We believe that the basis for a child’s successful development is joy, trust, and encouragement to try new things. We believe that children and young adults need to be challenged to realize their full potential. We believe in listening to each other and working together. We believe in our students. At CIS*, we expect everyone to become active participants in their school’s success. Our students earn the skills and knowledge that define a young person’s life by being curious together, sharing the joy of understanding, and forming genuine relationships within a diverse community. Throughout our continuous curriculum, we give our students time and space to think, try, try again, play, create, and grow.
The name CIS* is inspired by the scientist and humanist Nicolaus Copernicus, who started the Scientific Revolution by placing the Sun rather than the Earth at the center of the universe. His rational and unprejudiced discovery of reality through persistent research and hard work characterize what CIS* stands for.
We have studied and worked as teachers, administrators, and school board members in Europe, China, South America, and the United States. Between us, we have more than 30 years of experience in the international educational field.
We decided to invest our time, energy, and means in this project because of our belief that an excellent education will have the most profound impact on a young person’s future success.
However, we can only realize this school by working with partners and actively involved stakeholders. Join us and become part of this exciting project!
We hope you enjoy discovering CIS* and look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming information sessions. Don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
