Dear JISK Community,
The first day of school is quickly approaching and we are excited to finally see our precious Jewels. Our first day of school will be on September 6th, 2021 (regular school timings apply). We would like to remind you of the following:
- If you are arriving from international travel after August 31st, we may require proof of a PCR test for any child resuming school.
- Please note that only one adult will be allowed to accompany their child/ren in school. All other adults must remain inside their vehicle. No mask, no entry. Ø
- If your child has a cough, sore throat, runny nose fever, and/or any other ailment, please do not send them to school; we will call you immediately to pick your child up if you do.
- If your child develops a fever during the course of a school day, you will be immediately informed, and your child will be isolated..
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.
