AIS has a long history of delivering a holistic, rounded education. What makes us truly unique is that we offer a southern hemisphere academic calendar through an Australian curriculum-based global education, combined with a focus on development of the individual as a whole.
A proudly non-selective school, our attention to academic accomplishments as well as the person means every enthusiastic student is welcome. We believe that it is not only intellectual ability that determines an individual’s worth of contribution. Additionally, our focus on Academic Wellbeing means that we “know our students” which supports them in their ambition to be the best version of themselves.
Our student-centered curriculum encompasses the very best teaching and learning methodology. With over 45 nationalities, we use our multicultural environment to deliver a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of international mindedness, supported by our emphasis on all students learning an additional language from Pre-nursery to Year 12, the Arts and physical education, for the development of the whole person.
Our numerous programmes further ensure each child’s potential is realized. Ranging from Learning Support and English as an Additional Language (EAL) to our Positive Education programme, from our Orientation and Buddy System, to our Wellbeing Counsellors, each child’s needs are carefully assessed, and the right amount of assistance applied.
Supporting the Academic Wellbeing of each student relies on understanding an individual’s learning requirements and defining a pathway to best support their learning journey. We do this through the use of an innovative Data Dashboard, with a Predicative Grades tool in upper Secondary which drives teaching and learning for tailored support and more importantly, timely intervention.
In doing so, our academic results are well above world averages, with 27% of our students in 2020 achiving an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of 90+.
The Canadian International School (CIS) is a leading international school in Singapore.

Book a tour to discover more about this wonderful space.
A Global Curriculum
CIS is one of the few international schools in Singapore to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes, from Primary Years through to the Diploma Programme. The CIS curriculum is benchmarked against national curricula globally, allowing students to successfully transition to any other school if and when required, or to graduate and be admitted to leading universities anywhere in the world. To date, over 400 universities globally have offered places to CIS graduates.
A Student-Centric Approach
CIS has a culture of innovation, in academic programming and thinking. Faculty adopt a student-centric approach which ensures that programme development, curriculum and assessment are driven by what is best for children and their learning, across the K-12 spectrum. This student-centricity manifests itself in pioneering programmes and learning spaces that simulate the real world, provoke inquiry and investigation, analysis and experimentation, collaboration and communication, and innovation and creativity.
At CIS, students are taught how to think, not what to think. Learning isn’t deskbound. Students are taught to become flexible and critical thinkers, creative in the way that they connect ideas and concepts, collaborative in their thinking and inspirational in their capacity to motivate others. They collaborate, they connect with the community and environment around them, and they search for solutions rather than look for the one ‘right’ answer. They are encouraged to build on their natural curiosity and develop strong communication skills that will enable them to connect with people both on a local and global level.
Instilling a Determination to Act and Achieve
CIS teaches students the value of resilience, giving them the confidence to pursue an idea from inception to completion, as well as providing them with the necessary skills to overcome the barriers they may encounter along the way. At CIS, students are instilled with a sense of drive, purpose and a determination to achieve.
21st Century Success
Today’s students are in a unique position; they are the first generation to face a world where exam results alone no longer dictate success. Success in a global environment more than ever before will require not only the ability to come up with fresh and original ideas, but the focus and dedication to turn those ideas into action.
A STEAM Philosophy that fuels innovation
The CIS STEAM (Science, Technology, Environmental Studies, Arts and Mathematics) philosophy and makerspaces provide project based learning experiences that challenge inquisitive minds, fuel innovative thinking, and create a culture of teamwork and collaboration. STEAM provides students with:
- An engaging interdisciplinary approach that integrates the five areas of science, technology, environmental studies, arts and mathematics.
- Innovative and enlightening learning experiences that are transformational, for both students and educators.
- • An inquiry-based approach that helps develop critical thinking skills and creativity, spurring innovation and invention. Students are empowered to take control of their own learning, preparing them to be problem solvers in the real world.

We are student-centred and believe that students thrive in a safe community where they are valued for what they can do and not what they cannot do.
The college offers three programmes based on the Victorian F-10 curriculum. The Pathways programme caters to students aged 12 to 16 and offers two learning routes – skills-based or subject-based learning.

More than just a school, the GESS Preschool is a warm and supportive community of diverse learners ranging from 18 months to 5 years of age.
Our View of Your Child
At GESS, we believe that every child is a powerful individual with an innate desire to learn about the world and has the natural potential to explore and develop this understanding in their own ways. We focus our effort on promoting this desire further.
Respectful and Responsive Educators
Our Preschool educators are qualified teachers from all around the world. They are dedicated to supporting your child as they make sense of the world around them, develop a self-identity and grow as a learner and a global citizen. Our educators listen to children to identify their interests and needs, and respond with prompts, activities and suggestions for learner-intiated exploration.
Learning Spaces That Bring the World to Your Child
Our learning spaces provide a safe and comfortable environment for young children to uninhibitedly open themselves up to learning. The spaces are designed to help children with cognitive, physical and creative growth and include sensory gardens, light ateliers, art rooms, cooking spaces, outdoor playgrounds and so much more.
Each child receives instruction in two languages (English and German) at varying points of the day. This helps them become powerful communicators in an increasingly globalising world.
A Robust Curriculum
Our Preschool curriculum is built on the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). Your child will be exposed to an inquiry-based learning environment with focus on language, mathematical, scientific, artistic, and physical disciplines. Through inquiry, children will construct a developmentally appropriate understanding of their world.
“Before our eldest started at GESS, going to school was a nightmare for all of us…As soon as he joined GESS, all of this stopped. His teachers understood and respected his nature. They gave him the time and space he needed, even if that meant that he sat in the reading corner while everyone else was engaged in a group activity. They met with me regularly, always reassuring me that they had Luca’s best interests in mind.” – Leila Boukarim, Mother of 2 children who attended the GESS Preschool

International School Curricula
When Singaporeans hear the words 'international school', two things typically spring to mind—firstly, that these schools are primarily attended by the children of foreign nationals who are currently living and working in the country, and secondly, that these schools charge astronomically high school fees, compared to the local institutions.
In reality, however, an international school is not necessarily defined by either. Instead, such schools are places of learning where students either follow a national curriculum that is different from the country where the school is located, or an international curriculum that is widely accepted around the world. While such schools mainly cater to the children of expatriates working in the country, some local students also enrol in these institutions for various reasons. For example, they may find that the curriculum offered by the international school is better suited to their learning needs or more in line with their plans to further their studies abroad. They may even wish to attend international schools as these may teach in different language mediums.
While each curriculum has its own advantages, some remain more commonly taught than others. In Singapore’s international schools, there are three main curricula which use English as their main medium of instruction.
English National CurriculumLike many Commonwealth countries, Singapore's public education system was initially modelled on the British system. However, owing to differences between the two education systems that have developed over the years, the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Ordinary Level examinations was officially de-linked from the British GCSE examinations in 2006. Today, the GCE O-Level examinations in Singapore are recognised as the equivalent of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and taken by the majority of secondary school students in public schools. Secondary students in international schools which follow the English curriculum, on the other hand, are more likely sit for the IGCSE which is a qualification provided by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Students between 16 and 18 go on to take the CIE’s GCE Advanced Subsidiary (AS) or Advanced (A) Levels.
US-style curriculaUnlike many other countries which have a national curriculum in place, education policy varies widely in America from state to state. International schools which offer a 'US-style' or 'US-based' curricula tend to focus on a generalised education rather than a specialised one, allowing students the freedom to learn from multiple disciplines before they enter higher education. At these schools, students will graduate with a high school diploma if they meet certain criteria. Some international schools encourage students to take Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses while they’re studying to get their high school diploma, as these college-level courses can help them to prepare for higher education. Universities in America may even provide additional course credit or admit students based on the strength of their results in these courses.
International Baccalaureate (IB)In Singapore, international schools offer three out the four available IB programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and Diploma Programme (IBDP). In general, an IB education prepares students to be world citizens and offers a holistic education for students between the ages of 3 and 19. In terms of assessment, students in the PYP and MYP complete tests carried out internally by the teachers at the school, while students graduate from the IBDP with a diploma that is widely accepted internationally at institutions of higher learning.
