About CIS Amman


CIS Amman is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 10 candidate school for the PYP (Primary Years Programme),MYP (Middle Years Programme) and the DP (Diploma Programme). Our school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. We are committed to achieve the continuum of the program by 2020, when the DP (Diploma Programme) is introduced and implemented.
For further information about the IB and its programmes, please visit the official IB Website.

CIS provides students with the opportunity to receive an integrated and holistic education which enables them to develop both English and Arabic languages, in an inquiry based and student-centered learning environment.

Our curricula promote and implement effective and viable approaches which focus on the development of literacy and numeracy skills. 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.

With our upcoming implementation of the IB PYP and IB MYP programmes, we believe significant shift in mindset and benefits will entail. The IB programme offers high quality education which supports the development of knowledgeable and inquiring students. The IB programme is renowned for preparing students to cope with demanding workloads and time management challenges; we are eager to nurture and instill these attitudes and behaviors among our students and school community.

In alignment with the IB learner profile we believe showing empathy, compassion and respect in our school will make a significant difference in the lives of others, especially our respective and prospective students. The IB education also motivates students to be risk-takers promoting independent work in a cooperative manner, which ultimately enables them to explore new and innovative methods and solutions.

Through the standards and practices of the IB programme, we aim at supporting our students to take actions on complex problems, with the intention of channeling our students’ efforts and involvement to become responsible members in local, national and global communities.

We aspire to be a bridge of opportunity between our students and their future by:

  • Promoting active citizenry.
  • Emphasizing the development of the whole child.
  • Being proud of their identity, heritage and Arabic culture.
