As Calcutta International School

In 1970, the Calcutta International School Society (CISS) was formed under the West Bengal Society's Regulation Act, 1961. Today, the school is a larger institution for the sons and daughters of expatriates, foreign passport holders, former non-resident Indians and the local community (in that order).

Famous quotes containing the word school:

    ... the school should be an appendage of the family state, and modeled on its primary principle, which is, to train the ignorant and weak by self-sacrificing labor and love; and to bestow the most on the weakest, the most undeveloped, and the most sinful.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)
