Canadian International School Bangalore

The Canadian International School, Bangalore offers a Montessori-based Preschool and Kindergarten programme, the Cambridge Primary curriculum in grades 1-5, Lower Cambridge/IGCSE in grades 6-10, and the IB Diploma Programme in grades 11 and 12. Our students represent 40+ nationalities and teachers represent 27 nationalities. 

Our programmes are highly respected worldwide and lead to admissions to foremost universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Korea, Europe and Singapore. We offer university admissions assistance and a range of other services to our students. Diplomas are granted by the International Baccalaureate Organization and are fully recognized the world over as well as by the Association of Indian Universities. Students who require English language support are admitted to the ESL programme.

A substantial co-curricular sporting and activities programme is also offered. In addition, our secondary school students participate in community service projects. 

Classes are taught by highly qualified staff (mainly from Canada, US, UK and India) led by an internationally-diverse school leadership team. For effective learning and teaching our classes will normally not exceed 24 students. Academic performance is continually evaluated and formal admission testing based on generic mathematical and English skills is in place for students wishing to apply to CIS. 

We expect of our students a positive work ethic, self-discipline, respect for self and others and the motivation to achieve – at all times, in all endeavors – their personal best; indeed, our curriculum demands this. 

CIS provides an in-house, school-wide, ongoing professional development programme in which all teachers participate in order to develop their pedagogical skills.
