The High School at CIS consists of grades 9 through 12. It is based on an American/International curriculum and is designed to prepare students for graduation and entrance into university/college education. Students must accumulate a specific number of credits in core subjects and in electives in order to graduate. Credit accumulation requires regular attendance and passing marks.
Qualified students in grades 11 and 12 are able to take courses in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. The IB courses prepare students for external exams given around the world in May of each year. Successful performance on these exams can lead to advanced standing in universities and colleges in North America, Europe, and other regions of the world.
CIS promotes an active homeroom/advisor program. Each student is part of a homeroom. The homeroom teacher serves as the student’s advisor. Homeroom teachers, in addition to the counselor, assist students with goal setting, college and university counseling, study skills, service learning, general counseling needs and other purposes when students need to come together as a class. The homeroom teacher is also the key contact for parents and thus provides a means of communication between the home and the school.
