Major Expansion Planned for ISS School in Cayman Islands

Cayman International School will embark on a significant expansion that will nearly double its current size and student capacity. The US$60 million expansion is being completed by Dart, in partnership with International Schools Services, and seeks to serve more children from Pre-K to grade 12. Included in the plan is a new pre-K campus and an 87,000 square-foot high school facility. The pre-K campus is targeted to open in August 2019; the new, purpose-built high school facilities are scheduled to open in August 2020.
