About Kazakhstan International School (KIS)

Founded in 1999, Kazakhstan International School is a small school with big ambitions! Located in Kazakhstan’s beautiful former capital Almaty, KIS is an IB World School, with PYP from Early Years through Grade 5, and MYP Candidate School status for Grades 6-7. Our students and teachers come from about 30 countries. We are now entering an exciting new chapter of expansion, with a new campus scheduled to open in August 2018, offering the PYP and MYP to children from pre-kindergarten to Grade 10 (Year 11 equivalent). Subsequent years will see us add Grades 11 and 12 so that we can offer the IB Diploma Programme. Our new campus will enjoy an ideal location in a central yet leafy part of the city, with excellent facilities to support our students’ academic, physical, personal and social development. Our aim is to be the leading IB school in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, so that the children of our multicultural community can be fully prepared for the challenges of the fast-changing world in which we live. KIS students are independent, creative, socially aware individuals and they are a delight to work with. Our local and expatriate staff form a cohesive team of diverse cultural backgrounds, ages and experiences. We work in close partnership with parents for the benefit of the children.

About Almaty and Kazakhstan

Almaty is a lively, safe and well-developed city in a spectacular setting at the foot of the snowy Tien Shan mountains. We have a true four-seasons climate with glorious sunny summers, crisp, snowy winters, and a colourful spring and autumn. Lovers of the outdoors can enjoy year-round hiking; cycling and camping in the summer; and skiing, snowboarding and ice-skating in winter. The city’s cultural life is rich and varied, with opera, ballet, classical and modern music alongside a vibrant café culture, innumerable restaurants offering cuisine from around the world, and a thriving nightlife. Kazakh culture centres on the family, and the city is well-suited to young and growing families. Kazakhstan itself is a vast and beautiful country to explore, from the green expanses of the steppe to majestic mountains, dramatic deserts, and two landlocked seas, as well as many archaeological and architectural wonders. Europe, Central and Southeast Asia, China, the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East are easily accessible from Almaty.
