About The British International School, Ukraine
The British International School, Ukraine is a co-educational independent all-through school. It is based in Kiev in Ukraine.
The school was founded in 1997 and was the first such school to offer a British style of education in Ukraine. It originally started as a single campus in the Nivki area of Kiev to serve the needs of a growing expatriate population looking for an international education for their children. It operates under the umbrella of the Advanced British Education Group and is registered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations Organisation as a Cambridge International Centre. In recent years, the school has expanded to include a campus in the Pechersk region of Kiev. In addition, the school is working towards becoming an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program authorised school and has plans to do the same for the International Baccalaureate Diploma when it comes to its high school.
