Principal's message

Dr. Sheryl Freeman - CISS Chair of Leadership Team 

All the programs offered through the Canadian International School System- Vietnam are built on the promise that the educational goal is to nurture the whole child - to feed the body and the soul, the head and the heart respecting the values of both intellect and heritage.

Our students are growing up in a developing country where the only constant is change itself. The challenges and opportunities of a global economy and its multi-lingual platform require different kinds of literacies, a myriad of communication skills, a capacity to critically evaluate the onslaught of information, a recognition of the universal human condition, a willingness to continually build empathy and the tenacity to persevere.

At CISS we provide students a solid grounding, roots to withstand the challenges to come, roots that inform their identity, roots that like the relationships students form with staff and with each other, are intertwined. This is the grounding that affords the confidence and independence for flight - wings for flight to post-secondary horizons.

Through our consultancy agreement with the Toronto District School Board, CISS - VIETNAM is able to access Ontario’s world-renowned curriculum. Ontario curriculum champions both literacy and numeracy to ensure that Ontario graduates will ably compete on the world stage. In addition to high academic expectations, the curriculum emphasizes equity and inclusion, global citizenship and healthy living.
