The Canadian International School of Guangzhou is a dynamic place of learning where our students graduate with an Alberta High School Diploma recognized by the leading Universities throughout the world. We are proud to be the first Alberta Accredited International School in China (mainland). Alberta Education curriculum is the strongest curriculum in Canada and consistently ranks in the top 8 of all the countries in the world ( 3rd in Reading, & 5th in Science in 2018). We nurture our students to become confident, compassionate, and enthusiastic about the many opportunities that the world has to offer. They become resilient problem-solvers who see the world with discerning, thoughtful and compassionate eyes. They are true global citizens ready to take on the world and accept any new challenges that the world will throw at them. They learn today, so that they will lead tomorrow.
Our impressive school campus and world leading Alberta curriculum offer our students an unmatched educational choice. Your child will explore a large range of activities and subjects and will be inspired to develop his/her gifts and talents. They COLLABORATE daily with peers and master teachers to achieve their very best. While our students gain valuable knowledge and expertise in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, they also exercise and develop their talents in Art, Music, Drama, and Physical Education to become truly well-rounded students of the world. Our CIS graduates have received offers from some of the top Universities in Canada, the UK, Asia, Australia and the USA. Our recent graduates are now attending Universities ranked in the top 10 in the world!
Our STEAM Idea Lab is a place of imagination and design thinking. Our students and staff INNOVATE in the classrooms and in the Idea Lab to create projects and solve challenges to better navigate our ever-changing world. Students at CIS become critical thinkers as they learn through these inquiry-based projects and experiences. They learn to risk, to fail, and to learn again. They care deeply about their own academic achievements and as a result, they become true life-long learners.
Our students SUCCEED because they care deeply about their learning and their community. They want to be of service to those around them and their classroom lessons become life lessons. We are proud of our CIS Grizzlies as we know they have the stamina and desire to go out and change whatever part of the world in which they will choose to live.
I am humbled to be their Principal and I invite you to see what our school has in store for your child. We offer excellent and rigorous programming for students from age 2 all the way to grade 12 designed to develop ethical, engaged, and entrepreneurial citizens.
