Cayman International School is planning on expanding to meet growing demand for places.
The expansion of Cayman International School is an exciting project that will increase the capacity of the school to nearly 1100 (including four classes at each grade level). The new Early Childhood Center will provide an environment for the youngest students to play, grow and learn. The new High School building will include a double gymnasium and performing arts spaces.
The expansion is expected to be completed by August 2020. Expansion partnership is between CIS and Kenneth B. Dart Foundation and the development cost is US $60m funded by Kenneth B. Dart Foundation.
“We have been very strategic about our growth,” The school’s director, Mr. Moore said. “We have worked hard to make it happen the right way; we want to maintain the small class sizes and the family atmosphere.”
Lawrence Kline of project architect Perkins+Will said the aim was to create an academic center that would enhance the Camana Bay community.
“The open, day-lighted spaces will allow for flexibility of use and the opportunity for formal and informal learning environments to enhance the current curriculum, emphasizing collaborative, multidisciplinary, team-based learning,” he said.
