We're proud of the reputation we’ve established for the range and rigour of our academic offerings, the outstanding quality of our school facilities, and perhaps most importantly the care and attention we provide to each of our students - from nursery to grade 12.
Our academically rigorous programme is complemented by a broad range of languages, fine arts, athletic and service learning opportunities designed to develop balance, deepen connections and to uncover true learning potential.
Our pedagogical approach focuses on developing the skill-sets our students need to be successful in the 21st century. We haven’t replaced the 3 Rs. Instead we’ve embedded them within the context of the 4 Cs: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration.
Our teachers encourage intellectual curiosity, foster creativity and inspire the pursuit of excellence in ways that define what a world-class, future-oriented education should be. They couple high expectations for success with relentless care and support - hallmarks of outstanding instructional practice.
By doing this, our students become critical thinkers. They are global citizens equipped with the knowledge, skills, and expertise necessary to gain acceptance at the best colleges and universities in the world and to excel in the next set of challenges and opportunities that await them.
I encourage you to visit and experience CIS for yourself. Walk through our hallways and talk with our students and you will begin to appreciate their unique insights, talents and perspectives. I’m confident that you’ll be as impressed as I am by their respect and generosity, as well as their intellectual curiosity and concern for this world they’ll one day help to shape and lead.
I look forward to meeting you.
Pete Corcoran Head of School
