About Us

The Canadian International School is currently in its 25th year of operation. Initially established in 1990 as a university preparatory day school, the school was called Canadian Overseas College, but subsequently changed its name to the Canadian International School. In its first year, the school opened with a population of only 6 high school students and 6 staff members.

Today, the Canadian International School has two campuses - the Lakeside campus in Singapore's West (pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12), and the Tanjong Katong campus in the East (pre-Kindergarten to Grade 6). Over 3,000 students from over 70 nations are experiencing the joy that comes from a Canadian International School education.

Our Programmes

Opportunities to engage in service and to practise leadership skills, as a preparation for life beyond school, are provided across all CIS age groups. Students are encouraged to try new things, to develop empathy and an understanding of the world's peoples, and to embrace responsibility.

The two arms of service at CIS are: local service, where students connect with members of the Singapore community; and global service, where they work with regional NGOs and partner organisations, actively addressing the issues they care about. Service activities vary in terms of time commitment. They can be one-time events, year-long or multi-year commitments.
