KIS International School is an international school in Huay Kwang district of Bangkok, Thailand. KIS (Knowledge Inspiration Spirit) offers International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes right from the early years through to Grade 12.
Students learn through three IB programmes – the primary years programme for the 3- 11 years age group, the middle years programme for the 11-16 years age group and the IB diploma programme for the 16-18 years age group. The three programmes are structured so as to provide a continuum of learning. The curriculum is broad, balanced, inquiry-based and globally conscious.
At KIS, students are equipped with tools that help them develop an aptitude for mathematics, science, social science, languages, literature and the arts. Students are encouraged to pursue sports actively and are engaged in activities like theatre, music, art, journalism, cooking and debate. Local & global community service and travel programmes give students a substantial global exposure.
The school’s accreditations, authorisations and partnerships testify to the internationally benchmarked, quality education it offers. It is accredited by Council of International Schools.
