International School of Kenya

PO Box 14103, Nairobi, 00800 Kenya

Both the curriculum and the school organization of ISK reflect conditions found at college preparatory schools in North America. Children learn Kiswahili in kindergarten through grade 3 and choose either French or Spanish in grades 4 and 5. Middle school students meet with an academic advisor four times each week. As an alternative to the standard US diploma, students in grades 11 and 12 may pursue the International Baccalaureate Diploma. IB courses are open to everyone. An intercultural program exposes students to the people, the culture and the environment of East Africa. Campus activities, reading and research prepare students for a variety of field trips, including visits to Kenyan tribal societies, a climb of Mount Kenya, and the study of Indian Ocean marine life and the ecosystem of a national park. High school students perform at least 15 hours of required community service each year.
