Calgary, AB | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
We feel that CFIS goes above and beyond the basic curriculum specified for each grade year, and does so in a way that fosters student accountability and independence, preparing them for what lies ahead. We have not identified any weaknesses as of yet, but the school eschews an atmosphere of positivity and professionalism. The use of emerging technology and the continual modernization of facilities is evident, and there is a demonstration of continued improvement in all areas. We have two children at CFIS, one in grade 5 and another in grade 1, and we have been very impressed with how the teachers communicate the objectives for the year, setting expectations and helping the parents understand the focus point of learning. We have no doubt our children will be set up to succeed in post secondary education following their time at CFIS.
