It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Chinese International School Manila (CISM) website.  I feel privileged to be part of the CISM community. Together with highly motivated students, a committed Board, enthusiastic teachers and supportive parents, we work in partnership to create a vibrant and dynamic learning community– providing an excellent academic and enriched curriculum, a commitment to exemplary student behaviour, and an environment where every child is valued as an individual .We nurture our students’ talents and abilities, instill them with a sense of ambition, and ensure they feel safe and happy at school.

Through our vision of academic excellence to nurture global citizens, we seek to develop inquisitive, confident, dynamic and successful young people ready for their future lives as tomorrow’s leaders.

We are fully committed to holistic education and believe that our co-curricular activities are as important as our formal curriculum. Our children and young people must develop their natural curiosity and acquire the skills necessary for inquiry and research. They must be able to explore concepts, ideas and issues that have global significance and exercise initiative in applying effective thinking skills, as well as being able to make reasoned, ethical decisions. They must be able to act with honesty and integrity and with a strong sense of justice and fairness. They must take responsibility for their own actions.  Students of international schools must also try to understand and appreciate their own cultures whilst being open to the values and traditions of others. They should show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others and give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. We do our utmost to provide an environment, which offers all these at CISM, and so provide a school culture in which our students thrive.

I trust you will find all the information you require within our website. If not, please contact me personally on

Kind Regards,

Karen Jones
