Introduction

A group of leading Nepalese educationists and entrepreneurs have come together 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) is being developed 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 I (One) to XII (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 will begin from the Academic Session 2075 BS (April 2018). However, admissions will be open only for grades I (One) to V (Five) and grade XI (Eleven) for the Academic Session 2075 (2018 AD).

The school possesses world–class infrastructure supported by state–of–the–art facilities. The buildings and facilities are spread over approximately 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 will be completed by March 2018 while the entire project will be completed by February 2019. The school will have a total capacity of 1,200 students of which 400 students will reside in the school hostel once the school becomes fully operational.
