KIS International School is set in a green, quiet, gated community in the city center of Bangkok, Thailand. KIS is located on Pracha-Utit Road, just north of Rama 9 Road and east of Asoke-Rachadapisek. Situated on a tree-lined avenue of the gated Kesinee Ville Housing Estate, the school exudes a warm welcome to all who visit; the atmosphere is one of a close community in a safe, clean and green environment. Providing housing for approximately 150 families, the estate itself is intimate, friendly and a great place to raise a family. With a mix of both international and Thai residents, it's a relaxed and easy place to both visit and live.
KIS is also easily accessible from many locations in Bangkok and as such, families have a variety of choices for housing locations around central Bangkok or the suburbs, and still have easy access to KIS.
The school is located close to the MRT station Thailand Cultural Center, from which a shuttle van takes students and staff to school and back. Using this service a typical commute from Sukhumvit 21 or 23 would be around 20 minutes.
