    About PISA

    Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international assessment program that covers 81 economies worldwide. It aims to evaluate the knowledge and skills of 15-year-old students in reading, mathematics, and science.
    Conducted every three years by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), PISA's goal is to assess students' ability to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems, rather than simply testing their memorization and rote learning abilities.

    An international school accredited by the Alberta curriculum.

    7 Jan 2019
    There are many international schools using the Alberta Curriculum throughout the world, and there is an official accreditation standard to become an Alberta accredited international school.It requires strong leadership, commitment, planning, resources and time. Schools move through four tiers as they proceed through the accreditation process. An Alberta accredited international school must meet certain accreditation requirements covering all aspects of school operation and education quality.

    CISGZ underwent a long accreditation process and finally gained accreditation as a full K-12 school. 

    We did this because of our complete commitment to all of our students, and our desire to ensure that every single student at CIS becomes a global citizen, that they can live all-rounded, fulfilling lives, and that they can contribute to the betterment of themselves, their community and the world.
    In the future, students studying at CISFS will be considered equivalent to being registered in the Canadian education system. 
    Upon enrollment, they will have Canadian student status, and upon successful completion of the high school curriculum and graduation, they will obtain the Alberta High School Diploma, which serves as a strong foundation for CISFS students applying to top-ranked universities worldwide.
