It has experience of K–12 education in more than 100 countries and many of the Council's Officers and Consultants are former heads of international schools. The central purpose of CIS is to enable member organisations to achieve and deliver the highest standards in International Education and continually improve the outcome of student learning.

International Accreditation is available to independent and state schools in Australia through the Council of International Schools.

In 2005, Cleveland District state High School was invited to enter the process of international accreditation by Education Queensland. The process involved a preliminary visit in May 2006, when official candidacy was granted by the Council of International Schools. Subsequent to this visit, the school community embarked on a rigorous process of review, culminating in an Accreditation Team Visit in October 2006. International Accreditation was awarded in November 2006.
