The ISK elementary schools provides a warm, caring and engaging environment for our youngest students. Our program serves pre-kindergarten through grade 5 i.e. children ages 4-10. We encourage parents to form engaged partnerships in their child’s learning experience.
A curriculum of math, science, social studies and language arts, modern language, art, music, library and physical education is offered to all students. Technology is integrated in all aspects of the curriculum. It supports and enriches the program and engages the students in meaningful learning.
Students have many opportunities to showcase their learning through student-led conferences, performances, presentations, assemblies and exhibitions throughout the year.
Through our Educational Aims we encourage children to be effective communicators, creative thinkers, problem solvers, collaborative team players and global citizens who will act appropriately to make a positive difference in the world.
Our Peer Helper Program and PRIDE student government organization offer the children opportunities to lead and help each other through active community involvement.
Local field trips and overnight intercultural trips further enhance each student’s skill concept development through exposure to some aspect of Kenyan culture.
The ISK elementary school is vibrant place focused on developing students’ natural curiosity and creativity while facilitating their academic, physical and social/emotional development.
All curricular and co-curricular programs in the elementary school aim to fulfill the ISK mission, vision and educational Aims. In order to prepare the students for a rapidly changing world, we believe that they should not only be literate and numerate in a multitude of subjects and fields but develop a real passion for such pursuits.
The ES academic program is built around four core areas: language arts, mathematics, social studies inquiry and science inquiry. In addtion subjects such as art, PE, music, modern languages (Spanish and French and Kiswahili in grades 1-3), technology, and library offer students the opportunities to develop skills and interests within the broader the curriculum. Kiswahili is also taught within the context of the Kenya units of inquiry.
