Our Programs

Corrales International School (CIS) is a tuition-free, multi-language (English, Spanish, Mandarin) charter school located in Albuquerque. CIS was first authorized through APS in 2007 for 5 years and is currently reauthorized through 2017.

CIS is the first public school in New Mexico to be authorized as an IB World school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). CIS is currently an IB candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate (IB) as IB World Schools can offer any of its academic programs.  These are schools that share a common philosophy–a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that CIS believes is important for our students.

CIS offers the PYP (grades K-5) and the MYP (grades 6-10) as well as a Dual Enrollment Program for 11th and 12th grade students who have successfully completed the Middle Years Programme at CIS.
