Type: A Co-Educational School (Early Childhood, Elementary School, Middle School and High School)

Curriculum: An international curriculum that combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practice. ISKL offers a range of high-quality, transdisciplinary pathways that enable every learner to choose the curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations. This includes two new programmes—PRAXIS 2030 (Grade 9 and 10) and Pursuits Program (Grade 11 and 12)—plus the choice at Grade 11 to undertake the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) or combine IB, Advanced Placement (AP) and High School Diploma courses.

Established: 1965

Accreditations and awards: ISKL is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools, and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It is Malaysia’s longest running IB World school, providing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme since 1989. In 2019, it won the International School Leader Awards for its unique Life-Centered Education Program, which supports students with intellectual and developmental differences. In 2021, ISKL won the UK’s International School Award in the ‘Well-being Initiative’ category and was shortlisted for the ‘School Providing Outstanding Relocation Support’ Award at the Think Global People and Relocate Awards 2021.

Campus and facilities: ISKL’s purpose-built 26-acre campus has world-class facilities including science, design and technology laboratories, dance and art studios, multi-sensory spaces, makerspaces, learning kitchens, libraries, rooftop garden, a 650-seat multi-purpose theatre and 700-seat performance theatre, an atrium amphitheatre, concert recital hall and collaborative learning spaces, plus indoor and outdoor sports complexes. It is the first school designed to achieve the Green Building Index Platinum rating in Malaysia, and serves as a laboratory for the study of environmentally sustainable practices.

Competitive advantage: Besides innovative learning programmes like PRAXIS 2030 and the Pursuits Program, which reimagines the learning experience, ISKL offers a flexible curriculum that allows students to tailor the educational programme to their abilities, interests, aspirations and university choices—a ‘best fit’ approach. Regardless of which pathway the student chooses, the curriculum provides strong academic results that consistently outperform regional and worldwide averages. Students are also challenged by interdisciplinary education opportunities such as High School’s Global Action Program and Middle School’s Malaysia Week Program which combine service learning and outdoor activities.
