Welcome to Crescent International School (CIS) - a school which celebrates youth rather than stifling it.
We often point to the achievements of CIS alumni – an extraordinary group of bridge builders, entrepreneurs and public servants. For many, their life’s work can be traced back to strong roots here at CIS. Their stories can be linked to teachers who encouraged them, peers who applauded them, failures from which they rebounded and endless opportunities presented to them here at school.
Our commitment to communication, leadership, information technology and international awareness ensures that all our students are well equipped to succeed in an increasingly pluralist, complex and competitive adult world. The Twenty First Century makes ever-greater demands for the qualities and values instilled by an education at CIS.
The academic program at CIS fosters excellence in all disciplines. Faculty members guide students in mastering skills, acquiring knowledge, and thinking critically, creatively and independently. The school strives to help young people achieve their potential not only intellectually, but also artistically, athletically, and morally, so that they may lead responsible and fulfilling lives.
Academic excellence is expressed in our unusually broad and deep curriculum. Teachers meet students where they are, then push them further than they ever thought possible.
Through teaching of the highest calibre, our students are encouraged to think for themselves, challenge conventional orthodoxies and pursue their own enthusiasms. They rejoice in the differences that exist between them – intellectually, in sporting prowess and in artistic and creative achievements.
CIS students and faculty share a calling – to constantly motivate themselves and take on challenges together!
The most important aspect of CIS – what ultimately inspired me to return home and pursue my father’s dream - is the shared commitment to high principles and to continuous learning and innovation. CIS is a place of tradition and strongly held values, and also a place that never rests on its laurels.
As you explore what makes us unique, I encourage you to consider how you might fit into our dynamic community. I hope that you will take the time to learn about this remarkable school – and that you will consider joining us at CIS.
