MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
On behalf of the staff at Chengdu Concordia International School (CCIS)l, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
- Attends school every week and ready for the learning experience.
- Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
- Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
- Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
- Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
Here at CCIS we are focused on the Common Core Standards and with a focus on Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening in English. Students also receive a very high quality of education in Math, Science, and History. Here at CCIS we have many extra activities throughout the day and in the evening. Our school day extends into evening and provides further opportunities for our students to gain over a year’s growth in their academics. Our smaller class sizes allows our teachers to focus on our students needs in a more individualized manner than traditional schools. Our classes are student-centered and thus our students actively participate in the learning process. These aspects, when combined with our focus on critical thinking, reflective writing and Project Based Learning (PBL) ensure that our students will have the necessary skills and interests to enjoy life-long learning upon graduation. Even though our focus is on American Studies we integrate the Chinese Curriculum to make our students Global Learners.
We look forward to answering any questions you may have and look forward to seeing you on our campus. Please select “Contact Us” to make an appointment for a campus tour and/or to speak to myself or one of our Admission staff members.
