The CIS vision and mission clearly articulate our goal of being an institution that offers an extraordinary and well-rounded educational programme. A rigorous and engaging curriculum and a wide breadth of learning opportunities facilitate exceptional achievements, allowing each student to reach their full potential.
At CIS, we believe that every child has the right to graduate with an IB diploma, and our admissions policy reflects this. Our focus is always on the individual, and how we can support them to achieve their potential - that is the true value of a CIS education.
For the academic high achiever, we provide everything needed to get 38+. For the student who has a particular passion that they want to follow, we provide the guidance, opportunities and support needed to help them succeed. For students who might need a little extra help, a committed team is there to ensure they realise their success.
Class of 2017 IB Diploma results
While we celebrate our Class of 2017 IB Diploma results, our students are much more than the mere sum of their IB scores. They are emerging scientists, artists, researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs. Their time with us was a remarkably productive and rewarding partnership. We look forward to seeing where their next set of challenges and opportunities will take them.

2016/2017 Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) results
While we track our students’ progress with a range of different assessments, CIS uses Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), developed by Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), as an externally referenced assessment tool to benchmark learning growth.
MAP provides comprehensive data on student achievement and growth, over time, in Reading and Mathematics. Achievement in MAP is indicated by a RIT score, and it is expected that RIT scores will increase over time.
