After being pupils for five months at CIS, our three children are leaving one of the most exciting experiences of their lives: taking part in the life of CIS. We are thrilled and proud of them because they have succeeded in so many ways: attending an international school and improving their English as a second language, making new friends in a short period as well as getting good grades in all their school subjects. However, for us as parents, the most important thing is that they have been so happy at CIS. For all of this, we would sincerely like to congratulate all the teachers and staff for their warm welcome and the excellent work they did with the children during this time. We are sure that they will miss each one of their new friends and teachers. They learned a lot about facing challenges and the CIS community played such an important role in this success.
So far, it has been wonderful and interesting. I have learnt a lot of new things, I am improving my English and have had the opportunity to meet great people that luckily are now my great friends!
...with the excellent teaching of this school. The teachers are always trying to make classes fun and different. Also the students at CIS are very friendly and kind and they really made me feel welcome.
...I was a little bit shy and nervous, but all the people where nice and made me feel comfortable. I think the teachers do their job very well.
It is very welcoming and everyone respects each other. My favourite lesson is Art because of the variety of activities we do.
...is everybody knows everybody. The teachers are helpful and supportive. My English is improving. There are many differences to my school in Sao Paulo but I am very happy here.
with a strong ethos of accepting and celebrating different cultures and diversity, and promoting tolerance and acceptance of each individual.
We loved the friendly feel and courtesy of the pupils and we enjoyed being in a school where laughter is encouraged and allowed, but is backed up with a good work ethic.
...has recently had to look around other schools to decide on her senior school place and where she would like to go next year. There was no comparison. She stated plainly that she loves this school; she loves her teachers and does not want to go anywhere else
...when you know that you’re in a happy, friendly environment. I have plenty of friends so I am never alone.
The school’s educational philosophy and ethos are tangibly inspiring.
...to tell you that I do not think we will ever find a school as wonderful as yours: a great and stimulating working environment, with dedicated and encouraging teachers.
...part of such a unique educational experience, where each and every child and their parents are important.
...and your staff enough for always being there and helping our children to get where they are today.
