Our objective is to foster our students’ skills and learning experiences to better equip them become problem solvers who have a proactive role in their own education and learning growth.
Here at the Canadian International School, we pride ourselves in having a warm and family-oriented atmosphere that promotes effective learning opportunities and global mindedness. We make this a reality by using diversified resources rather than focusing only on textbooks, and making use of a spectrum of intelligences and multi-sensory experiences to tap the different potential of students. We have a passion for excellence and this is our driving force each and every day.
We aim at attaining all-round development according to our students’ own attributes. We have the conviction that all students can learn; therefore, we explore and implement ways of catering for student diversity to attend to all individual’s abilities, learning styles and needs. We recognize and appreciate this mosaic of differences which is reflected in our teaching approaches and interactions with our students.
