Employee Application Form

"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.
