Our coaches and fitness professionals at CIS combine sports training with fitness and fun.

We foster an encouraging atmosphere that will both introduce children to sports and games, as well as challenge experienced athletes who already have the fundamentals down. All activities are geared to motivate and build self-esteem within a welcoming environment. Our program offers a balance of consistency and variety, so children know what to expect each day but remain interested and excited. Our approach is flexible, with the instructors able to vary the daily program in response to your child’s interests.

Student Council

The importance and benefits of a student council.

A Student Council is an elected body of students representing the voice of the student of its school. Student Council are integral part of a school. Student council often take charge of running and organizing events within the school throughout the year.

In terms of the structure of Student Council, students who want to be in leadership positions of any kind in their life, can learn a lot by being a student leader and joining the Student Council.
The student Council links the students and the school administration. Successfully linking the students to the school administration, is crucial in enriching education outside the classroom. These links allow students to play and active role in their own education. Student leadership provides opportunities for students to get involved and to learn skills that can be transferred to the workplace or community.
A Student Council brings enthusiasm and fun to the school while providing a voice for the students on all issues that affect them. It is vital to make Student Council fun and productive. It should be a place where all students feel comfortable to voice their opinions, but also a place where a final decision can be reached and acted upon.

Where Are They Now?

We feel it’s important for our students and their families to understand where our graduates end up, and to hear the stories of how CIS has prepared them for their futures. Below are a number of our alumni and their stories.

Aysha Sirajudeen (2015)

B.Tech (Computer Graphics), Bangkok University International College

The ICT program at CIS helped me with the rudimentary basics for my eventual major. Religious studies helped me to become a better Muslim. The specified Quran and Islamic electives really helped me in that aspect. Above all, CIS taught me about core values that stay with me today: punctuality, moral behavior, compassion, and respect.
Muhammad Sharjeel (2014)

Engineering, Assumption University, Bangkok

I took science courses at CIS and so far all of it has helped me tremendously in my first year. I gained a lot more than just knowledge from CIS. The amazing atmosphere where everyone knows each other and is helpful in the times of need is the best thing about CIS. There is a lot about this school that I miss.
Ocean Ahmed (2013)

Chemical Engineering, SIIT, Thammasat University,

The material (especially that of my favourite subject, chemistry) taught at CIS provided me a solid foundation for upcoming challenges in my academic career. Moreover, my homeroom instructor, Mr. Siddhart, instructed me in manners and discipline, which I feel is certainly worthy of recognition.
Muhammad Mahad Nadeem (2011)

Medicine at Jilin University, Changchun, China.

I still remember our batch being the first one at CIS to do the IGCSE and having less time to prepare for them. The amount of dedication that was shown by the teachers and the leadership was amazing. Seeing them work like that taught me how to work under tremendous pressure. Socially I can’t complain at all, as to date, most of my close friends are from my days at CIS, so you can imagine how close we were, are and will be.
Karen Azizah (2011)

Bachelor of Economics, Trisakti School of Management

CIS certainly prepared me! For that's where I got my basics for my accounting background that helped me get through my first year of university. The struggle of a Science student to learn about Accounting would have been too much if not for the basics I got from CIS. Moreover, Mr. Siddhart, who became our class teacher helped to shape us all a lot, especially in being punctual. Such memories! In addition, CIS provides a good environment for kids to grow and be better.
Saba Agrawal (2011)

Accounting, Assumption University

● CIS has taught me alot. Academically and socially. Though small at the time, we were like a family. It is hard to find a school, where everyone knows everyone and truly treat one another with caring and respect. In academics, CIS has the best teachers ever. Without their patience and kindness to prepare is for IGCSE, I wouldn't be where i am right now.
