KIS has articulated an intentional philosophy of education directed towards the development of global citizenship and based on care of the individual.
The central core of KIS programs is a holistic approach to the individual student and the knowledge and understanding of the benefits of exposing young people to a wide variety of experiences in a safe, structured and learning environment.
KIS Programs have traditionally included Music, Art, Drama, Dance, Hiking & Camping, Physical and Religious Education to extend and enrich the creative, cultural, environmental, social, physical and spiritual development of every student at KIS.
At KIS Elementary School, these programs are incorporated into every class and extracurricular activity. Children are encouraged to create, experiment, question, test, understand and develop themselves against the backdrop of opportunity provided by the school's unique location in South India.
