CEESA is the Central and Eastern European Schools Association, a regional association for international schools of which QSIS is a member. Membership is for schools that are supported by the US Department of State in Eastern Europe.
CEESA organizes a wide variety of sporting, academic and cultural activities that QSIS students participate in with great commitment and success. Student activities include a Cultural Arts Festival; celebrations; and sporting tournaments in football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, tennis, softball, track & field, and cross-country.
Students travel to tournaments and competitions held in various European cities each year and QSIS regularly hosts students participating in events from other CEESA member schools. Students typically travel to international schools in Croatia, Serbia, Austria, Poland, Finland, Albania, Skopje, and Montenegro.
CEESA also supports the professional needs of teachers with job-alike meetings, school exchanges, and teaching workshops. In addition, there is an Annual Conference, bringing together 250 teachers for professional growth, information sharing and networking. CEESA organizes several meetings during the year for school administrators, for the purpose of collaboration and planning.
