Principal's Message

Welcome to Clifford International School! 


Our school is committed to "Face the Modernization, Face the World, Face the Future" as our operating principles.


I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I graduated from the University Of Manitoba and began my teaching career in the city of Winnipeg in 1983. I also lived in Hong Kong for 11 years and worked as a high school administrator. Prior to coming to China I was also a principal at a K-8 school in Canada.


Another year is upon us and I’m very happy to be returning in the role as high school principal. This will be my fourth year working at Clifford International School. I’m also looking forward to working together with our experienced  administration team and our talented and dedicated group of international educators at CIS.  


Clifford School has been affiliated with the Canadian Province of Manitoba for 17 years. This affiliation has developed into a strong and trustworthy partnership. The Manitoba curriculum has helped prepare many students in the Clifford Estates community for post-secondary education and the work-force. CIS has also provided a quality international educational experience to many students from Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, India, Korea, and Russia. To learn more about the K-12 International and Manitoba curriculum please visit the Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning website at 


Our graduates study abroad at many universities throughout the world, including Canada, Asia, Europe, Hong Kong, and the United States. 


I encourage parents to contact our guidance office and book an appointment with our guidance counsellor, and begin the university application process with their child.


Together we can help your child reach their full potential and grow into a capable and confident person.
