KIS is located in a quiet, gated and guarded housing estate near the centre of Bangkok, and the artistically designed facilities are purpose-built to facilitate the instruction of the IB programmes.
In August 2018 the school opened a brand new Arts and Design center. The new facilities include a fully equipped design suite with a CNC machine, laser cutters, a vulcaniser, several saws and other machinery for design of large objects. These complement the existing 3D printers, molding equipment and large format printer. Two visual arts studios with plenty of natural light and wonderful space, and a new black box performing arts facility support KIS students' creativity. The building also hosts a multipurpose hall, a new school shop, a carpentry room, a home sciences room, and several offices, including the admissions office. A new sports building is set to open in early 2019.
The Primary School
The Primary School is well resourced, student-friendly and designed and organized to support the Primary Years Programme. The Early Years center is located on the ground floor, has many natural elements for the children to explore such as water and sand play, and it allows the children to be creative in our building and role play stations.
In addition to the spacious classrooms, the Primary School building has a computer lab, chromebooks and iPods, spaces for group learning, a drama room, a multi-purpose room, a small gymnasium and a large colourful library with a wide range of multimedia and reading materials in English and some other languages. In 2016, much of the PYP building was renovated with new learning spaces that have ample light, are designed with acoustics in mind and provide classroom environments with 21st century learning in mind. These are high-end classrooms which allow you to hear equal loudness from any position in the classroom – even the sound of a soft whisper or any conversation. The quality of speech clarity is higher than the regular classrooms, making KIS a leader in acoustic classrooms.
The purposefully designed Early Years library provides our youngest students with a cozy, intimate area stocked with age appropriate materials to support their information gathering, reading and listening. It also has 2 spacious music rooms, a playgroup suite and a recording room.
The Secondary School
Secondary school students enjoy a dedicated building where they benefit from well-resourced facilities which support instruction of the Middle Years and IB Diploma Programmes. Facilities include fully furnished classrooms, a library and media centre, study areas, IB Diploma lounge and study centre, language suites, an art suite, Design and IT labs including a Mac lab, and biology, chemistry and physics labs.
Covered walkways from the Primary and Secondary School buildings provide easy and visually stimulating access to facilities shared by both schools. They include music suites and a dance studio on the main level. A 25 meter swimming pool plus a separate wading pool are situated on the 2nd floor. Our auditorium has a 600 seating capacity and the school Canteen has a 300 seating capacity. Outdoor facilities include two fully equipped age appropriate playgrounds for the Early Years and Primary School students, two covered sports areas, and playing fields.
