At CDNIS, we stand as one campus. Our through-train approach to learning sees us connect all levels of the school. We believe this philosophy of close collaboration enables students to receive a well-rounded and balanced learning experience. The pressure frequently associated with the transition between Lower and Upper Schools is eased and a strong sense of belonging and integration within a supportive and nurturing environment is cultivated.
