KISC is an internationally accredited Christian school in Kathmandu, Nepal. It was founded in 1987 by United Mission to Nepal and International Nepal Fellowship to provide education to expatriate mission families in Nepal KISC is a K-13 international school in Nepal with both Middle States Association (MSA, American) and Cambridge International Examinations (British) accreditations. Established by United Mission to Nepal (UMN) and International Nepal Fellowship (INF) in 1987, KISC has become a reputed international Christian school in Nepal. In 2007, the Nepali NGO, Human Development and Community Services (HDCS), was awarded the ownership of KISC by the Government of Nepal’s Ministry of Education.

Our curriculum at KISC is based on standards that best fit our students at KISC. We use resources from around the world to serve our international students. Each class studies the following subjects: Art and Design Technology, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Literacy (reading, writing, grammar, spelling), Library Skills, Mathematics, Music, Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE), Physical Education (PE), Religious Education (RE), Science and World Around Us (geography, history, cultural studies).

We believe that the process of learning is as important as actual achievement. We aim to create a learning environment in which each student feels valued and where there is freedom to express ideas and opinions, which may be examined openly and objectively. We encourage independence as well as interdependence. Our learning process focuses not only on gaining knowledge but also on the development of critical thinking, creativity and acquisition of skills for life. As a result KISC students will become independent lifelong learners. We strive to provide students with opportunities to develop their gifts and talents through as many aspects of KISC life as possible: academically, socially, through sports and creative arts.
