Oxford International School
Oxford International School is a newly established school which opened its doors in September 2015 in Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyzstan situated between China and Kazakhstan. The student body is made up largely of local children with some students from a range of other nationalities.

Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful country and is known as the home of the Mountains. Nearly 90% of the country's land mass is mountainous, however those areas that are not are full of rolling hills and stunning lakes and rivers. A historic nation with an ancient culture there is plenty to occupy an inquisitive mind. Kyrgyzstan is an independent democratic country with a population of 5 million people. A Multinational and multi-cultural country there is much diversity within the population with religious freedoms. The people are warm and friendly, open and honest with a comparatively easy going mentality. The capital city Bishkek is located in the North of the country not far from the border with Kazakhstan. It is a city of wide boulevards and marble-faced public buildings combined with numerous Soviet style apartment blocks surrounding interior courtyards and outside the city centre thousands of smaller privately built homes. Laid out on a grid pattern it is easy to get around with most streets flanked by innumerable trees that offer shade in the hot summers.
This is a very ambitious school seeking recognition both locally and nationally for its high academic excellence and achievement and with school places in high demand it is expected to grow rapidly in the coming year as we add more classes including the senior year groups up to post 16. The school offers Cambridge approved education programmes for both the primary and secondary sections and is the first school in Kyrgyzstan to be awarded COBIS recognition.
