Children love to play, so an element of fun and games is incorporated into every lesson. Everything is interactive and tactile! Fun in the classroom means students are encouraged to pick things up, take things apart and then put them back together again. This leads to Scientific and Technical Innovation.
We’d like to thank you and the entire KIS team for providing Sofia with a welcoming environment conducive to academic and social growth. KIS was the perfect choice for us and can only hope we find a similar school as we continue our overseas adventure.
We aren't big fans of traditional school systems, be it French, Japanese, English or else so when the time came to find a school for our daughter we were worried we wouldn't find anything to our liking. We were even considering home schooling. We had the opportunity to visit KIS and we were stunned by the IB program, the teaching method and philosophy, the school and the community in general. We sent our daughter for a trial day and she came back smiling and conquered. Our decision was taken and we never looked back since. We feel blessed to be able to send our kids to KIS. The kids are not pushed to learn but they are given the love to learn, it makes everything so much easier. We are always astonished and happy to see that they love going to school everyday.
With respect to its environment there is a healthy and relaxed atmosphere with good facilities which allows my child to have fun while at same time it secures the proper motivation and commitment to learn. In particular to my daughter we can see a progress at her development where the growth of fundamental values of Knowledge, Inspiration and Spirit became part of her normal life.
In general, we believe KIS provides a close relationship between teachers and respective students where we feel a proper academic follow up of our children.

We were very excited when we found out that we were moving to Bangkok. We started browsing for schools in Bangkok. KIS caught our attention when our daughter (then in grade 3) said 'Mummy I want to go to this school', without having been to the school - just by looking at the school's website. We were so pleased with how the school handled our enquiries, they were very attentive and accommodating, as of the moment we walked into the school, they made us feel as we are part of the KiS family. Our children settled in immediately on their first day of school, and they came home very happy. Now in our fourth year at KIS we are proud to see how they are becoming better people......what else can we ask for?
In the three years that we have been in KIS, we have always experienced a sense of camaraderie among students and parents. I am happy that my kids are flourishing in the IB curriculum and that the curriculum allows the parents to be more involved in the children's learning.
