Introduction

A group of leading Nepalese educationists and entrepreneurs has collaborated to establish a semi-residential school of an international standard in order to provide a high-quality holistic education for boys and girls of five to nineteen years. Thus, Kathmandu World School (KWS) has been established at Surya Binayak – 7, Gundu, Bhaktapur, a serene and peaceful location, conducive to creating a unique learning environment. Located approximately 12 kilometers away from the noise and clamor of Kathmandu city, the school will provide a full-fledged high school programme from grades 1 (One) to 12 (Twelve) following the National Curriculum of Nepal and also the Cambridge International A Level programme under the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), University of Cambridge, UK. Academic programmes commence from the Academic Session 2075 BS (April 2018). However, for the Academic Session 2075 (2018), admissions were taken for grades 1 to 5, and will be open for grade 11 (Plus 2).

The school possesses world–class infrastructure supported by the state–of–the–art facilities. The buildings and facilities are spread over 55 ropanis of land, endowed with abundant natural beauty. The school campus is bordered by lush green forested areas on the north, east and south and local residences on the west of the school. The first phase of construction has been completed while the entire project is tentatively scheduled to attain completion by February 2019. The school will have a total capacity of 1,200 students of which there is provision for 400 students to reside in the school hostel once the school becomes fully operational.
