Our Programs


Primary Years Program

Program (PYP) for children aged 3 – 12 nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. The PYP offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding.


Middle Years Program

The IB Middle Years Program (MYP) is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. 


Bilingual Academics

CIS teaches biliteracy using a dual language immersion program (K-6) teaching Spanish and English. Teachers are trained and licensed to teach more than the typical educational program. Through using best practice in language teaching, teachers use strategies and methods to help students acquire the language, whichever they are learning.


Project Lead the Way

PLTW provides teachers with the training, resources, and support to engage students in real-world, hands-on learning opportunities. The Biomedical Science students at CIS explore and find solutions to some of today’s most pressing medical challenges.


Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment allows high school students (11th & 12th grade) to take college classes while they are still enrolled in high school. Student credits earned apply both to their high school diploma requirements and college graduation requisites.



CIS is part of the Albuquerque Public School system and is subject to all APS policies and directives. Any student, regardless of where they reside may attend CIS. With limited enrollment, CIS holds a lottery to determine student placement.
