KIS ( Keystone International School ) is a unique, dynamic, boutique school in the heart of İstanbul. KIS offers an international K-12 program, which is accredited by WASC ( Western Association of Colleges ) and continues offering the highest standards of education. We see teaching and learning as a journey, where students are active participants who grow and develop both, academically and socially. The holistic and natural approach to learning brings together the child’s head, heart, and hands. Our curriculum is tailored to meet the educational needs of international students. Its aim is to encourage students to take action and become life-long learners in order to make the world a better and more peaceful place. Moreover, students have engaged actively in their learning process through projects, events and activities that connect education with real life.
