CIS believes that the primary purpose of a school is to guide the child in the discovery of themselves and their world.... to identify and nurture their talents. Just as every seed contains the future tree, each child is born with infinite potential. CIS sees children as seeds to be nurtured - here the teacher is a gardener who helps to bring out the potential already present in the child. CIS is the best possible environment for children to grow, to blossom and to evolve.

They value add in making policy decisions as well as help in the implementation and review processes.
Documents required at the time of application/admission
Admission to CIS is open to all students, whether a foreign national or one of Indian nationality. As CIS maintains a very good teacher to student ratio (approximately 1:10, one of the best in the world), class sizes are restricted. Preference is given to expatriates, foreign passport holders, and non-resident Indians, in that order.
Our academic year is from June to May. The threshold admissions are at the Pre-Nursery Class eligible for three-year olds. To maintain the unique character of CIS, certain numbers of seats are kept reserved for admissions to various classes throughout the year.
