Here we are again at the end of another fun-filled term. As is common place at JISK, we have laughed, we have cried, we have learnt, and we have come together as a community. As we approach the holiday season, I just wanted to wish all of you love, light and most importantly good health. Let us take this time to appreciate the uniqueness of each of our precious Jewels and every person who works tirelessly to ensure that JISK is the great school that it is.
In the spirit of achievements, I wanted to share with you that my parents, Mr. & Mrs. Munshi, were awarded the 'Medaille D'OR' for 50 years of service in this marvelous country we are so grateful to call home.
From all of us at JISK, have a safe and restful holiday and a Happy New Year!

Best wishes for 2024,
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.
