IB Diploma Candidate School
Kyoto International School is an International Baccalaureate school Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 10 and we are now an IB Diploma Candidate School, working towards opening Grade 11 and 12 in the near future. Our aim is to open Grade 11 in August 2025 and Grade 12 in August 2026. We will offer a full range of courses to ensure an outstanding high school offering and access to universities anywhere in the world.

New Facility for Middle and High School – Taiken Campus
KIS is renovating a new facility for middle and high school students, which is called the KIS Taiken Campus. It is about 6 minutes walk from the current KIS campus and it will open in August 2024. There will be significantly more space for our older students and capacity for substantial growth. The facilities will include a new science lab, performing arts room, art and design studio, classrooms for all other subjects, and a student study lounge. This exciting development will ensure that KIS can provide an outstanding experience and enable the development of a full high school programme for the school.
