CIS is a multi-national co-educational English Curriculum School, catering for pupils from ages 2½ to age 16 leading to the IGCSE examination. The teaching faculty reflects the international orientation of the school and is adept at integrating students coming from a wide variety of cultural and academic backgrounds. At CIS, we are committed to maintaining a high standard of teaching and learning. CIS is in its seventeenth year of existence, having started operations in September 2003.

The School has enjoyed tremendous growth over the years and presently has 636 students. Its staff body spreads across the Academic, Administrative, Admissions, Human Resources, Accounts and ICT departments.
We are working to be the reference point in education delivery in Nigeria and beyond. Already, our products are speaking for us, as our students continue to bag top flight achievements in both local and international programmes cutting across curricular and extra-curricular activities year in, year out. The school keeps improving on its strategies to nurture and empower its students so that they become transformative global citizens.
