Parent’s Presence

We believe that parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children and that cooperation between the school and the home is necessary to ensure that students reach their fullest potential. As a result, CDIS has established the following guidelines concerning residency of parents. At least one parent or guardian must have full-time residency in Chengdu or a nearby community . Guardians are only permitted to function in lieu of parents in unusual circumstances with the permission of the school administration.

Special Needs

CDIS has a Learning Support Team dedicated to meeting the students with specific special needs. If you feel your child has a specific learning or behavioral need, or if your child is coming from a school where they were enrolled in a special program for such needs, please notify the school at the time of enrollment.
