About Christian International School of Prague
The Christian International School of Prague (CISP) is a community of caring staff and teachers as well as diverse students. We provide an excellent education (courses are taught in English language) which is about more than just academics. The education at CISP is practically oriented, and our students are challenged to grow into responsible contributors to society. We believe that education should kindle students’ delight in learning and lay the groundwork for a joyful life of service to the world around us.
The teachers and staff at CISP strive daily to have an impact on our students that will leave a legacy in their minds and, more importantly, in their hearts. As students look back and remember the day they met their best friend and laugh at the outdated clothing and hairstyles; when grades, tests and disagreements are long forgotten, we pray that they will have no doubt that CISP impacted their life in many unforgettable ways.

Country Summary (from the World Factbook)
At the close of World War I, the Czechs and Slovaks of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire merged to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar years, having rejected a federal system, the new country's predominantly Czech leaders were frequently preoccupied with meeting the increasingly strident demands of other ethnic minorities within the republic, most notably the Slovaks, the Sudeten Germans, and the Ruthenians (Ukrainians). On the eve of World War II, Nazi Germany occupied the territory that today comprises the Czech Republic, and Slovakia became an independent state allied with Germany. After the war, a reunited but truncated Czechoslovakia (less Ruthenia) fell within the Soviet sphere of influence. In 1968, an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended the efforts of the country's leaders to liberalize communist rule and create "socialism with a human face," ushering in a period of repression known as "normalization." The peaceful "Velvet Revolution" swept the Communist Party from power at the end of 1989 and inaugurated a return to democratic rule and a market economy. On 1 January 1993, the country underwent a nonviolent "velvet divorce" into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.
