CIS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all who work and learn with us. All applicants must be willing to undergo rigorous child protection screening, including checks with past employers listed and not listed on your resume. CIS offers students an opportunity to develop through a diverse and challenging curriculum and a wide range of activities. Students are given ownership of the learning process and are encouraged to actively participate in their own education by setting personal goals and practicing on-going self-evaluation. Our inquiry- based programmes and activities encourage students to discover their interests and strengths. All of this is done in a safe, caring and supportive school environment that fosters positive attitudes and allows students to challenge themselves and be risk-takers, without the fear of being judged.
