Welcome to the Canadian International School of Beijing. It is my pleasure and privilege to be able to extend a sincere greeting to all students, parents/guardians, faculty and staff.
As we enter our 10th anniversary year we are excited to continue our pursuit of excellence through all learning experiences—both formally and informally. Our new school motto—“Commitment to Excellence” will focus all of our efforts with this pursuit.
Our CISB family is comprised of students and staff representing more than 65 nationalities. It is within this multicultural and multilingual environment that our students experience quality learning while being engaged with rigorous Canadian and International Baccalaureate curriculums. CISB graduates are yearly granted entrance to recognized colleges and universities ranked within the top 100 in the world. We are very proud of their efforts!
Our students and staff are daily engaged in a 21st century education, one that enables them to be involved with the 7 C’s of 21st century learning-creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship; critical thinking; collaboration; communication; character; culture and ethical citizenship and computer and digital technologies.
We take our responsibility very seriously for preparing and equipping our students with the essential knowledge, skills and personal qualities that will enable them to thrive in a constantly changing world. We value our partnership with our parents/guardians and school community and thank them for their support as we journey together to see students reach their maximum potential.
On behalf of our CISB school community, I encourage and invite you to visit our school website or come and visit our beautiful school campus. We would welcome the opportunity to show you CISB in action—students and staff engaged in learning within an encouraging, inspiring, safe, positive and inclusive environment.
I look forward to welcoming each of you during the 2016-2017 school year!
Douglas K. Prescott
Head of School/Superintendent
