In our experience, having the kids in CFIS is not simply "sending" them to school, but rather immersing our family in a community environment that fosters learning and whole child growth. We have developed a fond appreciation for the teachers, parents, and children of the school. There are always opportunities to volunteer and be a part of the activities both in and after school. Our children love the school because of the culture of the individuals that work and attend. There are main factors of the school life that foster value of self. Our students get the opportunity to develop their independence and learning in a safe and comfortable environment. The school uniforms, class structure with group tables, whole school involvement in musicals and plays, group eating in the cafeteria, all help with the community sprit.
