Students on our Koh Pich Campus are required to wear their school-issued uniform every day. CIS has one classroom uniform and one PE uniform for boys and girls.
CIS provides opportunities for students to further develop skills, knowledge, and friendship by offering both cocurricular and extracurricular activities.
