behalf of CIS, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the Canadian International School of Guangzhou (CIS). We were all very delighted to see you here on campus. I hope you discovered, what we have discovered in our years here: that you have entered a lively, challenging, diverse, and warm community.

01:To all our new parents


We look forward to getting to know the exceptional young people you have raised, and to helping provide a rich array of opportunities for them to learn, to grow, to discover who they are, and how they want to make a difference in the world.

02To our new students


Welcome! Welcome to an intellectual and exciting adventure. Thank you for choosing to join for yourself an education that will open new worlds and new possibilities for yourself. As you meet with your teachers to talk about your interests and aspirations, we encourage you to go forth in a spirit of exploration and adventure. Try new things, be a lifelong learner and take in all that you can, for tomorrow, you will be our leaders.

03:A Spirit of Inquiry to 

Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow


CIS’ incredibly talented faculty will be your guides and allies in your exploration. They are your greatest resource, and will challenge you, guide you, and open doors to new possibilities. This culture of inquiry is the culture into which you are entering. You have gotten here in part by becoming excellent at answering questions; we’re now asking you to learn to ask questions and explore possible answers.



You have come to CIS, where we all learn today to lead tomorrow. When you step outside of your homeroom, not only will you discover a campus that is teeming with activities – student organizations, ASA’s, athletics, events, performances and more – you will also find a community that cares about you. Here at CIS, WeCARE, and we care about building strong and supportive relationships with your families. You are all partners, and together, we commit to making CIS the best that it has ever been.

04:An International Community,

Promoting International-mindedness

CIS offers an immense array of opportunities to create a truly global education, by, first, getting to know—really know—all your fellow students. Look around: the world is here. We want you to know that the entire CIS community is here to support, sustain, and encourage you as you commit to study here. We could not be more privileged to welcome you into this vibrant and safe learning community. It is you who make us what we are, and we look forward to the fresh ideas and energy you bring to our campus. We speak for the entire faculty, staff, and student community of CIS in saying we are so happy you have made the decision to join us here at CIS.


Welcome once again!
