As a parent, it’s normal to start thinking ahead about your child’s education ahead of time. You want to give them enough preparation to ensure they get the best opportunities that would lead them to a bright future.

A way to do this is to find out what is the best school system to put your child in. Nowadays, more and more parents are choosing the Canadian school system over others—and it can be done right here in Malaysia. Read on to learn more about its advantages: 

#1 The Canadian school system is highly ranked in the world

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)—a global research done by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to evaluate the quality, equity and efficiency of school systems—has consistently ranked Canada higher than other English-speaking countries like the United Kingdom, USA and Australia.

#2 The teachers are fully certified

The vast majority of teachers teaching the Canadian school system are licensed by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), a professional body that governs and regulates the Ontario teaching profession.

Members have to graduate with two bachelor’s degrees (one of which has to be in education) and are trained by Canadian universities to be effective teachers. They also undergo regular and continuous professional development to keep their license valid.

#3 Semester-based programmes to prepare students for university

The Canadian school curriculum is taught through semester-based programmes, which enables students to get used to the semester-based structure of tertiary education.

For example, at Sunway International School, high school students are taught four subjects per semester, which allows longer contact hours between student and teacher in class. Teachers are also able to delve deeper into each topic.

#4 The opportunity to participate in community service

Community service plays a big part in the Canadian teaching syllabus. Students are required to complete 40 hours of community service from Grades 9 to 12. This instils important values and respect for others while giving back to the society.

#5 It’s not just about exams

Acknowledging that every student is unique, the Ontario curriculum focuses on a student’s continuous development. Students are given coursework throughout the semester rather than the standard exams, and their progress is consistently evaluated.

If you’re interested in enrolling your child into the Canadian school system, you can do it right here in Malaysia!

Sunway International School (SIS) located in Sunway City is the only school in Malaysia licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education to grant credits that will lead to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma—which is a globally-recognised secondary high school qualification.

Besides utilising the same syllabus, the school also undergoes a yearly inspection by the Ontario Ministry of Education to ensure quality of delivery and assessment.

SIS also focuses on developing holistic, well-rounded individuals using key qualities known as the 6Cs (Character Education, Citizenship, Communication, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Creativity) in its lessons.
