We are a CIS member School
The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a membership community committed to high quality international education. Headquartered at Netherlands, this community includes more than 1300 institutions – 733 schools and 620 colleges and universities representing 116 countries. As a global non profit membership organization, CIS provides services to primary and secondary schools and higher education institutions that share these ideals:
- a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens and
- a commitment to high quality international education.
To achieve this goal, member schools must infuse their programmes and offerings with international and intercultural perspective so that students can move forward with the attitude and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them. All CIS schools steers their practices with the following four drives:
- PURPOSE & DIRECTION – the implementation of the mission, vision and values, including the development of global citizenship, as defined by the school.
- STUDENT LEARNING – the nature and quality of learning and the resulting progress made by the students.
- STUDENT WELL-BEING – their protection, safety, security and overall wellness.
- THE DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP – as defined by the CIS mission and definition of global citizenship.
Health & Safety Committee:
This committee ensures the socio-emotional wellbeing of the students and staff. It works with various external expertises who educate the faculties with necessary orientation on child safety.
We create safe and supportive environment where the physical, emotional integrity and safety of each member is a matter of high priority. Health camps are conducted for the Children and the staff to ensure their well being. We concentrate on the child’s safety in all spheres- classroom, campus and outbound campus.
Global Citizenship Committee (GCC):
We believe that being a global citizen goes well beyond simply traveling around the globe or living an expatriate lifestyle; it refers to a more holistic view of the world, understanding the commonalities we share and recognizing our responsibility to help our fellow man , safeguard our planet’s future and march towards sustainable development.
Digital Citizenship Committee (GCC)
DCC fosters the use of innovative technologies to enhance teaching and learning, and to empower students to become content creators. We edify the students with the importance and the value of Digital Citizenship and Intellectual Property Rights in the effective use of technology. More awareness on Cyber safety is given to the children. We create a positive school culture that supports the safe and responsible use of technology. Proposal on ICT club and the Robotics are also in progress.
QMIS with the objective on continuous improvement and to bench mark its practices to global standards ,works collaboratively with CIS since 2016 and shapes international education by connecting ideas, cultures, and educators from every corner of the world. This evaluates all aspects of QMIS’s educational strategies to discover new ways to live our goals and develop interculturally.
As the first phase, upon conforming its standards with the expectations set by CIS over eight domains (excluding the standards for boarding) , QMIS received its membership in the year 2017 and is now geared up with the next phase of CIS accreditation process. With this membership accolade, QMIS becomes one among 25 schools in India and 4 schools in Tamilnadu and the only CBSE school in the world to get this premier laurel.
Since its collaboration with CIS, QMIS has started relooking all its practices through the lens of “Global citizenship and Student well being”. To emphasize them strongly, exclusive working group has been created to spear head the above domains.
