Why KIS?

At KIS, learning is about more than academics. We support your children to become caring, open-minded adults with the skills and qualities they need for life.

The International Baccalaureate programme used at KIS is academically rigorous. The IB is an educational programme for 3 to 18-year-olds created by educators to help develop skilled, thoughtful and socially aware young people. The IB Organization (IBO) is a non-profit organization, which is independent of governments, with IB World Schools in over 150 countries worldwide. Leading universities around the world seek IB students esteemed for their academic skills and personal organization required to succeed in their studies. IB students are prepared to engage with the wider world and contribute actively to society.


We support your children to become caring, open-minded adults with the skills and qualities they need for life. 



At KIS, learning is about more than academics. 

A genuinely multicultural international school, our students and staff come from over 20 countries around the world, with roughly 40% of our students being expatriates. We promote international-mindedness and global awareness, while engaging locally to help our community in Almaty and across Kazakhstan.

KIS is a warm and welcoming community where everyone is valued, creating a family-like atmosphere with close partnerships between parents and the school. We have an active, supportive Parent-Teacher Association with a voice at board level, too.

English is the language of communication in the school, not only in the classroom, but also when socializing during breaks and around school. 

Anything is possible with the right start.
