Welcome to the Canadian International School

The Canadian International School is a school that has great potential and ambitions. Here at CIS we endeavor to nurture a generation of students who will be able to embrace pluralism in all its forms and accept others regardless of their race, color, religion or ethnic origins. Following God’s verse in the Koran “O mankind! We created male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! The noblest of you in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is knower, Aware.

Dear students,

Keep your roots deep in your soil, let it feed on your civilization and heritage while your branches fly all over the universe breathing its breeze. Learning and mastering your mother tongue language, the Arabic, together with the civic education and religion is the fertile soil that will help you stay deep and steady in your land, raise your awareness of your history, learn from the experiences of your ancestors, consolidate your appreciation of your civilization and work hard towards preserving your culture and heritage.

Learning the other languages and sciences are good tools that help you get acquainted with the other cultures. They are also the modern world requirements that help you sail and discover other civilizations and benefit from their scientific discoveries to become effective and positive participants in this small world. Last but not least, let your hearts be open and loving, your minds free and independent and able to judge what you see or hear as there is no absolute truth on this planet.
