Middle School

The Middle School at CIS encompasses grades 6, 7, and 8. The students in these grades are grouped together for academic and social purposes. Teachers work collaboratively to provide a smooth transition process from elementary to middle school and from middle school to high school. An emphasis is placed on the use of higher order thinking skills, hands-on instructional strategies, continued development of study skills necessary for academic success and participation in extra curricular activities.

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.

Students are academically challenged, and participate in engaging activities that provide a well-rounded and advanced educational experience. In every academic course, rigor and character development are fundamentals of the globally-focused education students receive at CIS."
