CIS - A Hub for Global Education Excellence!
In the bustling city of Bangalore, home to a myriad of educational institutions, the Canadian International School (CIS) shines as a beacon of global education. As the first IB Diploma Program (IBDP) School in Bangalore, CIS consistently ranks among the top IB schools in Bangalore. CIS students are empowered through this world-class education to become globally- minded contributors and leaders.
Embracing the IBDP Curriculum
As our students enter the IBDP, they choose among six discipline groups that include languages, social sciences, sciences, math, and the arts along with the Core IB Program courses, Theory of Knowledge course, Extended Essay, and the CAS program.
The IBDP curriculum is celebrated worldwide for its comprehensive approach to education, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional, and social growth and is recognized as among the most rigorous international programs worldwide.
Advantages of IB Education
The advantages of an IBDP education contribute to students' well-rounded development and global outlook:
Conceptual Understanding: Through a focus on conceptual ideas, students become adept at transferring ideas and approaches across disciplines. This prepares students to work across a range of fields with deep understanding on the interconnected nature of all things.
Comprehensive Skill Development: The IBDP curriculum develops a broad range of skills among students, from critical thinking and research abilities to communication and intercultural competence. This comprehensive approach prepares them to be independent thinkers and doers on the complex global stage.
Global Outlook: The IBDP offers students a global perspective. Through subjects like Global Politics and the Theory of Knowledge, our students learn to navigate global challenges with sensitivity and open-mindedness, and fosters a deep sense of understanding and empathy.
- Academic Rigor: The IBDP is universally accepted as one of the highest academic standardized programs for high school completion worldwide. Through its well-rounded structure, it ensures that students are well-prepared for the demands of higher education and professional lives. CIS Graduates consistently gain admission to prestigious universities both in India and worldwide.
- Service-Oriented Ethos: CAS (Creativity/Activity/Service) is an essential component of the program. In the IBDP, students participate in an IB Retreat, where they gain insights into the program's structure, develop lifelong relationships with each other, and understand the expectations for the next two years, as they engage in team building and leadership activities. In the first year of the IBDP, students also embark on a CAS excursion, offering them an opportunity to work on a week-long project either in India or abroad.
The CAS program aligns with our three dimensions of learning: Conceptual Understanding, Competency, and Character Development. Our students have the opportunity to connect their subject-based learning with their CAS experiences, and vice versa. This integration brings learning to the real world and deepens understanding of subject knowledge while offering diverse perspectives and rich approaches to their subjects.
