Parent Association

KSIB is proud to have an active parent association (ASOKSI). ASOKSI assists the school with planning special events such as Family Day and supports the school through fundraising efforts designated for specific improvement projects or initiatives. Recent projects that ASOKSI have helped fund include walkway roofing and the installation of additional security cameras.

Parent Involvement

We believe that the most successful schools have strong relationships among teachers, administrators and parents. In addition to opportunities to get involved with ASOKSI, the school regularly hosts a number of parent education conferences on topics ranging from early childhood literacy, adequate technology uses at home, and adolescent issues such as substance abuse, study habits, and the university application process.

The school also holds parent-teacher conferences after each report card distribution so that parents can meet with teachers and ask questions about their child’s progress. Regular coffee morning sessions with the leadership team are also held in order for parents to understand the latest developments at the school and to ask any questions to the school administration.

Social Program

KSIB gives underprivileged children the opportunity to study on the campus. The majority of these students are children of labourers who work in the nearby farms and nurseries. KSIB is proud to support these families with a full-day educational programme, being able to access a high quality education and resources and share with KSIB students.

At KSI Bogota we believe every child is unique, and our leading preschool programme focuses on supporting a young child’s social and emotional wellbeing. The preschool programme provides a bilingual learning environment, with full English immersion for children 4-7.

Recognised by the Great Place to Study for happiness, KSI Bogota strives to create a nurturing and inspiring learning environment where your child’s curiosity is placed at the center of their growth.

  • Social and emotional skills are developed to support their emerging independence.
  • The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme is followed from reception, offering children a range of practical and creative activities and develops oral, literacy and numeracy skills as well as placing emphasis on independence and social interaction.
  • The preschool programme has been carefully tailored for children, laying the strong foundations that help to prepare them for their transition into the primary years and secondary years.

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.

It is a framework guided by six interdisciplinary themes of global significance. Students deepen their learning by developing their conceptual understandings, strengthening their knowledge and skills across and beyond subject areas.

Themes are explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas (All subjects are seen in English, except Spanish and Physical Education):

  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Arts (Music, Dance & Visual)
  • Personal, Social and Physical Education

The school year is divided into six units that follow the transdisciplinary themes of the PYP. All six subject areas are integrated into each Unit of Inquiry.

The six transdisciplinary themes of the PYP are:

  1. Who we are
  2. Where are we in place and time
  3. How we express ourselves
  4. How the world works
  5. How we organize ourselves
  6. Sharing the planet

The Middle Years Programme, years 7-11 provides a framework of learning which encourages students to establish practical connections between their studies and the real world. The framework encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Inspired by the IB philosophy, students are taught the Colombian curriculum,  with a focus around the personal, social and academic needs of the child. MAP Testing is administered periodically during the school year to help improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child’s academic growth. During their middle years students take part in LIFE classes promoting social and emotional wellbeing. 

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is offered to years 12 &13 and is aimed at preparing students for success at university and life beyond and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. The curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Students in Secondary School take the below classes:
