KIS International School


Alison Yang

MYP Coordinator

With OpenApply, we now have a clear admissions overview. Everyone on the team can see the status and files of each applicant, as well as the communication between admissions staff, parents, and any other relevant notes. We are also wasting a lot less paper!"

Established in 1998, KIS International School offers the full continuum of International Baccalaureate programmes to students from age 3 to 18. The school now serves over 600 students from 47 nationalities.

KIS receives more than two hundred applications each year, all originally processed using paper. In 2010, KIS chose to take the process online. The admissions team tried two other providers before implementing OpenApply in 2013.

KIS uses nearly 20 different forms to collect information, and processes over 200 applications each year. Before OpenApply, they were manually managing over 4,000 paper forms!

Centralised Data

OpenApply’s centralised database enables the KIS admissions team to easily track information such as number of incoming enquiries, applications, and assessments booked. All team members have access to the database, which means:

  • More accurate information
  • Improved internal communication
  • Easier reporting

Prospective parents love OpenApply’s easy-to-use parent interface.

  • Auto-fill: Saves parents time by automatically completing duplicate information across forms.
  • Checklists: Allow parents to upload required documents directly to the system and track remaining admissions requirements.
  • Anywhere & any device: Sleek, modern interface works on all devices, perfect for international parents on the go.
