'Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.'- Kofi Annan. There is no better way to pay back to society than providing the most desired and important infrastructure in the form of modern education. KIS aims at imparting not just knowledge but life skills that make our students stand on their own and achieve perfection in the career of their choice. We believe that irrespective of background every child is bestowed with unique abilities that need to be nurtured in a way that he can stride into the adult world confidently, responsibly and independently.
Knowledge is of no value unless put into practical use. We do not believe in confining the imagination of our students to the realm of a classroom. Our motto ‘Dream, explore, discover’ encourages the students to go beyond what is pre defined. We ignite the passion to learn and imagine through academics, co-curricular activities, sports and life skills learning so that we can rear a level of young minds that are bustling with self confidence and motivation. Moreover educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. So we inculcate human values like compassion, honesty, fortitude and perseverance in our students so that they can become the leaders of tomorrow.
We believe in the ancient Indian value of a student teacher relationship. Good communication, a safe learning environment, mutual respect, a positive and patient attitude, student equality and timely praise at KIS have positive implications for the students' academic and social development. We also give an equal importance to the training and development of our faculty members in today’s ever changing world.
KIS aims at giving every child a happy and successful future.
