larry-thaxter-4Welcome to the Canadian International School of Abu Dhabi (CIS). Our school has established a solid foundation of academic excellence as well as a warm, inclusive environment in which all of our students feel valued and welcome. Our school is accredited by Alberta Education of Canada. The Alberta curriculum is focused on student-centered inquiry learning, which teaches our students to be independent, be critical thinkers and possess skills to cope and adapt in different situations. An Alberta high school diploma is internationally recognized and enables students to competitively apply to universities and jobs all over the world. The school strives to provide instructional programs that motivate our students to become life-long learners and to improve our students’ self-esteem and confidence as they become ethical citizens and leaders in a global society. In addition to our outstanding academic programme, our students enjoy a wealth of extra-curricular activities, clubs and opportunities to demonstrate excellence.
