The canadian international school of guangzhou

The Canadian International School of Guangzhou (CIS) has one goal – to provide a Canadian accredited world-class education from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12.

CIS follows an Alberta-based curriculum, the first fully-accredited Alberta school in China to graduate students qualified for top Canadian and world-class universities. CIS meets the high quality standards and needs of international expatriate families living in the Guangzhou area.

Alberta’s education system is recognized internationally as one of the best learning systems in the English-speaking world. Alberta students have placed among the top academic performers in all five cycles of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) held since 2000.

CIS had moved to a brand new campus with state-of-the-art facilities in June 2018. The new campus has capacity for 1000 students and boarding facilities.
