International Schools


Canadian International School

Canadian International School

CIS Profile 2017

The Canadian International School (CIS) is a leading international school in Singapore. Founded in 1990, CIS has over 3,000 students from more than 70 nationalities enrolled across two campuses - Lakeside in the west (for students aged 3 to 18 years) and Tanjong Katong in the east (for students aged 3 to 12 years).

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 180 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.

Making Connections
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, Entrepreneurship, 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, entrepreneurship, 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.

Bilingual Chinese-English Programme
CIS offers a pioneering bilingual programme in Chinese and English to students aged 4 to 7. Key features of this programme include:

  • A bilingual curriculum fully aligned to the IB Primary Years Programme, promoting intercultural understanding and inquiry based learning.
  • Two fully qualified teachers per class - one native Chinese speaker and one native English speaker.
  • Equal exposure to both languages.

Campuses
CIS has two campuses on the island, Lakeside in the west, and Tanjong Katong in the east. Both campuses are conveniently located near public transport and are a short drive from most expat communities - both in the centre of Singapore and in the East Coast area.

Chatsworth International School at Emerald Hill Road

Chatsworth International School at Emerald Hill Road

Sitting inconspicuously among the characteristic and colourful shophouses of the old Straits settlement on top of Emerald Hill, Chatsworth International School(Orchard) occupies a former Peranakan mansion and its grounds.

Accessible to Orchard Road by its front entrance on Cairnhill Road, and backing on to the old-world feel of Emerald Hill at the rear, Chatsworth blends elements of both into a School with a unique community of 689 students and over 70 educators and support staff.

The present day mansion, which is now our entirely self-contained School campus, was constructed in the late nineteenth century as the family home of the influential Dr. Lim Boon Keng. Between the years of 1925 and 1994, it housed the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School.

Among its student and staff body, this campus today plays host to an IB World School with over 44 nationalities, characterised by a distinctively international flavour. Its location occupies both an important place in the past as an educational landmark of colonial-era Singapore as well as a place today where it sits seamlessly within the modern heart of this tropical City State.

EtonHouse International School

EtonHouse International School

EtonHouse International School

At EtonHouse International School we pride ourselves on being a family-oriented school that celebrates individualism, embraces diversity and respects the many cultures and nationalities of our students. And this is reflected in the inclusivity of our curriculum and community.

When you enter our school what will immediately strike you is the buzz of the place. Happy, engaged children, risk takers who are confident in expressing their opinions and feelings. You’ll see educators who genuinely care about every small win in their classrooms, teachers who know the names of every child in the school, even when they don’t teach them.

Give your child an education with a difference that will last them a lifetime. Visit us and learn more. Visit www.ehis.edu.sg or call us on +65 6346 6922.

Here are just some areas that make EtonHouse International School unique:

It’s all about family
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive family-oriented school with a strong bond to our Parent School Association. And this is reflected in the close relationships we have with the parents of our students. But our family ties go deeper than this, extending even to our student alumni who, until today, come back from time to time for a nostalgic look at the school or to get advice on their further education. And for our present students, the sense of family extends beyond the school grounds as they enthusiastically greet their teachers whenever they encounter them out in public after school hours.

Our pioneering programmes are our strength
We’re known for our languages
As one of the first international schools in Singapore to offer a primary bilingual programme in English and Mandarin, and one of the few schools offering extensive second language programmes in Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi, English as an Additional Language (EAL), as well as Spanish at Secondary level, we are extremely proud of our pioneering language programmes.

We put in vast teaching resources to run time-intensive daily language and cultural programmes designed to complement and support the units of inquiry each student is studying in their English-led lessons. Our unique strength is the ability to customise our second language programmes to meet the individual needs of students in their second language learning.

The language of the future
In today’s digital world, information and communications technology (ICT) is the new pen and paper of the 21st century. Coding and programming are fast becoming the language of the future. Now, more than ever, our students need to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to survive in an increasingly digitalised world. And that’s what we’re doing at EtonHouse through our robust ICT Programme.

Your child will learn all about ICT and the tools they need to use it. Coding. Check. Programming. Check. App development, animation, 3D gaming. Check, check and check. With these digital tools, your child will be able to actively and effectively engage, create, collaborate, communicate and share their perspectives – a skill that will benefit them greatly not only in their education but, more importantly, in their future career. And by educating your child on real-world issues such as cyber bullying and cyber security, we develop them as responsible and ethical digital citizens.

EtonHouse International School

We love to celebrate our differences
With over 50 different nationalities among our family of teachers, students and parents, we truly are a small global community. Part of having such rich diversity means we go to town on our cultural festivals and celebrations, working them into the lesson plans and hosting engaging activities that involve the whole school. Even our parents jump in on the action, volunteering to share their unique customs. And everyone gets into the spirit by decorating the school and attending events in traditional costumes.

Curriculum
EtonHouse International School is an accredited ‘IB PYP World School’ for our Primary Years Programme. Our Secondary School then follows the Cambridge approved International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Programme for students in Years 10 and 11.

Integrated International School (IIS)

Integrated International School (IIS)

Boutique School with Two Educational Approaches (Mainstream & Support) – One Integrated Community!

Students learn differently, and no other International School in Singapore recognises this more than IIS; a hidden gem nestled in the West of Singapore, IIS provides its students the personalised attention and support they need whilst challenging them academically and supported by an Australian based curriculum.

Two educational approaches:
The first boutique International School in Singapore to offer a Mainstream and Support approach for children aged 4 to 16 years old in an inclusive setting. IIS prides itself on inclusivity and acknowledges that the “one size fits all approach,” to learning and teaching is extinct. Students at IIS are integrated in one International community, supporting and enhancing individual talents whilst fostering socially conscientious and tolerant human beings.

Intimacy:
Amongst the jungle of International Schools in Singapore, class sizes rarely fall below 18. IIS provides an environment where small class sizes (approximately 10 students per class) and an enviable teacher to student ratio are tantamount to the success of the students.

Academic curriculum:
The IIS curriculum is based on the foundations of the New South Wales curriculum with students sitting the NAPLAN assessments in the relevant year groups as advised by the NSWBOSTES (New South Wales Board of Studies, Teaching & Educational Standards).

Core socio-emotional curriculum:
Encouraging students to ‘think out of the box,’ believe in themselves, take risks and enjoy every small success they are a part of is as important as academic success at IIS.

Support Department:
IIS incorporates a well-equipped Support Department, with Counsellors/Psychologists and Therapists offering students relevant therapy and support in areas of individual need.

Melbourne Specialist International School

Melbourne Specialist International School (MSIS) offers a unique and innovative model for teaching students with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Students range from age 3 to 18.

MSIS has an innovative arts-based curriculum that uses dance, drama, music and visual art as a means of engaging students. This is called the Visual and Performing Arts Programme (VPA). Arts is used to develop skills in areas such as communication (English), numeracy (Mathematics) and living skills (Personal and Interpersonal learning). The class teachers and specialist teachers work closely with our therapy staff to plan and deliver the most appropriate programme for each student.

Using a VPA approach means that the class teachers are teaching communication, numeracy and living skills using either; dance, drama, music and visual art. Also the specialist teachers, such as the art, music, dance, drama and aquatics staff will be teaching communication, numeracy and living skills using their specialised skills and knowledge.

Additionally, the school supports students with a range of services delivered by its therapy team. This includes qualified members of staff such as an Art Therapist, Music Therapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist with access to a Physiotherapist and Drama Therapist when needed.

The Individual Learning Programs (ILP) are set by a team including the family and provide a coordinated approach toward learning in order to address the educational, social, and emotional needs of our students.

MSIS is a collaboration between Port Phillip Specialist School (PPSS) in Melbourne, Australia and White Lodge Pte Ltd Singapore. MSIS will inspire those who want to re-model how special education can be taught in Singapore and the collaboration with PPSS illustrates how effective the entire community can be in making global change happen.

Young children at EtonHouse are respected as competent thinkers and communicators who are offered many opportunities to engage with a wide range of materials and resources to extend and challenge their thinking. Our curriculum invites children to explore, discover, hypothesise, predict, problem solve, construct and document their deepening understandings of the world in which we live.

We encourage young children to explore their environment and express themselves using multiple languages which may include speaking, singing, movement, drawing, painting, writing, building and designing, collage, dramatic play, and music. Topics of study for project work may be captured from the children’s current competencies, skills, ideas and theories, through family and community events as well as the best known interests of children (enduring childhood themes e.g. relationships, roles and responsibilities; identity).

As a returning Singaporean expatriate you could also apply directly to the principal of the school to which you wish your children to be admitted.

Rejoining your Child’s Former School

Students who are planning to go overseas but wish to rejoin their former schools upon their return to Singapore can apply for Leave of Absence.

The Leave of Absence scheme was introduced in 1999 assist in the re-entry of students who accompany their parents in their overseas postings. It is open to children who are Singapore citizens or Permanent Residents. Your child/ children would be allowed to apply for Leave of Absence from a primary school until the end of Primary 6, from a secondary school till the end of Secondary 4 or 5 (whichever is applicable) or a pre-university institution till the end of JC 2 or Pre-U 3 (whichever is applicable).

Once the student is granted the Leave of Absence, a placement in the school would be made available to him when he returns, provided that the Leave of Absence is renewed and payment is made yearly.

Admission / Re-admission to Primary Schools

There are two categories, as follows:

  • Singaporean expatriates with children who are due to enter Primary 1 should register their child/ children while overseas during the Primary 1 Registration Exercise opened July/August every year.
  • Once the child/ children has been allocated a place, parents may apply for Leave of Absence for their child if they are not due to return when school starts in the new academic year.

Parents can obtain such forms at the Singapore embassies, High Commissions, Singapore clubs overseas and MOE website.

Other Primary Levels

If parents require assistance with the school placement, they may submit the “Application form for school placement” 6 months in advance. The purpose of this application is to facilitate the PPS to process requests in time for the children to start school as soon as possible upon their return to Singapore.

Otherwise, parents could also approach the school of their choice directly to seek admission for their child/ children.

PPS will try to find the pupil a place in the school of choice. Should there be no allocation is the preferred school, it will do its best to place the pupil in other schools.

Admission / Re-admission to Secondary Schools and Junior Colleges

As returning students may possibly re-enter Singapore schools at different times of the school year, principals have the right to decide on a case-by-case basis if the pupils should be exempted from any examinations and put on a promotion to the next level.

  • Such admission will be subjected to the provision of documentary proof that the student has completed the previous level, and subjected to the student meeting the age criteria for that level.
  • Students seeking admission to a pre-university course should produce their GCE ‘O’ Level results transcripts or certificate or its equivalent for assessment of eligibility.
  • Admission is also dependent on the availability of vacancy in the school or the preferred junior college and MOE does not guarantee students in the placement of their preferred schools and institutions.

There are two categories of admission :

Admission to Top Secondary Schools or Junior Colleges

  • Returning Singapore citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents who would like to apply for the admission to any of the top 30 secondary schools and junior colleges will have to sit for a Centralised Qualifying Test (CQT). A list of the schools with this requirement can be found in the MOE website.
  • To qualify it also depends on the student’s performance in the CQT and the availability of placement in the school or junior college. On top of that, the school or junior college may want the applicant to sit for its own assessment tests in English, Mathematics and the Mother Tongue Language. The tests are to ascertain the student’s eligibility for the level, stream and class to which the student is requesting for entry.
  • Successful applicants will receive a Letter of Eligibility which then permit them to look for vacancies in the preferred top schools. Unsuccessful applicants could approach schools or junior colleges that are not in the top 30 list. This Letter of Eligibility will be sent out within 7 days after the student has sat for the test.
  • All applications for the test have to reach MOE at least 7 days in advance of the preferred test date. The application form can be found at its website. Applicants can complete the form and test fee and then have them submitted - with a copy of the student’s Birth Certificate or not, Identity Card, Entry Permit/Re-entry Permit to the MOE Customer Service Centre.

Admission to Other Secondary Schools or Junior Colleges

  • Students seeking entry to schools or junior colleges that are not in the top 30 list need not sit for CQT. They can approach these schools.
  • Otherwise, for admission to a secondary school, the parent or guardian could apply through PPS for school placement if they require any assistance.

Immersion Programmes

Provisions could be arranged for students return to Singapore during their holidays to attend classes in Singapore schools. This immersion program is to ease their re-entry into the school system.
