Welcome Note from the Programme Coordinator

Dear Students,

Malcolm X once said, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”.
With this inspirational quote, and on behalf  of the CIS family, I would like to welcome you to what I strongly believe is the most enjoyable, challenging, and rewarding two years of your academic life – two years through which you will be given the chance to choose the subjects that best suit your interests and skills, allowing each learner to explore their full potential.
The DP offers a rigorous academic program and enlightening extra-curricular activities which will equip each individual with the skills and knowledge to be fully prepared for university and to participate in learning experiences that will contribute to self-development leading you to achieve your set goals.
The DP programme is your passport to prestigious, world-class universities that will help you fulfill your future dreams and provide you with the opportunities that will support your preparation for a bright future.
From our side, the CIS team is committed to providing you with quality education, inclusive learning environment, resources, guidance, and support throughout this journey. However, we expect you to take full advantage of the upcoming two years, be committed to achieving your goals, and always be the best you can.
We wish all our learners the best of luck and look forward to an exciting two years of great achievement and success.
Best Regards,
Wedad K. Al Sa’ad
