It is indeed an honor to extend to you a warm welcome to the elementary division of KIS, where international traditions and innovative methodologies come together to provide an optimal experience for your young scholar.
Since August of 2000, KIS has offered a distinct caliber of uncompromised academic education which embodies our original vision – that of empowering today’s children to become balanced global citizens. As your commitment to private education was formed by choice, not convenience, KIS is equally committed to ensuring that your expectations for excellence are fulfilled. Our well-appointed facilities, rigorous curriculum, and specialist programs are specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of students during their all-important foundational years. Our faculty are “hand selected” and have the educational experience and credentials to guide young children.
We welcome you, in essence, to a community where students feel at home and know they are daily supported by a staff well-versed in “bringing out the best” in young learners. KIS is deeply devoted to maintaining an educational environment that encourages each student to develop his/her unique gifts. KIS students are valued as individuals who demonstrate varied interests, abilities and learning styles; thus, our methodologies are adapted accordingly. The best academic institutions are not those which produce simply the highest scores, but those which achieve balanced training of the whole person, enabling students to reach even beyond what they imagine possible.
In tandem with our clearly outlined academic goals, KIS upholds the highest standards of behavioral expectations. In this matter as in the curricular applications, the faculty and staff are accomplished in guiding the children towards increased self-direction and accountability – “choosing to do what’s right because it is right.” Students are led in understanding what it means to be a “KIS PAL”; such training in positive character development is linked to the cornerstone of our Core Values, so they become far more than mere posters on the wall.
Without question, the hallmark of KIS is the formation of esteemed global citizens; in this regard, as we observe students developing a personal commitment to respectful, responsible, and productive choices which are practiced in the wider arena of their lives, we are rewarded.
Yours in Education,
Elementary School Principal
