Welcome Home to ISK
We know choosing the right international school in Kenya is a major decision. It goes beyond looking at a school's academic reputation. It is also important to consider the social and extracurricular opportunities available to every student. This will enable you to see what an ISK experience means for your whole family. .
That's what we're here for: to help you determine if ISK in Nairobi is the best fit for you and your family, and if it is, to help you successfully become part of the ISK family.
The International School of Kenya goes beyond education by nurturing globally-minded students who become effective self-managers, deep thinkers, skilled collaborators, eloquent communicators, and committed change-makers. With over 65 nationalities in our student body of around 1,000, ISK is a family–oriented international school ready to welcome and support new members into our community.
What can ISK offer?
ISK is a one-of-a-kind institution, embracing an educational approach that inspires learning for life. The ultimate measure of excellence is our attention to detail and capacity to meet each child's individual needs. The core of an ISK education is deep and personalized learning. Our students learn to think critically, collaborate with peers from diverse cultural backgrounds, and use creativity to solve unique challenges as they discover their passion and purpose in school.
You can have a first-hand experience of our child-focused and picturesque campus. Please note that tours can only be scheduled (by appointment) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays when school is in session.To help us prepare for your visit to ISK, we ask you to complete the following Expression of Interest form about you and your child(ren). The more information you provide, the more effectively we will be able to assist you.
Admission to ISK is non-discriminatory and open to all students without regard to race, sex, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation or national or ethnic origin. We invite applications from students who can benefit from an international, university preparatory English language education.
We accept students who can be successful in the daily academic program, provided there is space available in the grade. In addition, we offer appropriate student-centered instruction for students with identified mild to moderate learning needs through our Student Support Services.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a two-year program commencing in Grade 11. We can only accept IB Diploma students into Grade 12 provided they are coming from another IB school and can continue with their particular subject choices.
If a student's admission to ISK is not possible, however, it is most likely due to one or more of the following reasons:
- The class size has reached capacity.
- The student has severe learning needs which ISK cannot accommodate.
- The managed number of mild or moderate Learning Support students in the grade applied for is at its maximum.
- The student has a history of discipline, drug or alcohol problems.
- Other reasons which may be in the best interest of the school and the student as determined by the Principal or Director of ISK
