NewsCarlsbad International School: Welcoming and safe boarding school

Carlsbad International School makes great efforts to be a welcoming and safe international community. Students come from various school environments, cultural and social backgrounds, and geographic locations to join CIS.

Carlsbad International School is located in the UNESCO candidate spa town of Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. According to the latest Global Peace Index, the Czech Republic ranked 6th of the 163 assessed countries. It has a population of 10 million inhabitants, a high level of education, dense and safe transport network and a developed social infrastructure. The Czech Republic also provides a great basis for travel around Europe.

CIS campus is situated in the magnificent valley of the Teplá River. It is just a 10-minute walk from the spa zone. On weekends our students can check out with their friend, a mobile phone and an insurance card to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Karlovy Vary.

The small but very diverse CIS community allows professional educators, residential life team and support staff to tailor support for every single student. This extends to individual attention in the pre-diploma or IB Diploma programmes. It includes support during Study Hall, but also personalized pastoral care. “Our teachers and ResLife team members act like parents”, says Davi Sanchez Netto, Head of School. “They celebrate your child’s successes and they help when he or she is down. They share the moments of joy with students and they foster the “home away from home” concept for all CIS students”.
