The Kilmore International School
The Kilmore International School is modelled on international schools overseas. It was established in 1990 to provide a true and exceptional international education for students, whether local or from abroad. The buildings of the school were originally built in 1887 by the Marist Brothers of the Catholic Church and became Assumption College.
The buildings and grounds were purchased by the current owners in the 1980s. The new owners completely renovated and modernised the existing buildings. New classrooms including a library, science wing, drama and music studios, art rooms, computer laboratories, general classrooms along with staffrooms were added over the next twenty years as well as a modern dormitory for girls. In 2011, a state-of-the-art Language Learning Centre was opened. The school grounds now contain 2 soccer fields, basketball courts, cricket facilities and tennis courts.
From 1990 through to 2009, the school offered secondary education only. Due to increased demand for high quality education in the local area, students in Years 5 and 6 were admitted in 2010 and Years 3 and 4 in 2015. Their goal is to develop a full Primary school in the coming years.
Since opening in 1990 with two international students, they have grown from strength to strength. Their alumni are employed by leading corporations around the globe. They have a vibrant community of graduates who remain close friends with staff and fellow students. Even though the alumni form a diaspora in many nations they are linked by the experience of completing their IB Diploma together at The Kilmore International School. Their ethos of dedicated, small classes continues as their students numbers have grown to over 400.
In 2015 they celebrate their 25th anniversary as one of the most successful IB world schools in the southern hemisphere and the success of their graduates, both locally and globally, makes us all enormously proud.
