CIS is the first and only school in Vietnam to currently offer the general curriculum of Ontario (Canada) for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Established and developed since 2009, CIS started its journey of education in cooperation with wellknown and respected educational district school boards in Ontario: the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) from 2009 to June 2014, and the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) since July 2014. As the current largest school board in North America, TDSB has a long and profound experience in educating international students in the multicultural environment of Toronto - the center of commerce and finance in Canada.
