Learning at CIS is a transformative process that leads to conceptual understanding, demonstration of competencies through application, and character development as seen through the CIS Core Values.
In 2019, teachers, students, and parents came together to co-create our Definition of Learning. We believe everything we learn in life can nest in our 3Cs- Conceptual Understanding, Competencies, and Character Development.
CIS is not about obtaining the best marks but about getting students to be the best they can be. We seek to develop students as individuals who achieve their full potential. The progression from Elementary to Middle School curriculum is smooth.
Our Leadership Team is representative of our diverse community. We encourage open communication and feedback to better understand how we can all get a little bit better at what we do to Nurture, Challenge and Empower our students.
CIS is one of the only truly accredited international schools in Bangalore with dual accreditation from US (NEASC) and European (CoIS) accrediting bodies. Our deep pool of international affiliations amplifies what we do in our classrooms and enriches our faculty’s professional growth.
