Full review by Jaemie McCluskey
CIS has been my work 'home' for the last 7 years. I am so grateful to be part of a such a caring community. When you find a place that feels like home, you count yourself lucky and find it hard to leave. CIS has great facilities, encouraging and caring staff, and most of all the most fun, curious, energetic and diverse students. Students at CIS are exposed to a variety of fun learning opportunities and it would be hard to find another school that shows such care for each student. The balance of academic and personal wellness supports in this school shines. Every student's success is supported and celebrated. Can't wait for another year!

CIS has provided an inclusive and nurturing environment in which my daughter has begun her formal education. My daughter is currently finishing KG2, and I have been very happy with the differentiated, professional, and fun education she's receiving. We are proud to be part of the CIS community. Thank you, CIS!
CIS has been a great place to learn. We have been enrolled at this school for many years and it has grown from strength to strength, without ever losing its caring and supportive family feel. My children have been guided and nurtured both academically and emotionally. They have been encouraged to build life skills such as resilience, pride, determination, empathy, tolerance, team work, and a broader understanding of the world. Although CIS is relatively small in size, a consistent commitment is made to upgrading and updating school facilities. Teachers have regularly given their all to supporting my children and we have found great success here as a family. The Albertan philosophy of learning is excellent and the multi-cultural student cohort and staff body mean we can learn from each other in a caring, safe and positive environment.
My children have always felt welcomed and cared for here. CIS has a great family feel and teachers are committed to supporting students with both academics and social/emotional growth.
Good curriculum, helpful teacher

Welcoming atmosphere, makes you feel like home.
Clear communications between admin team and parents.
Considering student mental health, specially during hard times like Covid crises.
Well rounded curriculum. covers all aspects :)
Even during COVID, the school has a strong community feel. Students welcomed my daughters when we joined the school. Many kids have been there for several years - even their whole school life - even though most of the students are ex-pats, like we are. Teachers have been wonderful and supportive. They communicate frequently about my daughters' progress. When the girls have done really well on an assignment or test, we have received congratulatory emails. Both of my daughters really like the school and say it is better than the public school they came from in Alberta. The school follows the Alberta curriculum, which is a great curriculum whether we return to Canada or not. Highly recommend this school.
