We do it better together... students, teachers and parents as one.

To be truly effective as an international school, the first priority must be to create a sense of belonging. All who visit our campus can feel the supportive family atmosphere of MKIS. Our multi-cultural diversity brings children from many nations together with an assurance of belonging. We are there when you arrive to make your first days as comfortable as possible, and we will shed tears when it is time for you to depart. A student that is welcomed into a new learning environment adapts easily and is more receptive to the learning experience. Our objective at MKIS is to ensure academic excellence in a safe environment, where our parent and teacher community supports learners. Our exceptional contingent of qualified teaching staff is committed to providing the optimum educational experience through a differentiated instructional approach. Our classrooms offer a multitude of approaches to what students learn, how they learn it, and how they demonstrate what they have learned, tapping into multiple intelligence theory by allowing students to excel in their areas of strength, whether that be through artistic media presentation, dance, drama and musical performance, written expression, academic accomplishment, scientific research, or speaking in a public forum.
