CIS Message from the Principal

Principal
The essence of a worthwhile education is that it should inspire students to question what they already know, motivate them to want to know more and encourage them to be the best they can be as learners and as individuals. At Canadian International School, teachers and administrators make every effort to so inspire one another and their students.
 
In addition to a broad, challenging curriculum from the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, CIS also offers the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years programme in the elementary section of the school and a wide range of Advanced Placement courses to its grade 12 students. All students receive regular instruction in music, art and physical education, and Japanese language and culture are taught from grade 1 to grade 12. The curriculum is enhanced by extra-curricular activities, field trips, community service, concerts and assemblies, and student council membership. Students in grades 3 to 12 participate in one overnight trip per year.
 
CIS is accredited by the Prince Edward Island Department of Education and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and is a member of the Japan Council of International Schools (JCIS) and EARCOS (East Asia Regional Council of Schools). It is also recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Education. Our graduates are currently studying at universities in the Canada, Japan, the United States, Korea, Italy and the Netherlands.
 
I invite you to consider CIS for your child’s education, and welcome you to visit us for a personal information session and a tour of the facilities.
