Small class sizes, an attractive, well-resourced location and vibrant teaching all contribute to an educational environment that enables students to achieve success.

Student numbers have increased from 20 students when we opened in 2011, to over 250 students in 2018, with new students joining every term. Sixty percent of students are American, Asian and European citizens, who are children of employees of embassies, international organizations and international business or NGOs. Forty percent of students are Kyrgyz citizens. The school welcomes all students regardless of ability, gender, ethnicity, language, or religious belief and everyone is encouraged to take part in all school activities.
