cis prepares your teen for college and beyond
The upper school offers an educational program that nurtures the intellectual, emotional, physical, social, and artistic development of each student. The curriculum is designed by the faculty and based on the skills and content that a graduate is expected to possess as well as Common Core Standards and/or national standards in specific content areas. It is also integrated and aligned within departments and across school divisions, with an emphasis on promoting depth of understanding rather than a superficial breadth of topics.
Rigorous academics are the cornerstone of the CIS program. As a college preparatory school, CIS is committed to offering courses that challenge each student, provide instruction, and practice and promote mastery in foundational knowledge and skills across the curriculum.
