Hello and welcome to Jesselton International School. We offer a superb education to children from kindergarten, IGCSE and A Level. We focus on academic strength; our aim is for children to enjoy learning, to be curious and to make critical thinking a habit while achieving the scholastic success they require to progress to further education and satisfying careers.

It is important that children also develop a strong sense of moral and social responsibility. As JIS is ethnically and culturally diverse, we promote respect for self and the origins, as well as the views and aspirations of peers. We instil appreciation for the natural world, especially in the fantastically ecologically diverse region in which we are situated. Through classes and also through our wide variety of extracurricular options and sports, we develop flexibility, responsibility, and productive interaction within groups.

We are known as a welcoming and caring school community. Our teachers are patient and selfless, and are here because they want to educate and see their students develop intellectually, morally and socially. Our teachers constantly look at interesting ways and new angles from which to present the material. They think about what each child needs and always try to help the child develop the concepts in a topic; this leads to deeper understanding and far greater aptitude in applying understanding to solving problems. JIS teachers are also sent regularly to Cambridge professional development courses.

At JIS, your children are encouraged and helped to aim higher and to achieve their best. It’s great that you are here reading this, we hope your children come and make their academic home with us. Please do come and meet us at Jesselton International School to find out more.
