About Us

KIS is more than academics, more than a school - we are a community with a strong vision & mission.

We are pleased to introduce you to Kazakhstan International School (KIS) - Astana. Eventually we plan to offer the IB Programme for Kindergarten through Grade 12 with a rich array of academics, arts, and athletics in a setting that inspires excellence and a love for learning. At the start, from August 2024, we will begin with Kindergarten through Grade 4 (PYP*).

Founded in 1998, KIS has made student-centered, inquiry-based learning a priority from the start. From our beginnings as the first Montessori based kindergarten in Almaty, Kazakhstan, we have consistently made decisions with a clear goal in mind: supporting quality student learning and social-emotional growth. With that goal in mind, KIS Astana will develop to become one of a select number of world schools to offer the full IB continuum: PYP (Reception Class to Grade 5), MYP (Grades 6-10) and DP (Grades 11-12).

At KIS, we are more than academics; we are a learning community of students, parents, teachers, and staff working together to create a school culture that ensures a world-class, international education.
I look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
