We were very pleased to have our first Open House evening at our new CIS International School Saint Petersburg campus. We had over 200 people in attendance. The evening was filled with music, educational presentations, food, socialising, childcare for young children, and tours of the new facilities. Thank you to all of our current families and friends of CIS who attended the event. We really appreciated your positive feedback. We are listening to your desires to improve CIS Saint Petersburg, as this is our number one goal as well.
Congratulations to the CIS teachers and staff for creating such a special reception for our school community. It was an enjoyable evening filled with smiles and good conversations. We were also very proud of our CIS Student Ambassadors who served as greeters and guides to our parents and guests.
We are very excited to move into this large school, as there have been many hours of planning, preparation, and hard work. The new spacious learning-focused classrooms, large assembly, music and sports halls, new educational materials and furniture, will truly enhance not only the atmosphere but the teaching and learning. We are glad that you are part of our school community, and look forward to a bright future with you.

No matter how effective a lesson is, information learnt can be forgotten unless the topic is revisited several times. This is why, at school, we revise topics to check a child has absorbed the information taught.

Normally, when we mention courage, people think of great acts of heroism: such as rescuing people trapped in a burning building; fighting lions, tigers, alligators with your bare hands...
