This is needed to ensure a smooth and fully supported transition to the school and is by no means a “pass/fail” test. Parent interviews will also take place to ensure that their outlook towards education is in alignment with the school’s values and learning goals.

"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”.

"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!
