The KIS Parents Association (KISPA) is a warm, welcoming community of KIS parents. There are representatives for many different languages and grades that are happy to be the contact point for parents, new and returning, that have questions or need advice regarding the school.
Below is a list of some of these parents and some quotes from them about their own experiences here at KIS. If you would like to contact any of our parent reps, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to put you in touch with them.
Larisa Grajdieru G1 & G3 parent, Country Representative:
"KIS International is the school we were dreaming of to find for our kids. The education is solid, but they think out of the box at the same time. Seeing our kids so happy to go to school everyday since they became KIS students confirms the fact that we made the right choice. The KIS environment is safe, friendly, and clean. What we like the most is the IB curriculum. The PYP prepares the kids to become learners, risk and action takers who question the world and do their own research when looking for answers.
Thank you KIS International School!
Larisa can speak English, French and Russian.
Sanja Babic, Croatian, G1 parent, Country Representative:
"KIS is a great school with an amazing green campus. For children's development, there is a fine balance between learning and physical activities. KIS encourages students to express themselves and trust teachers along the way. Students are active and eager to learn different processes in life. There are great teachers in G1 who teach the children where to look but not what to see. They guide them how to discover things/processes by themselves."
Sanya can speak Croatian, English and some Thai.
Tiia Lewman, Finnish, Grade 2 parent, Country Representative:
"Hi, I'm Tiia Lewman. I'm originally from Finland. I am a language teacher by training and a mother of a second grader, an enthusiastic football player. I've been enjoying life in Bangkok since 2014."

"KIS is a great school for my daughter as the teachers instill in her curiosity, and teach her to ask questions to understand the topic better. They then help her to independently and creatively find answers to those questions. We chose KIS 2.5 years ago after searching for almost one year, comparing 12 international schools in Bangkok, and we couldn't be happier with our choice."
Catharina can speak English and Indonesian.
