MYP Welcome 21-22

Dear MYP Parents
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Corrales International School (CIS).
Our MYP (7-10) program begins with interdisciplinary units aligned with the Common Core
Standards of New Mexico.
Students attending 11th and 12th grade will be on the CIS campus until 11:45 A.M. After that,
they will be taking collage level classes at the University Of New Mexico (UNM) or the Central
New Mexico Community College (CNM).
Students in 11th and 12 grades (only) are not required to dress in CIS’ uniforms. However, an
appropriate dress code is required. Our college students are an example for those who will follow
their college steps.
***Thursday July 29th from 5-7 P.M. you and your student can meet CIS faculty.
