Jes­sica (Grade 12) and Mark (Grade 10) have at­tended CIS Lake­side since Oc­to­ber 2013. Our ex­pe­ri­ence at the school has been good. The chil­dren like the school and their class­mates and teach­ers very much. There’s a wide va­ri­ety of per­form­ing arts and ath­letic pro­grammes to join. The cam­pus is new, mod­ern and of­fers the lat­est technology. Ev­ery floor has study pods that pro­vide stu­dents with a great at­mos­phere for group study and so­cial­is­ing. I’ve also been an ac­tive mem­ber of the PTA from al­most the be­gin­ning, help­ing to bring the par­ent com­mu­nity closer and or­gan­is­ing activities for par­ents, the fac­ulty and stu­dents.

The chil­dren came from a full IB School in Mu­nich and were only look­ing at full IB schools in Sin­ga­pore. The mid­dle school prin­ci­pal at Bavar­ian In­ter­na­tional School in Mu­nich had once worked at CIS in Sin­ga­pore and rec­om­mended it to us. After vis­it­ing CIS, we felt very wel­come. The school was a good fit for our chil­dren, both in aca­demics and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar activities.

We would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend CIS to other fam­i­lies. Our kids were wel­comed by the other stu­dents right away, even though they started in the mid­dle of the year. The ad­min­is­tra­tion and fac­ulty are very ap­proach­able. One fac­ulty mem­ber I would like to men­tion is Kather­ine Ross, the Mid­dle Years Pro­gramme (MYP) co­or­di­na­tor and my daugh­ter’s class ad­vi­sor. She has been the “go-to per­son” for my chil­dren as well as us par­ents. She is one of the spe­cial peo­ple that make our ex­pe­ri­ence at CIS very en­joy­able. An­other thing we like is SMART Time, one pe­riod of per­sonal time after lunch, which can be used by stu­dents to meet teach­ers, join clubs, study or
