Jewels International School of Kinshasa (JISK) is a multicultural school comprised over 800 students representing over 20 different nationalities. This level of diversity is unparalleled in the DRC and provides our students with plenty of opportunity to learn valuable lessons. JISK prides itself in being more like a community rather than an institution. We work hard to ensure that your children are not only "educated" in the simplest definition- to be able to read and write and reason, but also to educate them in being conscious, global citizens who are able to succeed in an ever changing world.
JISK is privately owned and founded in 1972 by Najma and Ishaque Munshi due to the demand of families who wanted affordable, quality English education.
JISK, which was then called Little Jewels, started in a small garage adjacent to the Munshi residence with only five toddlers. As the student body grew, so did the school. In September 2000, construction of the existing school building was completed on two hectares of land. In 2004 JISK opened a French section offering instruction to students according to the French system of education. The school is a double story building located in the Commune of N'galiema, a residential area, 20 minutes away from down town Kinshasa.
