Welcome to KIS

Kyoto International School (KIS) has been serving the beautiful city of Kyoto since 1957. The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the International Baccalaureate (IB). The school is known for its inclusive sense of community and personalised learning for every student. As a not-for-profit school KIS can channel all our resources into effective learning and developing students who thrive in positively influencing the global community.

KIS is located in the heart of one of the world’s best known cities. Our proximity to the cultural richness of Kyoto is unbeatable, enabling our students to access the city’s historical traditions and modern innovations.

What we are proud of at Kyoto International School is our community. Our students, teachers and parents work together to ensure our school is safe and secure, provides quality education and encourages lifelong learning. The small, intimate size of our classes enables us to know our students and families well. We encourage inclusion, open communication and mutual respect.

Our curriculum is significant, meaningful, engaging and challenging. The International Baccalaureate Organisation’s Primary Years Programme provides the framework to develop the thinking, communication, social, self-management and research skills our students need for success in the 21st century. We endeavour to nurture the whole child: cognitively, physically, emotionally and socially. Our students are encouraged to take action as a result of their learning, either on a personal level or with a wider community.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
