KIIT has a successful track record in producing human resources with cutting edge competencies to succeed in the age of globalization. Schools have a vital role to play in present time as it has become important to nurture young minds from early on to prepare them to face challenges of future. KIIT has established KiiT International School to fulfill the gap of such institution in eastern India. KiiT International School focuses on quality education with human touch. A high teacher-student ratio of 1:8 and small class size of 16 students only make it possible to provide personalized attention to each student.

The CBSE curriculum has students from all parts of the country, while the IGCSE curriculum can have more than 300 international students. The school, which presently offers education from Kindergarten to Class IX level, has already been affiliated by CBSE. The IGCSE affiliation is forthcoming soon. While more than 150 foreign students will be enrolled upto Class IX in international curriculum, students from all parts of the country will also be joining in the coming academic year. The fees is reasonable, and is only a quarter of that charged by international boarding schools in India offering similar facilities.

The school uniquely promotes the integration of academic and co-curricular programmes, as well as the development of the informal curriculum where students are encouraged to build their personalities through learning and socio-cultural interaction. It focuses on innovative practical learning approaches, which make assimilation of lessons easy and reduce the burden of school bags. The school has established a huge science park with facilities for more than 115 scientific experiments as a part of this innovative pedagogy. Further, every year students go on a national and an international study tour.

An enabling infrastructure is a prerequisite for the quality education. Therefore, the very basic concept education in KiiT International School is driven towards giving the students an atmosphere in which they can learn, think and create. The physical infrastructure comprises of an independent, self-contained and wi-fi campus which holds in its lap spacious air conditioned classrooms with audio visual aids, activity based toys and models, science park, golf course and swimming pool with temperature control. The luxurious campus, at par with a 5-Star hotel, also provides adequate facilities for all indoor as well as outdoor games for the overall development of the students. These include a multigym, cricket, football, horse riding, table tennis, basket ball, etc. The students’ residence, which is also air conditioned, serves hygienic Indian and international cuisines.
