The Kilmore International School is modelled on international schools overseas. It was established in 1990 to provide a true and exceptional international education for students, whether local or from abroad. The Kilmore International School has an impressive record of academic success in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. As a boarding school and home to students from around the world, pastoral care lies at its heart. The Heads and Homeroom teachers know their students thoroughly. We provide a rich variety of co-curricular activities to foster experiential learning and leadership.The buildings of the school were originally built in 1887 by the Marist Brothers of the Catholic Church and became Assumption College. The new owners completely renovated and modernised the existing buildings. New classrooms including a library, science wing, drama and music studios, art rooms, computer laboratories, general classrooms along with staffrooms were added over the next twenty years as well as a modern dormitory for girls. In 2011, a state-of-the-art Language Learning Centre was opened. The school grounds now contain 2 soccer fields, basketball courts, cricket facilities and tennis courts.
Since opening in 1990 with two international students, we have grown from strength to strength. Our alumni are employed by leading corporations around the globe. We have a vibrant community of graduates who remain close friends with staff and fellow students. Even though the alumni form a diaspora in many nations they are linked by the experience of completing their IB Diploma together at The Kilmore International School. Our ethos of dedicated, small classes continues as our students numbers have grown to over 400.

In 2015 we celebrate our 25th anniversary as one of the most successful IB world schools in the southern hemisphere and the success of our graduates, both locally and globally, makes us all enormously proud.

As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
The primary benefit for working here is that teachers can either choose to teach students (who choose) to be part of an accelerated course or normal-paced course. The teacher/student ratio is 1:10, so it allows teachers to focus more time on individual students – less grading and more teaching the course, so there’s no fear of falling behind as in other schools with a large student population.
What areas do you feel are in need of development?
I don’t feel there is any need for development when it comes to this school.
What advice would you give to other teachers considering working at this school?
If you’re into small classes and a choice to teach in either an accelerated program or normal pace with great administration and student body, then this is the place to teach.
I certify that this review is my own opinion based on my personal experience of this school. I understand that International Schools Advisor may remove this review if it is found to be in breach of the site's Terms & Conditions.
