Accredited by the Middle States Association (MSA) and a proud member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), KBS embodies a commitment to nurturing leaders of tomorrow through a rigorous and enriching International Baccalaureate (IB) framework. Offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP), with candidacy for the Diploma Programme (DP), KBS cultivates a holistic, inquiry-based learning environment designed to foster intellectual growth, ethical understanding, and a deep sense of global responsibility.

I have been a school-level user of Schrole for recruiting for the last three hiring cycles and have found the platform they provide to be intuitive and comprehensive. The user interface stands out from others in the market as a crisp interface with the right level of features included at the right places. For me, the top two features are the ability to create school-specific application questions for applicants, and the availability of a short and long form applicant documentation PDF. If you’re looking for a recruiting platform, I highly recommend considering Schrole.
