We value punctuality, honesty, creativity, kindness, independence, empathy, trust, humour, and tolerance.


We show respect for ourselves, other people, our environment, school property, and individual property.


CIS Russia recognises the importance of communication. We encourage and support effective communication between all members of the school community.

Positive Behaviour Management

We use positive behaviour management, model good behaviour, use a reward system, use sanctions sparingly, support each other and are kind and polite.
