only offers an IB education up to Grade 6.
What the school says: “Our academically rigorous programme is complemented by a broad range of languages, fine arts, athletic and service learning opportunities…”
