Why KIS?

Great, medium-sized community:

Aside from our strong IB Programmes, most parents will say that the best part of KIS is the close-knit community. As we have around 700 students, the students, teachers, staff and parents are well connected. There is a lot of participation in our community events, the security guards know the students by name and the teachers are able to give the students the attention and care that they need to grow and succeed with the IB. The school is large enough to offer great facilities and a wide range of academic and extra-curricular activities, and small enough to feel cozy and personal, with each student being respected as an individual. New families are made to feel welcome and new students soon feel a sense of belonging. 

The IB Programmes:

Our curriculum embraces an international approach to learning through the International Baccalaureate Programmes where students thrive in a lively mix of cultures, traditions, and ideas in a safe and nurturing environment. Many international schools in Bangkok only offer the Diploma Programme (DP), but KIS is fully dedicated to the IB from the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) to the DP. 

Strong Academics:

KIS offers a strong academic programme for our Primary and Secondary School students. Many of our outstanding graduates have been at KIS since they were young, showing that the school’s programmes pave the way to success. Our academic standards are verified with standardized testing throughout the school and by the results of our IB Diploma students. These benchmarks provide evidence that education at KIS meets the standard of top international schools, not just in Bangkok but around the world. Our average IB Diploma scores always exceed the world IB averages and our pass rates do too.  

As a result our graduates have been accepted to prestigious universities all around the world, and our graduating classes average around $1,000,000 USD in university scholarships offered. 

Safe, Easy to Access Environment: 

Being a medium-sized school, we are lucky to have a close-knit and caring community. Our campus is located within the gated Kesinee housing community, and the teachers and guards know all of the students that pass through our gates by name. We also practice child safe hiring methods to ensure that our environment is kept safe for everyone.

As we are located just 7 kilometers north of Ekamai, our campus is far enough away from high traffic areas, while being close enough to all the conveniences that Bangkok has to offer. We offer a free shuttle to and from the MRT Thailand Cultural Centre Station, and we also have a shuttle service from the Ekamai BTS station.  
Our community of dedicated teachers, supportive parents and enthusiastic students share a love of learning and work together to model and exemplify the IB Learner Profile both at school and in the home. We invite families from around the world who share these values to join the KIS community.

Student applications are accepted all year round for Early Years 3 to Grade 11 (Grade 11 students must start at the beginning of the first term). Applications into Grade 12 are usually not possible. There are fixed application periods for applications into the Early Years classes. 

We hope you will tour the KIS website for information on our programmes and for an introduction to our distinctive community of learning. We then look forward to welcoming you at school.
