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.

CIS Newsletter April 9, 2021

It was a very successful week at CIS. We were able to bring students back safely and continue to serve our students at home. Our students were excited and happy to be back at school or to see their classmates and have more interaction with them. Thank you to our students, parents, teachers, and staff for helping make this a success.

A couple items:

*Please label all of your child’s things. That way we can get them back to them when we find them. (we find a lot of things)

*Pick up and drop off:

Pick Up and Drop Off procedures

Morning Drop-off 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
1. During morning drop-off parents may only park outside of parking lot.
2. Parents may use the student drop-off entering through
Wilshire Ave heading East only.
3. Parents CAN NOT enter the drop-off area if they are heading
West on Wilshire Ave. No Left Turns into the parking lot.
4. Parents using the drop-off must exit onto S. Pan American
(access road)
5. Please have your students ready to exit the car when you
enter the drop-off lane.
6. It is important that the drop-off lane moves continuously with
very brief stops. If you stop short of pulling up in the drop off
lane it backs up everyone else.
7. Teachers will be at the drop-off area to ensure students
arriving between 7:30-7:45 a.m. wait in the designated area.
At 7:45 students are let into the building by grade.
8. Students arriving after there class has left their designated
area can go directly to the back door for entry into the school.
Students should go directly to class.

Afternoon Pick-up 2:30 – 2:45 and Wednesdays 12:30 – 12:45.
1. Same rules as above except: There are two pick up lanes. One
is to the right against the curb and to the left along the solid
white line. The middle lane is used for exit after students are
picked up and the left or right lane is not clear in front of you.
It is important that the pick-up lane moves continuously.

Please do not exit your car. Teachers and staff will assist in getting your students to your vehicle.
Please stay off your cell phone while picking up students. Go slow in our lot.
