Faculty and Staff

We believe in providing an aesthetically pleasing physical surrounding under the charge of a caring staff who believe their students will be successful, and who use time with the students as a resource for learning rather than as a boundary condition to determine when a unit of learning begins and ends. Educators at Kyiv International School are a highly-qualified, talented, experienced, and motivated group of professionals, who apply their best practices helping students to achieve their personal potential - intellectual, sporting, creative or service related. At KIS, our commitment to ongoing professional development sees us hosting a range of professional development workshops for our staff.
