Welcome to Capital International School. We believe we provide our students with a happy and nurturing place to learn and grow. We pride ourselves on creating an environment where students love coming to school and are challenged to achieve their personal and academic potential. I am confident that this will be one of your child’s most successful years in school
In addition to teaching language arts, math, science and social studies, Capital International School has a strong curriculum in Arabic, French and German. Complementing and integrated within these core subjects are computer science, art, music and P. E. Our instructional methods include “hands-on” and inquiry-based learning, developmentally appropriate lessons, opportunities to work in small groups, and a focus on problem solving and creative thinking. We value teaching the “whole- child” and all programs and curriculum are research based and designed to hold the best interests of our students.
Parents are their child’s first teachers and we consider the family the foundation upon which we build a strong home-school partnership. We invite your participation in your son’s/daughter’s International education. This shared responsibility is the most important work we undertake. For this new academic year to be successful for your child, we must all work together: students, parents, teachers, and other school staff members. This student handbook is designed to help us do this.
