About Council of International Schools (CIS)
The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a membership community working collaboratively to shape international education through professional services to schools, higher education institutes and individuals that share these ideals:
- a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens; and
- a commitment to high quality international education.
To achieve this goal, our members must infuse their programmes and offerings with international and intercultural perspective so that students can move forward with the attitudes and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them. Primary and secondary school members must further commit to undertaking an ongoing external quality assurance process to enhance student learning.
The CIS community includes more than 725 schools and 525 colleges and universities representing 110 countries.
