Kazakhstan International School

Welcome to KIS!

WELCOME TO KIS!

Kazakhstan International School is a special place.  When I first walked into the school I felt a sense of community, a sense of awe and a sense of wonder.  As I spent my time looking through the school, I learned that those qualities are permanent fixtures in the school.  The students are courteous and courageous, the teachers are passionate and engaging and the parents are supportive and welcoming.  It was for these reasons I chose to join KIS.  This year represents my 20th in education, my 16th as an IB educator and my 9th as a senior leader and I am excited to bring that experience to Almaty to build on the foundations described above.  As Head of School, I will make myself available - not only to listen to parents - but to partner with them to help KIS serve their children better.

Ole Bernard Sealey, Head of School

 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new and returning families. Kazakhstan International School is an amazing school and offers great learning experiences and opportunities to our students. We are committed to providing a quality education for our students that develops the whole child as a caring, open-minded and lifelong learner.
It is an exciting time for new families to join KIS as we are growing and expanding our program. Our teaching team is committed to success of every child!
I am proud to be at KIS and look forward to the next year full of learning and new experiences!

Elena Maksymova, Elementary School Principal

 

KIS is a wonderful learning community where Early Years education is seen as the foundation for lifelong learning. My passion as an educator and leader has always been to make sure that all students have equal opportunities to grow into their best potential, not only as learners but as human beings as well. Childhood is not only preparation for the future, it’s a unique phase in life where play and inquiry are the main channels for learning and the power of imagination opens up worlds with amazing possibilities. Our important task is to provide an engaging program that enhances students' natural curiosity and joy of learning. Those are the superpowers that will carry them through their school years and further in life as well.  We are proud to provide our EY program at two campuses: Edelweiss and Main Campus. I am so excited to continue working with our dedicated educators, students and families.
