CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTANCE TO CIS

Academic Skills:

CIS is a school which challenges students to meet the highest standards and expects each student to learn to their maximum potential. Based on previous school transcripts and reports, applicants must show their motivation to achieve success and meet the high academic standards of CIS. CIS begins at the preschool level of 18 months of age and offers a full education from preschool to grade 6, and eventually up to grade 12. Our two school campuses in Bassac Garden and on Diamond Island are now accepting registrations from preschool to grade 6.

Social Skills:

CIS is a learning community bound together by adherence to the principles of respect, responsibility and honesty. As such, CIS accepts only students whose past record demonstrates a clear commitment to these principles or whose parents demonstrate that their child can and will meet those standards.

Physical or Learning Disabilities:

CIS accepts students with specific mild learning disabilities and with physical disabilities that do not require additional support and who show a willingness to learn and to succeed. Nevertheless, CIS cannot accept students whose physical or learning disability is judged by our academic staff to be such that we cannot effectively educate the child with available resources.

Class Size:

The target maximum class size at CIS is 20 students. Qualified Foreign and Khmer Teacher Aides, will ensure a student/adult ratio that supports the best learning environment is guaranteed.

Waiting Lists:

A waiting list for accepted students will be constructed when space is not readily available. Every effort will be made to accommodate each student registration. A waiting list deposit will be required.
