In spring 2010 some parents who were unhappy with the provision of international education in Bishkek decided to establish a non-profit community school to provide:
· High quality international education at reasonable cost
· Community and parental involvement in the school
· A broader impact on education in the Kyrgyz Republic
The European School in Central Asia was legally registered on December 1st 2010. The first School Advisory Council meeting was held with the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, Roza Otunbaeva, on May 16th 2011 in the Ministry of Education.
The school building was identified in June 2011 and purchased in July 2011 using founders’ grant contributions, founders’ loans and a bank loan.
The school opened on September 1st 2011 with 20 children enrolled, ages two to ten years old.
Continuous improvement has been a constant feature of the school, with governance by the community to build a great institution with solid foundations providing excellent education for children.
The Cumberland High School Community promotes development of a culture in which students are respectful, responsible, and ready to succeed. We guide our students to be actively involved in the learning process that combines academic depth of understanding with higher order thinking, problem-solving, risk-taking, and creativity. We offer opportunities for students, as members of a 21st century world society, to become life-long learners and informed, productive citizens.
