Cracow International School is a school whose mission is to bring up strong, well-educated people, successfully coping in the modern world, at the same time being sensitive and socially involved. Symbolizing the educational and didactic activities of the school and its strengths, CIS refers to the yew tree, because it is so unique as it is and gives the pupils a solid foundation for further development. Educates students characterized by unique features and skills, able to work individually and as a team, live and develop in Poland and in a multicultural foreign environment, ready to devote themselves to others. These attributes simultaneously reflect the way the school works, which focuses on each student, caring for its social, intellectual, emotional and physical development. It also pays special attention to the development of language competences, especially in the field of English, which children learn every day from kindergarten. This education is stress-free, because in the initial period - in kindergarten and during early school education - the school uses play-based programs. In the course of this "fun", which involves all children, the teachers pursue didactic and educational goals, and the pupils learn the next batch of material alongside the foreign language and gain social skills. Both in kindergarten and primary school there is the Cambridge Primary program, designed for international schools, which, assuming comprehensive development of students, focuses on learning English, mathematics and science. In CIS they are conducted entirely in English. The Cambridge program is adapted to the core curriculum of a given country, thus the CIS fully implements the Polish core curriculum, and at the end of each class students receive Polish certificates of completion of the next class.
