Dear JISK Community,
We sincerely hope that you and your families are well during these unprecedented times. As you aware, we will have to keep JISK closed until further notice. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and following guidance from our local authorities.
During the foreclosure, JISK educators have created remote learning, in the form of google classroom, which we expect you to be able to access daily (beginning April 6th, 2020). This will ensure that our precious jewels will be able to complete the academic year and will be well equipped for the consequent grade level. Your child’s class teacher will be communicating to you their google class code. Please ensure that you have a ‘gmail’ email address in order to be able to log in to google classroom. If you need help, you can reach out to your child’s class teacher.
Jewels International School of Kinshasa (JISK) is privately owned and was founded in 1972 due to the demand of families who wanted affordable, quality English education. JISK began in a small garage adjacent to the Munshi Residence with only five toddlers. As the student body grew, so did the school.
In September 2002 construction for the new school building was completed on 2 hectares of land. JISK is now a double story building situated in the Commune of Ngaliema, a residential area, ten minutes from Kinshasa's city center.
JISK guarantees each student the right to a superior education, in a friendly, safe, culturally rich, and stimulating environment; we strive to create a climate where each student and parent feels welcomed, respected, and trusted, and an important part of JISK. Each student will be provided with quality instruction and challenging learning experiences to foster lifelong learning and responsible citizenship.
At JISK , we have a continues flow of events and activities for our students as well as our extended community for better engagement and socialising.
We like to keep the parents of our student body informed of the various updates and happenings within the school. Keeping them involved with us throughout the school year.
JISK is a multicultural school comprised over 800 students representing over 20 different nationalities. This provides our students with plenty of opportunity to learn valuable lessons.
