The educational and learning community of CSS is comprised of CSS students, their parents, teachers and supporting staff.


As an IB World School we are committed to the attributes that are valued by IB community across the globe. We developed the CSS Attributes through blending the IB Learner Profile with core values of our school, which includes our affiliation to Invitational Education and our community’s cultural roots.


Our aspiration is that everyone in our community – students, staff and parents - develop greater international mindedness and act as positive members of local, national and global communities so as to contribute to a better and more peaceful world.
