CIS Profile 2017
The Canadian International School (CIS) is a leading international school in Singapore. Founded in 1990, CIS has over 3,000 students from more than 70 nationalities enrolled across two campuses - Lakeside in the west (for students aged 3 to 18 years) and Tanjong Katong in the east (for students aged 3 to 12 years).
A Global Curriculum
CIS is one of the few international schools in Singapore to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes, from Primary Years through to the Diploma Programme. The CIS curriculum is benchmarked against national curricula globally, allowing students to successfully transition to any other school if and when required, or to graduate and be admitted to leading universities anywhere in the world. To date, over 180 universities globally have offered places to CIS graduates.
A Student-Centric Approach
CIS has a culture of innovation, in academic programming and thinking. Faculty adopt a student-centric approach which ensures that programme development, curriculum and assessment are driven by what is best for children and their learning, across the K-12 spectrum. This student-centricity manifests itself in pioneering programmes and learning spaces that simulate the real world, provoke inquiry and investigation, analysis and experimentation, collaboration and communication, and innovation and creativity.
At CIS, students are taught how to think, not what to think. Learning isn’t deskbound. Students are taught to become flexible and critical thinkers, creative in the way that they connect ideas and concepts, collaborative in their thinking and inspirational in their capacity to motivate others. They collaborate, they connect with the community and environment around them, and they search for solutions rather than look for the one ‘right’ answer. They are encouraged to build on their natural curiosity and develop strong communication skills that will enable them to connect with people both on a local and global level.
Instilling a Determination to Act and Achieve
CIS teaches students the value of resilience, giving them the confidence to pursue an idea from inception to completion, as well as providing them with the necessary skills to overcome the barriers they may encounter along the way. At CIS, students are instilled with a sense of drive, purpose and a determination to achieve.
21st Century Success
Today’s students are in a unique position; they are the first generation to face a world where exam results alone no longer dictate success. Success in a global environment more than ever before will require not only the ability to come up with fresh and original ideas, but the focus and dedication to turn those ideas into action.
A STEAM Philosophy that fuels innovation
The CIS STEAM (Science, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Mathematics) philosophy and makerspaces provide project based learning experiences that challenge inquisitive minds, fuel innovative thinking, and create a culture of teamwork and collaboration. STEAM provides students with:
- An engaging interdisciplinary approach that integrates the five areas of science, technology, entrepreneurship, arts and mathematics.
- Innovative and enlightening learning experiences that are transformational, for both students and educators.
- An inquiry-based approach that helps develop critical thinking skills and creativity, spurring innovation and invention. Students are empowered to take control of their own learning, preparing them to be problem solvers in the real world.
Bilingual Chinese-English Programme
CIS offers a pioneering bilingual programme in Chinese and English to students aged 4 to 7. Key features of this programme include:
- A bilingual curriculum fully aligned to the IB Primary Years Programme, promoting intercultural understanding and inquiry based learning.
- Two fully qualified teachers per class - one native Chinese speaker and one native English speaker.
- Equal exposure to both languages.
CIS has two campuses on the island, Lakeside in the west, and Tanjong Katong in the east. Both campuses are conveniently located near public transport and are a short drive from most expat communities - both in the centre of Singapore and in the East Coast area.

Sitting inconspicuously among the characteristic and colourful shophouses of the old Straits settlement on top of Emerald Hill, Chatsworth International School(Orchard) occupies a former Peranakan mansion and its grounds.
Accessible to Orchard Road by its front entrance on Cairnhill Road, and backing on to the old-world feel of Emerald Hill at the rear, Chatsworth blends elements of both into a School with a unique community of 689 students and over 70 educators and support staff.
The present day mansion, which is now our entirely self-contained School campus, was constructed in the late nineteenth century as the family home of the influential Dr. Lim Boon Keng. Between the years of 1925 and 1994, it housed the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School.
Among its student and staff body, this campus today plays host to an IB World School with over 44 nationalities, characterised by a distinctively international flavour. Its location occupies both an important place in the past as an educational landmark of colonial-era Singapore as well as a place today where it sits seamlessly within the modern heart of this tropical City State.
Dulwich College (Singapore), for 2 to 15 years old, is academically selective and offers an accelerated curriculum that is diverse and intellectually rigorous.

We offer an enriched three year IGCSE syllabus which will best prepare our students for the challenges of the more advances pre-University Diploma programmes.

As an internationally minded school we believe in the importance of our young people acquiring confidence and competence in Languages other than English. We offer a Dual Language programme in English and Mandarin for students from 2 to 7 years of age and daily Chinese classes, streamed according to ability from the age of 7.
We provide a wide variety of learning opportunities in sports, music and creative arts. Our College has a strong tradition of competitive sport. All our students are encouraged to play sport, whether it is competitive or recreational. Music is an integral part of the curriculum up to Year 9 and each student is taught to play an instrument. Exploring the Creative Arts provides a valuable opportunity for students to gain insight into various cultures across time periods and also to develop and demonstrate skills of creativity, collaboration and communication.
Our new state of the art building provides an exceptional standard of facilities for our senior school students featuring science laboratories, art/technology areas, black box theatres, a large dining hall and library; all within a carefully considered environment designed to provide the best possible opportunities for teaching and learning.
In line with our mission of “One College with Many Campuses”, we pride ourselves on being a new type of school, offering a new educational experience to our students across campuses and borders.

At EtonHouse International School we pride ourselves on being a family-oriented school that celebrates individualism, embraces diversity and respects the many cultures and nationalities of our students. And this is reflected in the inclusivity of our curriculum and community.

You’ll see educators who genuinely care about every small win in their classrooms, teachers who know the names of every child in the school, even when they don’t teach them.
Give your child an education with a difference that will last them a lifetime. Visit us and learn more. Visit www.ehis.edu.sg or call us on +65 6346 6922.
Here are just some areas that make EtonHouse International School unique:
It’s all about family
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive family-oriented school with a strong bond to our Parent School Association. And this is reflected in the close relationships we have with the parents of our students. But our family ties go deeper than this, extending even to our student alumni who, until today, come back from time to time for a nostalgic look at the school or to get advice on their further education. And for our present students, the sense of family extends beyond the school grounds as they enthusiastically greet their teachers whenever they encounter them out in public after school hours.
Our pioneering programmes are our strength
We’re known for our languages
As one of the first international schools in Singapore to offer a primary bilingual programme in English and Mandarin, and one of the few schools offering extensive second language programmes in Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi, English as an Additional Language (EAL), as well as Spanish at Secondary level, we are extremely proud of our pioneering language programmes.
We put in vast teaching resources to run time-intensive daily language and cultural programmes designed to complement and support the units of inquiry each student is studying in their English-led lessons. Our unique strength is the ability to customise our second language programmes to meet the individual needs of students in their second language learning.
The language of the future
In today’s digital world, information and communications technology (ICT) is the new pen and paper of the 21st century. Coding and programming are fast becoming the language of the future. Now, more than ever, our students need to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to survive in an increasingly digitalised world. And that’s what we’re doing at EtonHouse through our robust ICT Programme.
Your child will learn all about ICT and the tools they need to use it. Coding. Check. Programming. Check. App development, animation, 3D gaming. Check, check and check. With these digital tools, your child will be able to actively and effectively engage, create, collaborate, communicate and share their perspectives – a skill that will benefit them greatly not only in their education but, more importantly, in their future career. And by educating your child on real-world issues such as cyber bullying and cyber security, we develop them as responsible and ethical digital citizens.
We love to celebrate our differences
With over 50 different nationalities among our family of teachers, students and parents, we truly are a small global community. Part of having such rich diversity means we go to town on our cultural festivals and celebrations, working them into the lesson plans and hosting engaging activities that involve the whole school. Even our parents jump in on the action, volunteering to share their unique customs. And everyone gets into the spirit by decorating the school and attending events in traditional costumes.
EtonHouse International School is an accredited ‘IB PYP World School’ for our Primary Years Programme. Our Secondary School then follows the Cambridge approved International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Programme for students in Years 10 and 11.

Boutique School with Two Educational Approaches (Mainstream & Support) – One Integrated Community!
Students learn differently, and no other International School in Singapore recognises this more than IIS; a hidden gem nestled in the West of Singapore, IIS provides its students the personalised attention and support they need whilst challenging them academically and supported by an Australian based curriculum.
Two educational approaches:
The first boutique International School in Singapore to offer a Mainstream and Support approach for children aged 4 to 16 years old in an inclusive setting. IIS prides itself on inclusivity and acknowledges that the “one size fits all approach,” to learning and teaching is extinct. Students at IIS are integrated in one International community, supporting and enhancing individual talents whilst fostering socially conscientious and tolerant human beings.
Amongst the jungle of International Schools in Singapore, class sizes rarely fall below 18. IIS provides an environment where small class sizes (approximately 10 students per class) and an enviable teacher to student ratio are tantamount to the success of the students.
The IIS curriculum is based on the foundations of the New South Wales curriculum with students sitting the NAPLAN assessments in the relevant year groups as advised by the NSWBOSTES (New South Wales Board of Studies, Teaching & Educational Standards).
Core socio-emotional curriculum:
Encouraging students to ‘think out of the box,’ believe in themselves, take risks and enjoy every small success they are a part of is as important as academic success at IIS.
IIS incorporates a well-equipped Support Department, with Counsellors/Psychologists and Therapists offering students relevant therapy and support in areas of individual need.

Invictus Private School sets itself apart from by providing a holistic curriculum and skilled educators at an affordable price. It is a private co-educational day school that will open in August 2016 with Grade 1 and Grade 2 students.
Invictus (which is Latin for "Unconquerable") has generated much interest from the expat community. For a comparable standard of learning, the school will only charge an estimated S$15,000 per year (without application fees) for their first intake.
Founding Principal, Mary Ann Davies - who spent 20 years in education and was in school leadership positions for 15 years, will run the school. She has had 4 headships (2 primary schools in UK, British International School in Shanghai and Qatar International School in Doha).
Invictus will implement the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which is widely recognized - used in 1,800 schools in over 90 countries. There will also be rigorous Mandarin, English, and Mathematics lessons, to prepare the students to be global citizens of tomorrow.
To future-proof the students, co-curricular activities will include entrepreneurship and coding to take on the ever-changing digital world. Invictus is created by Sugar Ventures, Singapore's leading tech venture builder; hence the school will instill an enterprising spirit with applicable programming skills.
Instead of purchasing and maintaining expensive amenities, Invictus will leverage on Singapore's excellent infrastructure. Located conveniently near to Delta Swimming Complex, Bukit Merah Library, Bukit Merah Community Centre and more, students will have ample opportunities to learn through play. The school will also engage a variety of external extra curricular vendors to help the children learn through play.
Invictus Private School will challenge the way people see private schools by focusing on learning. The school will prove that providing a quality education at practical fees is feasible and sorely lacking in the market.
Melbourne Specialist International School (MSIS) offers a unique and innovative model for teaching students with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Students range from age 3 to 18.

The class teachers and specialist teachers work closely with our therapy staff to plan and deliver the most appropriate programme for each student.

Also the specialist teachers, such as the art, music, dance, drama and aquatics staff will be teaching communication, numeracy and living skills using their specialised skills and knowledge.
Additionally, the school supports students with a range of services delivered by its therapy team. This includes qualified members of staff such as an Art Therapist, Music Therapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist with access to a Physiotherapist and Drama Therapist when needed.
The Individual Learning Programs (ILP) are set by a team including the family and provide a coordinated approach toward learning in order to address the educational, social, and emotional needs of our students.
MSIS is a collaboration between Port Phillip Specialist School (PPSS) in Melbourne, Australia and White Lodge Pte Ltd Singapore.
