Council of international schools

British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park is a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), a community committed to providing high-quality international education.

An Achievement of High Quality and Rigor

Within CIS membership are schools that have achieved a mark of high quality and rigour - CIS International Accreditation. This recognition signifies that the school has completed a comprehensive self-study and international peer review as part of a continuous improvement process focusing on standards and indicators that promote the development of student knowledge, skills, attributes, and actions aligned with the CIS Definition of Global Citizenship.

Colleges and universities worldwide acknowledge that a CIS Accredited School meets internationally-agreed and recognized standards and develops global citizens with the qualities and skills that they are seeking in students.

What does it mean to be a CIS accredited school?

As part of the CIS community, BISC Lincoln Parkshares some of the same ideals that make our organizations so unrivaled:

Together, we enhance our students' learning experiences by:

  • Expanding our students' minds and perspectives.
  • Challenging our students at everything they do.
  • Promoting a values-based education that defines global leadership.
  • Embracing diversity to welcome ideas, cultures, and connections from all parts of the world.

CIS International Accreditation is recognized by the National Association of Independent Schools (USA) and many governmental and non-governmental agencies around the world.
