Welcome to QSI International School of Astana

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members:

Welcome to the QSI International School of Astana! We are excited to embark on a learning journey together. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who work so hard to make our school more than a place to come to from 8:00-4:00 each day, but a real community.

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members:

 

Welcome to the QSI International School of Astana! We are excited to embark on a learning journey together. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who work so hard to make our school more than a place to come to from 8:00-4:00 each day, but a real community. Each and every person at QSI Astana is committed to the very best for our children. This is a responsibility that we take seriously, while also having an enormous amount of fun!

Our number one task, in addition to a great education, is keeping children safe. Please take time to read through our Child Protection statements and policies, contained on this website. In addition to a world class education, we aim to educate that whole child. Seeing students grow academically and socially brings us all a great deal of pride and satisfaction.

It is with great pride that we are able to serve the wonderful community of Nur-Sultan. We look forward to seeing everyone at our many community events and throughout the year in support of your children. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

 

Best Regards

Mike Pettersch
