Why We Love KIS

Read their words:

Our kids love attending KIS. The pandemic is not an ideal time to begin at a new school but they were able to jump in, get acclimated, make friends. Our oldest child especially loves being challenged more, pushed to her potential. We’re so happy the kids have school as a constant during these crazy times. So grateful they are enjoying school and receiving a wonderful education at KIS! Parent of currently enrolled elementary, middle and high school students 

I moved from Florida to Korea in January of last year, attending an IB program, and transferred to KIS my senior year in hopes of finding a better educational fit. After attending six different schools throughout my life, experiencing new environments and cultures, and making new friends, I can say that KIS has been one of the most accepting and inclusive schools I’ve ever attended. From day one, people have approached me in the hallways, invited me to sit with them, and offered to help me with any questions I have. The teachers here have also been some of the most involved teachers I’ve ever known. I can tell they have a strong desire to help students get the most out of their education. Transferring to KIS was a decision that I will never regret. Current KIS Senior

KIS offers many opportunities for our children to embark in their own perfect journey.  KIS is dedicated to listening to their students and parents in order to create a more perfect partnership. As a parent, I value the responsiveness of KIS. Parent and middle school PTO member

My talented KIS colleagues challenge and support me everyday. But I especially love teaching at KIS because of my students. Reading and writing alongside them for the past seven years is the true highlight of my career. I watch my students grow into phenomenal young people, actively pursuing their education to make the world a little better for everyone. Middle school teacher

The people at KIS are the most valuable resource of the school. During my thirteen years as a KIS student I met such a variety of people. Those encounters made me who I am. I found lifelong friends – through sports, school trips, classwork, even growing pains! KIS is a place of rich relationships.  Alum currently attending Brown University
