Global Citizenship

Being a Global Citizen is something important to us here at KIS. The school has developed a Global Citizenship statement to help explain the importance of this area. 

KIS believes a Global Citizen values their own and other cultures, espousing the IB Learner Profile attributes while taking principled action with social, political, economic or environmental issues of local and global importance.
