To surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
The philosophy of CIS is based on the idea of keeping students in school by directly addressing all of the problems and concerns that cause the child not to do well in school or consider dropping out. CIS’s comprehensive programs provides students with the opportunity to overcome obstacles thus making it easier for them to stay in school, successfully learn, and prepare for life.

When interviewed, my experience and qualification were well received. Because of that, it was agreed that I would work best with intermediate or High School aged youth. Later, I was called and asked to observe at an Elementary school. The students I observed were not being handled effectively or administered to in a responsible manner. Other classes I observed were being better controlled, I felt it was because they had adult supervision. One week after my observation, which was the same day I was to return if accepted?, I was notified I was not accepted. As a professional, I found the program management acted in an unprofessional manner, the program not to be preforming as promoted, and the youth were being lead by immature teens who were not responsible enough to be in charge of a classroom. I am a college graduate with many years of training and experience as was noted in the initial interview.
