Welcome to Canadian International School Tokyo (CIS). At CIS, our commitment is to empower students to become effective, lifelong learners: confident in their skills and principled in their actions. CIS is a fully accreditated Canadian school in Japan through a formal connection with the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (P.E.I).
Both the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) provide external feedback for educators at CIS Tokyo. Each organization requires a set of enriched educational and governance standards. Schools holding these accreditations offer an international education of the highest quality.
Education today is more personalized and student-centred. Students must have the opportunity to learn and show what they learned in different ways. The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a transdisciplinary curriculum that allows students to ask questions, inquire, explore and celebrate their success. A planned approach to the development of student attitudes further helps to support individualized learning.
Using accredited Canadian and international curricula, CIS Tokyo ensures that our students receive a strong knowledge base rooted in academic excellence and a growth mindset. Our Canadian curriculum, reinforced by international standards, ensures that our school continues to provide enrichment for all students.
CIS is a nurturing environment, and the development of an understanding of global citizenship is paramount at our school. All initiatives, whether classroom or school-wide, will focus on student learning and the enjoyment of life-long education. At CIS, students feel safe, not only physically secure but safe enough to express their ideas, consider, reflect, care, suggest and congratulate.
Finally, at Canadian International School Tokyo, we will all work together to ensure that this fantastic community of learners collaborates in a supportive learning environment inclusive of all students. I wish all our students from kindergarten to our 2023 Grade 12 graduates a happy, safe and successful academic year.
