Vision, Mission and Values
The Culture of our School
The Canadian International School (CIS) offers students an opportunity to develop through a diverse and challenging curriculum and a wide range of activities. Students are given ownership of the learning process and are encouraged to actively participate in their own education by setting personal goals and practicing on-going self-evaluation. Our inquiry based programmes and activities encourage students to discover their interests and strengths. All of this is done in a safe, caring and supportive school environment that fosters positive attitudes and allows students to challenge themselves and be risk-takers, without the fear of being judged.
Engage. Enlighten. Empower.
CIS will provide extraordinary learning opportunities for the globally connected student. A nurturing environment, an international curriculum, and a culturally diverse community will facilitate exceptional achievements. Together we will take action to make the world a better place.
Our Core Values
Values should be more than inspiring or beautiful words. Our values are a behavioural blueprint that shape who we are as a school community and as individuals. In all that we do, we ask ourselves – does this promote what we value most?
Respect: We respect ourselves and respect others for their special talents, skills and contributions.
Commitment: We keep our promises and will fulfil all our commitments.
Integrity: We believe that integrity is the heart of all lasting relationships and endeavours, and will work with each other in good faith.
Collaboration: We will cooperate with each other, learn and have fun together to achieve things which are of significance.
Responsibility: We take pride in all that we do and are accountable for our actions.
