Kyoto International School (KIS) would like to welcome new and returning to students and their families. On this page you’ll find some basic information to help you start the coming school year. Most of the information linked below is not password protected, however some more detailed information is located behind a secure web portal. To access the this portal, a username and password are required. For new families, these will be emailed to you before the start of school in August.

  • Preparation
    • Start of Semester 1 – August 24th, 2021 @ 8:30 am
  • Portals at KIS
    Student applications and re-enrolment are handled by OpenApply, which is connected to ManageBac (academics) and SchoolsBuddy (clubs). It is important that family contact information is up-to-date for smooth communication. Additionally, we have a general web portal with detailed manuals, newsletter, forms, and support information for students, parents, teachers and whole community.
  • Extreme Weather & Earthquake Procedures
    KIS generally follows the actions of Kyoto City officials in deciding whether to cancel school. As soon as the decision has been made to cancel school, a notice will be placed on the school’s website and an email/notice is sent to all families.
  • Covid-19 Re-entry Guidelines
    Please watch our video that outlines our precautions and other actions to support the health and well-being of our community.
