Welcome to ISKR!


Murakaza neza. Welcome to the website for the International School of Kigali, Rwanda. ISKR is dedicated to delivering a world class international education in the heart of Africa; land of a thousand hills and a thousand smiles.

ISKR’s curriculum, based on an American-styled approach, draws on best practices from around the world. In Early Years we use the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) coupled with Montessori teaching methods. Grades 1 to 5 use the International Primary Curriculum(IPC) and meets the standards of American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and utilizes a Singaporean mathematics program. We use the International Middle Years Programme (IMYC) with our Middle School Students and High School will continue to offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses through the CAPSTONE programme. The ISKR High School Diploma is internationally recognised and accredited through The Council of International Schools (CIS) and Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges (MSA). More details of any of these programmes or any other curricular information can be found on the website or during a personal visit to the school.

While we are concerned with the academic achievement of our students, and offer an educational program that enables students to attend any university worldwide, we also strive to engage all students in their own learning and social awareness. We want our students to develop an appreciation of the host country and continent and to become true global citizens.

ISKR is a private, non-profit, parent-governed school with a warm community ethos. Please continue to browse our website and feel free to contact us.
