High School : 9 - 12

High School 9-12th grade 


CIS High school offers grades nine through twelve a state approved academic program that supports students as they prepare for the life of a 21st Century graduate.  Students earn a minimum of 27 credits. Classes for upper-level school are aligned with NC graduation standards and student interests. Beyond the core subjects of math, science, language arts, and social studies, CIS offers art, theater, band or chorus, foreign language (Spanish or other of choice), Environmental Studies, International Studies, PE/health, and technology. College prep studies include not only seminal knowledge but key habits of discipline that will prepare them for leadership in their future education and respective fields of work. Students at this level learn attitudes that will enable them to be lifelong learners and productive, responsible citizens in a diverse society. We also provide students with instruction on the social and emotional skills necessary to be successful after graduation. The best learning environment is one that encourages cooperation rather than individual competition. The school counselors collaborate with the parents and the teachers to ensure that each child is receiving the best emotional support possible. By connecting home and school students build an added sense of confidence and support. Highlights about the high school program: Smaller community.  We have about 200 students in grades 9 -12. Highly qualified teachers who strive to meet the needs of the diverse learners. Community partnerships with local community colleges. Leadership opportunities with National Honor Society, Tri-M, Red Cross, and Interact Club. We also have sports teams in, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and baseball. The world is our family!
