Adapting to the Needs of our Campus Community

Almaty International School is committed to providing healthy and safe learning environments for our students and staff.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the school has implemented best practices and guidelines recommended by the World Health Organization and the United States Center for Disease Control.  We offer three purposeful learning models, each designed to meet the needs of of our campus community. 

On Campus Learning

All Students
When COVID-19 risk levels are deemed to be low, the school will return to our regular daily schedule with all students on campus five days a week.

Under this model, COVID-19 health and safety best practices and guidelines will continue to be followed.

Blended Learning
Kyiv International School will work to accommodate students who are unable to return to campus due to health concerns.

Hybrid Learning

When COVID-19 risk levels are deemed to be moderate, the school will follow the Hybrid Learning Model. 

Preschool and Elementary School
All students will be on campus full time, five days a week.  Preschool classes are limited in size to accommodate social distancing and safe peer interaction. Elementary homeroom classes will be split into two different groups allowing for smaller class sizes and increased social distancing.

Middle & Secondary School
Students will attend classes every day but alternate between learning on campus (in person) and online (from home).

Distance Learning

When COVID-19 risk levels are deemed to be high, the school will follow the Distance Learning Model. 

Students meet online in short 15 - 30 minute blocks for Literacy and Mathematic activities.

The rest of the day is dedicated to Home Enrichment activities.

Elementary School
Students meet online in the morning for Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Cultural Studies and Science.  

The afternoon schedule includes Languages Other than English, Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education.

Middle & Secondary School
The schedule for Middle School and Secondary School students is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning.  

The mornings will be dedicated synchronous online classes; the entire class meets to receive instruction, discuss material, and work through a variety of assignments or projects in their class.  

The afternoon will be flexible asynchronous time. Students can drop-in to office hours and work on assignments as needed.  Teachers can organize one-on-one meetings or small group lessons.
