What Our Staff Say

"I really enjoy working at CIS. I knew from the start when I was being interviewed that this was where I wanted to be. The way the Principal talked to me about the facilities, staff and students, made me eager to start working there. Once I started working at CIS, I was warmly welcomed into the CIS family. We have a great time together every day, and I plan on staying here for a very long time, no doubt about it."
