Welcome to the Kazakhstan International School Astana.
Finding the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a family can make.
KIS Astana is a new, purpose built state-of-the-art school which will plan to offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) program. IB is synonymous for excellence and quality and as we grow, we will join a community of over 5000 schools throughout the world.
Our school attracts families who desire a high-quality education that focuses on the whole child—not just the intellectual and physical, but the social and spiritual as well.
I invite you to visit KIS. We are centrally located in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. Your family is welcome and will hopefully become part of a very special community. As we develop, we aim to be a leading IB school in Central Asia.
I look forward to welcoming your child and family to KIS Astana.

To be a caring, impactful community that excels in learning and life.
The KIS community nurtures a growth mindset through a holistic education that connects cultures.
As parents of two boys attending elementary school at KIS, we are pleased that our boys are in the hands of professional, positive and attentive teachers. There is a supportive culture which helps to form strong study habits. We are looking forward to the next school year!

As an expat I wanted a safe, family environment where my child would be immersed in an international community. KIS has provided that and more during his four years as a student there. The IB education has given him confidence as well as excellent language and personal skills. He has developed his independence and a sense of self while learning to be a world citizen, to make a difference in the world.

Our three teenagers are enrolled at KIS, and our eldest just graduated from the IB Diploma Programme. She will attend her top choice university, which is ranked in the top 20 worldwide for her career path.

It is important to us that our child is in an educational environment in which he is self-motivated and really enjoys learning. KIS successfully creates this learning environment. Our son looks forward to going to school each day and is always excited about the new things he learns. The teachers are great at getting the kids to ask lots of questions, and link what they learn to the real world. As part of the IB programme we are confident that the curriculum taught at KIS is up to the best international standards.

When we moved to Almaty, our biggest fear was the smooth integration for our children into an international school of high standards. KIS proved beyond our expectations. Not only were our children academically challenged and encouraged, but they quickly developed socially, and the teachers were well trained. Most importantly, my children are happy here!
