While being within central Bishkek, not far from the Bishkek Humanitarian University on Chyngyz Aitmatov Ave./Gagarin St., the actual school location is in a quiet residential area well away from the traffic fumes and other dangers of major roads. This is a wonderful safe place for children to spend the day.

One of the main reasons for choosing this site was the large outdoor play area. We have a full size basketball court and a real grass field for soccer and other games, giving students the space they need to play and enjoy themselves at break times. Development of the school site has avoided building over play areas, so that our school still has the largest outdoor play area of any international school in Bishkek.

All buildings and facilities are designed and constructed for strong earthquake standards, fire safety and student security. Winter heating has back-up options, including a generator for the occasional power outages.

School teaching facilities include:

  • Seven Primary Form classrooms
  • Ten Specialist Teaching Rooms
  • Art and Music room for Primary
  • Art Room for Middle/High School
  • Library/Resources Room for Primary
  • Library/Resources Room for Middle/High School
  • Dance & Drama Hall
  • Large Multi-purpose hall for indoor sports and school performances
  • Two Science Laboratories
  • Full kitchen to serve the preschool/early primary dining room and the main school café
  • Three preschool classrooms for different age groups
  • A dedicated outdoor playground for Preschool
