Our History

CISS was founded through the foresight and partnership with the Liaoning Government, Government of Canada, the Province of New Brunswick,and the chairman of Canadian AKD International Education Inc.,Dr. Francis Pang, with the vision to educate and embrace the whole child.

CISS is committed to cultivating self-confident and self-reliant global citizens and leaders through an exceptional education, instilling in young people a love and joy of learning, an ability to think independently, and the confidence to take risks in pursuing their dreams and goals.

CISS is an Authorized International Baccalaureate® (IB) Continuum World School.

IBO programmes do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. At CISS we strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. With the combination of our Canadian Curriculum and IB programme framework we can operate effectively with national curricula for students of all ages.

The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • incorporate quality practice from research and our global community of schools
  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
  • develop multilingual students.

Our school campus on No.301 Hui Shan Road of Shenyang, China, is a place where students can learn in a nurturing and safe environment. A full out-doors track and field, playground, in-door gym, and outdoor courts for basketball, volleyball, soccer and skating rink provide a variety of spaces for sports. Indoors, class- rooms and laboratories are equipped with the latest technology for innovative lessons. Our library, music, art, and dance rooms are fully equipped to add a creative and enriching dimension to each student's learning experience.  

All of our teachers are well qualified to teach at their respective levels, meeting Canadian certification and IBO standards. The faculty, is a wonderful blend of the experienced and the young with the majority of the staff recruited from Canada and many countries. Our guaranteed low student-teacher ratio assures that each child's individual needs can be met. CISS provides a nurturing and supportive community, with a committed faculty that cares deeply about each and every student.
