The Core Values at CIS

The Core Values at CIS

Along with conceptual understanding, and developing competencies (skills) across a broad range of content, character development is of equal importance to teaching and learning at Canadian International School (CIS), a top school in Bangalore. Core Values are a fundamental part of the ethos of CIS. In an ever-changing world, we are constantly reminded of the importance of the core values that we practice and encourage within the school on a daily basis.

CIS has 5 core values:

  1. Integrity
    Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. We encourage our students to recognize this value and help them act in ways that are consistent with the values, beliefs, and moral principles we hold.
  2. Inspiration
    Inspiration opens up new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations. Inspiration propels a person from apathy to possibility and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities. At CIS, we teach this value to unlock the unlimited potential of our community.
  3. Joy
    Joy is the feeling of pleasure and happiness. At CIS, Joy is a Core Value that helps the entire community commit to their own happiness. Joy is so contagious that it could be used to transform the world.
  4. Caring
    We share a world with billions of other people and other living things that are different from us. We teach our students to be accepting, tolerant and act with empathy and kindness towards each other and the changing world around us.
  5. Respect 
    Respect as a value is taught and encouraged in students at CIS. The directives to play nicely, share with others, say please, thank you, and you’re welcome, lay the foundation for respectful interactions with others in life. These basics help in creating a community in which each individual is treated with dignity, compassion, and fairness.

    As the Core Values are an important part of the culture at Canadian International School (CIS), we also host our Core Values Show on a quarterly basis. An individual core value is highlighted in each show and is a big hit with our Elementary School students! The celebration of our values further encourages students to exemplify these values through their daily actions. Follow us on Facebook to catch the Core Values Show LIVE!
