Colombo International School

28 Gregory's Rd, Colombo, 7 Sri Lanka

Offering an elementary and secondary English-language program, CIS follows the British academic system. Older students typically prepare for the GCE and GCSE examinations; the school can, however, also provide preparation for the SAT, thereby allowing graduates to enter universities throughout the world. The infant program (ages 3-6) consists of a play group and a kindergarten and offers instruction in music, art and drama. The junior section follows, providing a standard curriculum supplemented by computer, French, Sinhala and Tamil classes. Students in the senior section take a varied three-year curriculum before selecting eight to 11 subjects for study at the GCSE level. Pupils may not proceed to the Sixth Form A-level courses until they have passed the GCE O-, AS- or A-level exams. Extracurricular pursuits consist of cultural activities, athletics, and community service opportunities at hospitals, orphanages and other sites.
