Network International School was established by Mrs. Carole Kyaing and her husband, U Kyaing, in 1996 as Network Early Childhood Care and Development Centre. Carole comes from England and has a background in early childhood education. Her husband, originally from Myanmar, worked as a consultant for Binnie and Partners in England. They moved to Yangon in 1990. Network began as a nursery school with just six children, all from different nationalities. As the demand for Network’s education increased, parents asked Carole to take the next step and provide primary education. The first Reception students began in 2002; the Primary school started in 2003, with a curriculum based on the British National Curriculum but adapted for the international nature of the students. Network now goes up to Year 11, with students studying to complete their IGCSE qualifications. There are over 732 students from 52 different nationalities, approximately half of whom are Myanmar. This rich diversity of cultures, beliefs and backgrounds encourages a wider worldview and the opportunity to share a broad range of experiences.
