Would you like to sponsor your country's flag?
Flags are a representation of belonging to a community or nation and that individuals that make up this community share the same beliefs, goals, and traditions. Carolina International School (CIS) is comprised of students and families from the various countries of the world. We value diversity, which means that we recognize differences between people and acknowledge that these differences are a valued asset. There are several different countries that are represented among our families and community at CIS.
Multicultural education is an important component of valuing diversity. It respects diversity while teaching our students to become effective and participating members of the culture they represent, by bringing these values, awareness, and thoughts to our larger community.
Our program respects individuality while promoting respect for others. It emphasizes the contributions of the various groups that make up the population of the world, that are represented at CIS. It emphasizes the importance of our community members sharing their stories and learning from the stories of others. This approach seeks to increase diversity awareness, sensitivities, and skills so that young people are prepared to take positive action with their peers. By building positive peer influence, young people begin to change negative attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors about diversity.
Your family can help lead our international initiatives by becoming a flag sponsor. For $500 you can sponsor a flag for the 2015-2016 school year. This sponsorship includes:
- Name recognition on the CIS website
- Name displayed next to the flag.
