ISKR was formed in 2009 by a group of parents seeking an American style, non-denominational education of the highest standards for their children. Starting with just 15 students primarily from the Dutch and American communities, ISKR has now grown to 248 students representing over 45 nationalities.
Classes originally met in a converted hotel in the Kimihurura district of Kigali. Soon the need arose for more space and the school acquired three additional buildings in the neighborhood, one dedicated to the Preschool program.
In our fifth year, 2014, ISKR moved to a new campus in Nyarutarama, conveniently located near the MTN Center. The new campus boasts larger, light-filled classrooms and a self-contained Preschool section, as well as a new science lab and special use facilities for art and drama. An expanded library and media lab overlooking the beautiful hills and lake of Kigali fills the upper storey. We are also thrilled about our play spaces, which will include a new elementary playground and a full-sized basketball court.
ISKR offers a full curriculum for children ages 2 ½ to 18, which includes Advanced Placement classes in High School and an expanding number of sports and after-school activities. Electives include art, music, drama, photography, computers and Rwandan studies.
ISKR continues as a parent-owned school with priority given to fully engaging parents and students and to creating a warm sense of community.
