What CIS offers your child
CIS has a reputation for its principled teaching and learning platform. The school provides a nurturing environment where students are supported to move through developmental stages at their own rate and in their own way. This approach seeks to deliver an education that is inspiring, thought provoking, and relevant.

CIS’ approach allows for real-world learning experiences such as developing analytical thinking and presentation skills, as well as ‘out of the classroom’ endeavours like building art installations, scoring touchdowns on the rugby field and community service.

With a 100% pass rate in the IB programme in 2014 (the worldwide standard in 2013 was 79%), CIS’ robust curriculum approach has seen outstanding results.
