Welcome to Kyoto International School!
We are a small, but growing International Baccalaureate school, providing outstanding education to the Kyoto community. We are currently moving ahead with plans to develop a full high school and this year we will be expanding and improving our facilities. In 2025 we will open a Grade 11 class, followed by Grade 12 in 2026. We will soon become the only International Baccalaureate school in Kyoto offering IB education from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

At KIS, we are committed to providing the highest quality education for all age groups and our aim is to ensure that all students and all abilities are inspired, engaged and challenged at their level. To do this, we have an experienced team of creative and enthusiastic teachers who strive to implement the most effective, research based, educational practices. We are also committed to ensuring the highest levels of wellbeing for all students by making every day an enjoyable experience and by being there to listen and support when students face challenges in their lives. 

We are proud of our community at Kyoto International School. In our school, students, teachers and parents work together to create a safe environment and an inspiring education. The small, intimate size of our classes enables us to know our students and families very well. Our school is also special in that it is overseen by a committed, volunteer board, some of whom are parents and together, their role is to oversee the direction and development of the school.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
