KIS students graduate at the end of Grade 12 with an IB Diploma or a KIS High School Diploma with IB Certificates. The IB Diploma, as well as the certificates, are well respected, recognized, and often preferred by universities around the world, including in the US, the UK, Australia and Thailand. This offers students the best opportunity to go to their first choice university. Credits towards the first year of college (in the US) are often given to IB Diploma holders.

The most recent results were outstanding and here are some of the highlights from the Class of 2016:

The class of 2016 continued the excellent academic results that KIS is known for. Our 32 graduating students ALL participated in the full International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme and ALL of them passed, receiving the prestigious IB Diploma. This 100 percent pass rate is significantly higher than the IB average pass rate worldwide this year of 81%.
As in previous years, the average score that KIS students were awarded well exceeded the world average score. The average of our KIS students was 34 points, compared to the world average of 30 points. This has placed the school in the top 25% of the world for the last 5 years.
Another notable achievement is that 60% of our students achieved a bilingual diploma, compared to 29 percent globally. This is a testimony to the strong languages programme at KIS.
This year 4 of our 32 students scored 41 points or more, putting them in the top 3% of all students, with two of these scoring a 43 and 44 (just one point away from a perfect score), putting them both in the top 1% globally.

KIS had its first graduating class in June 2010. Below is a list of the Universities and Colleges into which KIS students have been accepted to date:
