CIS is continually engaged in the project of re-imagining learning to better meet the needs of this generation. Our school is designed to help children create the future they want -- to set important goals and develop everything they need to achieve them. To realize these aims, we embrace a few simple truths...
Community service/service learning at CIS has many parts, but just one goal: to build a caring community at our school. Children are taught very early here to look out for one another and to care about the world in which we live. As they get older, CIS students are given opportunities to participate in community activities that stretch their understanding about the world and about each other.
Students engage in visual arts, performing arts, and art through technology. Throughout the school year, a variety of concerts, plays and art shows are put on for the school community to see how talented our students are and to enjoy the beauty of these talents. Students from Nursery all the way to grade 12 have the opportunity to fully indulge in the arts through areas such as singing, drawing, playing instruments, acting, painting, photography, and so much more.
