Very little APs are offered, there are almost no advanced classes of any kind, and only ~20-30 out of the 550 students have averages above 90.

I am fortunate my son has the opportunity to be part of a such a wonderful school. The faculty is supportive and available to the students and parents at all times. They provide an amazing array of resources for students to improve and progress academically. I am confident that CSIHS has helped my child establish a strong foundation on which he will build on in college. As a parent, I am informed on the happenings at school as well as my childs progress. In fact, I am encouraged and welcome to take an active role in CSIHS. The student body is comprised of young men and women who work hard and enjoy participating in various school activities. I cannot wait for my youngest to attend and he's only 8! This school is definitely the best choice for any prospective high schooler.

I wish all my children could have gone to CSIHSIS. My youngest child attends CSIHSIS and I have to say this is one of the best schools I have had the pleasure to be a part of. The teachers and staff are always helpful and courteous. I am always informed about any events. The PTA keeps me constantly updated on all information pertaining to CSIHSIS as well as sponsorships, scholarships and volunteer services. CSIHSIS really want their children to succeed, not only do they offer tutoring during the school week, but also Saturday and Sunday prep for Regents. All I can say is thank you CSIHSIS.

I love CSI High School because you can truly get a feeling of a family right from the moment that you enter the building. From students to faculty members, everybody is just so welcoming! Also, the opportunities that are have for students (even Freshman) are very beneficial. I couldn't imagine that I would be ready for a future career nor college if it weren't for CSIHSIS. Go Dragons!

We love the high expectations for students at CSI HS. The small school model provides opportunity for teachers and staff to really know each student. Students are valued as individuals and are encouraged to explore extracurricular interests.

I am a parent of a student attending CSIHSIS. This school is wonderful for children who beat to their own drum. Academically, your child will not become lost in the crowd. The teachers try to help each individual student that will or will not accept their help. It is an environment that promotes learning and celebrates differences. Parents, if you have an intelligent child who stopped doing their best in school because they wanted to fit in with other students, this school will encourage them to do their best. The second reason I picked this school was their commitment to Community Service. I am a single, working mother with a disability and never had the time or energy to show my daughter to give back to her community. President Obama made Community Service popular but this school was commited before President Obama was elected.

This is a great, academically rigorous small school where children, staff and parents are like a family. The international focus is evident from the first project students work on. The school provides a supportive and nurturing environment where all students are valued and provided with opportunities.
