Bus services

CISB provides optional bus service for students starting at 3 years old. 

Our fleet of buses arrive at school each morning by 8:10am and depart right after school at 3:45PM (Mon-Thurs) and 2:45PM (Friday). A late bus service that leaves by 5:00PM is also available to support our After-School activities program. Most bus stops are located throughout north-east Beijing and we do our best to provide additional stops when a minimum of 3 students request for one location.

Each bus is supervised by a Bus Monitor. Bus Monitors check students as they board and leave the bus and ensure they remain seated and wear seat belts during their journey.

Our Mission


Small change to the Health description too: The school clinic and dental office are open to serve students and staff during school hours from Monday to Friday. The clinic treats minor injuries, performs first aid, performs health screenings and maintains students’ health records. CISB is partnered with the Beijing United Family Hospital who helps us to provide services for accident emergencies, medical training and education, epidemic and seasonal disease prevention, physical checkups and dental care for all school members.

Our Mission 


It is one of our goals to direct students’ energy and attention towards their academic development and personal growth, hence all students are required to wear the school uniform while they are on campus. School uniforms can be purchased at the school’s designated tailor shop. For the convenience of the students and parents, a sufficient amount of supplies are also available on campus.

Our Mission


CISB provides a comprehensive 24-hour security service. Parents are required to show their CISB Parents Cards to enter the school, while all visitors must register at the front gate to be issued with a Visitor’s Pass. Guards are posted at all school’s entrances, and the campus is equipped with a closed-circuit television system and a state-of-the-art fire command center.
