Core Values

We believe in integrity and hard work undertaken with honesty, determination and a sense of commitment. We aim to ensure that our learners develop a positive attitude, and make informed choices with regard to their personal and social responsibilities.

We show compassion and kindness to one another. We express gratitude for what we have and do whatever is within our capacities to support those who are less fortunate or those who find themselves in difficult circumstances.

We respect the community, the environment and ourselves. We respect individual differences and accept all without prejudice. We take pride in our school and community. Our learners understand, appreciate and respect diversity and the importance of various cultures, values, traditions and perspectives.

We conduct ourselves in an exemplary manner and make positive choices with regard to our duties and work. We take responsibility for our own intellectual, social, personal and emotional development as well as physical wellbeing.

We work together in teams to achieve shared goals, and build relationships based on mutual respect and trust. We communicate effectively with each other and value feedback. Our learners will be able to communicate and express their ideas and views with clarity, and participate constructively in society in order to make positive contributions to the local and international community.

We embrace change, and continuously adapt to an ever-evolving environment. We believe in the power of inquiry emanating from curiosity, which leads to lifelong learning and fosters learners to become problem–solvers deeply engaged and involved with the world around them. Our learners are supported and constantly challenged to reach their full potential.

"KWS has been a great experience for us as parents. Our daughter has been admitted in grade four. Although we were a few months behind in enrollment and quite worried about her transition from a school in Canada, the wonderful cooperation and coordination of staffs and teachers made it possible for our daughter who is happily settled in and is energized to go to school. We believe that enrolling our daughter in KWS was a great decision, and we are very pleased and proud to say that our daughter goes to KWS.

"Our son has joined Kathmandu World School in grade 5. What attracted us to KWS was the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the overall infrastructural set-up in enabling a meaningful learning environment. The management and teachers are committed to working for a safe, joyful and engaging school experience for our son. The transition has been smooth and we are happy with the school.

"We feel incredibly blessed to have our daughter attending Kathmandu World School. As parents, we have always found the lines of communication between the faculty and ourselves open at all times which is very important to parents. We feel ‘heard’, and that our suggestions are valued and taken into account. The genuine affection and concern that the staffs show the children makes her feel she is “home away from home”.

Ms. Suja Basnet

Parent of Sunrita Basnet (Grade 6)

"We are very happy with the Kathmandu World School, its faculty and staff and the education that is being provided to our daughter. Experienced teachers, well designed curriculum and active teaching-learning activities that are appropriate to the child’s age and mental capacity makes KWS the best choice for children. As a business leader, I am very impressed with the immense development of our daughter in this short span of time. We would like to thank the whole KWS family for their guidance and support. Great job!
