By providing a rigorous Chinese and English academic program in a fun and supportive environment, CIS gives children the confidence, scholastic preparation, and cognitive development they need to succeed in the 21st century. The benefits of CIS are not only academic; students are also part of a diverse and multilingual community which provides them with the opportunity to see the world through new lenses and to gain a better understanding of themselves and of the world.
