Our Admission Statement

Kyoto International School serves the needs of families who reside in the Kansai area and have an interest in an English language internationally designed education. Admissions and class placement will be decided by criteria such as available space, age, current grade level enrollment, past student achievement and motivation, language support at home, and prospects of learning successfully at KIS. Kyoto International School seeks motivated students who will be able to succeed in a challenging and well-rounded program.
