CDNIS remains committed to its excellent standards

Known in Hong Kong and across Asia for its outstanding educational achievements, excellent facilities and array of extra curricular activities, Canadian International School of Hong Kong nurtures and motivates students to realize their full potential. CDNIS has been recognized as a pioneering institution for over two decades as it continuously pushes boundaries, ensuring its students are prepared for a well-balanced life upon graduation.

Heading the team of world leading educators and administrators is new Head of School Dr. Gregg Maloberti. Well known in Hong Kong as the representative for Lawrenceville for 15 years, Dr. Maloberti joined CDNIS at the start of the current academic year after heading Ross School in New York. He is keen for CDNIS to remain committed to its high standards.

“Despite being at CDNIS for only a few months, I can already say that the school exceeds its reputation. I have had the privilege of working at some of America’s finest schools and can say without a doubt that CDNIS teachers are absolutely first rate and the level of positive parent involvement is phenomenal.”

Defining features of a school
A strong sense of community and an excellent rapport between staff and students are defining features of the school today. The teachers are passionate about their subjects and strive to create an environment that inspires students and gives them the confidence and enthusiasm to achieve their potential in academics, sports, arts and more.

“I believe at the very centre of the learning journey is the relationship between teacher and student. That relationship gives students the confidence to take risks, try new things and trust their instincts,” said Dr. Maloberti.

CDNIS is an International Baccalaureate World School and is one of just a handful of schools in Hong Kong that teaches all three curricula. Since educators, and not government officials, developed the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programme, it is said that the IB curriculum offers a truly international education. And while each of the IB’s programmes has its own rich curriculum, it is the IBDP that is the most well known.

CDNIS attributes much of its success to the experience and exposure of its teaching staff to IB Best Practices globally. Currently, 30 teachers are IB examiners, moderators, workshop leaders, and authorization team members. Not only do CDNIS teachers train other teachers, but they are also part of the process that authorizes a school in its quest to become an IB World School. This gives CDNIS direct access to experts within the IB organization and an unparalleled understanding of how the courses should be taught and examined.

Outstanding faculty, excellent students
The school credits that relationship as one of the main reasons its students have achieved such outstanding results in their International Baccalaureate Diploma final exams. CDNIS has offered the IB Diploma programme since 2010 with a remarkable 99% pass rate and high average points score, leading to a ranking in the top 10% of IB scores worldwide.

Top IB results and gaining admission to the most selective and competitive universities around the world is not the sole focus of the school however, as CDNIS students are outstanding, compassionate leaders of tomorrow who are inspired to make a difference in the world. The school is also focused on ensuring students are admitted into post-secondary institutions and programmes they are passionate about; both in Hong Kong and abroad.

Upper School Principal Mr. Tim Kaiser said, “The impressive range of university and college destinations CDNIS graduates attend reflects the diversity of our student body. But success at CDNIS is more than achieving top grades; it’s about having the ability to be confident in whatever you’re doing.”

“From my experience, parents often choose a school based on outcomes such as test scores and university placement. I know our students’ results will satisfy even the most discerning parent,” Dr. Maloberti said. “Parents should choose CDNIS because they want their children to become active learners in a supportive and engaging community. There is a remarkable energy level and joy that flows in and out of our school everyday and I do not know any parent who would not want their child to be a part of that.”

Opportunities and possibilities are abundant at CDNIS as the school focuses on developing responsible global citizens and leaders for years to come.
