Set among lush rolling hills in the fast-growing city of Iskandar, Malaysia, Raffles American School campus accommodates pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students. The 19-hectare school is envisioned as a holistic learning environment that is seamlessly interwoven into its beautiful setting. Given the slope of the site, The campus consists of three main “terraces,” with each terrace occupied by a cluster of grade levels.
Our facilities include technology-integrated classrooms, science labs, visual art, dance and performing arts studios, as well as a performing arts center including a 800 seater auditorium and a black box theater. Our library caters toward students of various reading levels and abilities.
