Message from the Superintendent of Capital International Schools
Monday, September 14th 2020
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the start of the academic school year, 2020/2021! On behalf of the Board of Directors and all staff members, I would like to express my pleasure and gratitude that you are a part of our Capital International Schools (CIS) community. The start of a new school year is always an exciting time, not only for students, but for CIS families and staff as well.
Capital International Schools is committed to prepare well-rounded students, who will be equipped with the essential 21st century skills and knowledge to excel in the future, as a result of their choices. The school pro-motes a climate of trust and respect amongst all stakeholders. All human, financial and technical resources are geared to foster an environment that is conducive to a productive learning experience.
As a Superintendent, it is my role to help all stakeholders develop sufficient knowledge needed for a school-wide, continuous improvement plan in order to be able to make informed decisions. Ownership is a vital part of collaboration; all stakeholders need to believe they have a unique role in the successful operation of the school. For CIS, our stakeholders are the students, teachers, administrators, parents and community members.
I am extremely proud of our teachers, staff, and students. Capital International Schools’ staff have always gone beyond expectations, as we expect the highest standards. The effort that our schools demonstrated over the past years has been tremendous. However, the road is still quite long, as we continue to prepare international-ly-minded students for the future. Our vision remains the same, “empowering all students to become success-ful future leaders.”
Every year our staff renew their commitment to unlocking the potential of all students and help them be suc-cessful in their future. I, as well, feel a renewed sense of pride, confidence and excitement for the start of this school year. Please rest assured that every staff member is working tirelessly to meet the needs of each and every CIS student. As students, parents, and teachers work together, we will support one another during this new and challenging phase of hybrid learning. Our bonds will become stronger and we aim to provide a posi-tive experience for all community members.
