We seek children who are well-rounded and have reached age-appropriate milestones cognitively, linguistically, physically, socially and emotionally. Candidates should demonstrate independence and initiative and be able to concentrate and collaborate in a formal setting.
We expect our students to have a strong command of one of the following languages; English, Chinese (Mandarin), or Chinese (Cantonese). While many Reception applicants already speak two languages, doing so is not required. We accept students without a strong knowledge of English and students without a strong knowledge of Chinese (Mandarin) to the Reception programme.
At CIS, we seek to admit a balanced cohort of learners in terms of their language backgrounds, gender, age and other qualities. Successful candidates will demonstrate that they are a good fit for CIS through their application and an observation session. Parents must also understand, appreciate and agree to uphold our school's Mission. CIS very much values the parent-school partnership.
Please explore below to learn more about the application process for the Reception programme. We look forward to receiving your application.
