Our Vision and Mission
CIS is committed to educating champions of a just and sustainable world. Our dynamic and inquiry-led learning programme is bolstered by our core values of compassion, integrity, creativity, inclusion and growth, providing our students with a unique opportunity to explore their boldest dreams.
In 2020 we developed a strategic plan as a guide to the direction and development of our school for the next five years, with four major goals:
You can view the specific initiatives against each of these goals, and follow our progress here.
Inclusion and Diversity at CIS
CIS is home to over 900 students from more than 70 countries. Walk the halls of our campus and you’ll hear a multitude of languages spoken in harmony. Multiculturalism and diversity are core components of our community here at CIS, and we are committed to building a community that values and raises voices from all walks of life, irrespective of your ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.
It is something that we champion above all else, quite simply we firmly believe that creating an inclusive community that values diversity is critical to preparing students for the challenges and choices they will face in their future lives.
Our commitment to a more just and sustainable world
Sustainability is at the very heart of our DNA here at CIS, and we are committed to an ambitious set of strategic initiatives in support of the the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The UN’s global goals permeate the entire school, both at a curriculum and strategic level, and are central to all the decisions that we make.

We are also proud to be a CHORA 2030 School, an accreditation that is awarded to Danish educational institutions that are committed to working strategically and ambitiously in support of the UN’s global goals.
When students go on to other things after their time here, we don’t tell them to go break a leg.
We tell them to go and break with conventions.
Our goal is to nurture students who are champions of diversity. This means we place enormous value on enabling students to understand one another’s feelings and respond supportively.
The world of tomorrow needs people who aren’t afraid to break the mould. We believe our students can be those game changers, which is why we place such emphasis on honesty and integrity both in and outside of the classroom.
Today’s students are facing a world with entirely new challenges. That’s why we constantly strive to perceive the world in new ways, and encourage our students to generate innovative solutions to complex problems.
Diversity is the beating heart of CIS. We create a welcoming environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging and community here, each and every day.
CIS will develop the potential of each of our students by offering a stimulating, motivating environment, and giving each learner the opportunity to progress every day.
