School Culture
and Educational Philosophy

ISK School Culture

The International Schools of Kenana has developed a robust and unique school culture that combines three different organizational styles, namely Hierarchy, Adhocracy, and Market approaches. However, the school confidently asserts that the prevailing culture within the institution is that of a Clan Culture.

This culture is characterized by leaders who act as facilitators, mentors, and team builders, driven by a commitment to communication and development. The school believes that continuous participation, support, and constructive feedback are essential factors for successful implementation. Our Whole School Approach centers on integrating academic achievement with character building through effective communication. We prioritize our students and prepare them to face the future with creativity, openness, and confidence. We believe that embracing problems and flaws as opportunities to grow is fundamental in shaping our students’ character.


At The International Schools of Kenana, the safety and security of our students are of utmost importance. We believe that students work better in a safe and secure environment, and therefore, we have put in place procedures to ensure that all stakeholders can deal with students in an appropriate and correct way in accordance with the school’s safety and child protection policy. The School Board, with its responsibility for ensuring the safety of every student, teacher, support staff, and admin, has established a code of guidelines, procedures, and policies that all personnel in the school must follow.

Parental Engagement

Parental engagement is a crucial aspect of our educational philosophy at The International Schools of Kenana. We encourage parents to be involved in the educational process, and our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) provides a platform for parents to offer suggestions. Parents are invited to become judges in school science fairs, and their valuable comments, along with external judges, are taken into consideration.

Parents also play an important role in sharing awareness campaigns where parents with relevant jobs to the topic being discussed volunteer and give sessions to the students.
