The International Islamic School (IIS) was established in September 1998 and it was then located in Batu 14 Jalan Gombak.
It was the fruit of years of study by Muslim scholars from various parts of the world who ever teaching in the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) and who thirst for a model integrated Islamic school that could serve their children and also those of others, especially Muslim expatriates.
The idea of the school was sparked in the mid-1990s by Dato’ Dr Abdul Hamid Abu sulayman, the Rector of IIUM then. The school is thus, a testimony to the university’s continuous effort in providing quality, affordable, balanced, integrated and holistic education guided by the principles of Islam.
As an Islamic school, we emphasize on a integrated and balanced human development (intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, emotional and social) based on the Islamic World View anchored on Tawhid (the unity of God).
