Established in 1965, The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) has become known as a centre of excellence in the world of international education. ISKL is a co-educational, private, not-for-profit school responsible for the learning journey of over 1,800 students aged 3-18 years from more than 65 countries at our state-of-the-art campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
ISKL offers a robust international curriculum which combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practice. The curriculum recognizes that students are on a lifelong learning journey and is driven by ISKL’s mission to challenge each student to “Be All You Are” and develop the attitudes, skills, knowledge, and understanding to become a highly successful, spirited, socially responsible global citizen.
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. High School students have even more choice this year with two innovative academic options, PRAXIS 2030 (Grade 9 and 10) and the Pursuits Program (Grade 11 and 12) added to the curriculum. Both focus on enhancing student agency and self-directed learning.
Students in Grade 11 and 12 also have the option of taking the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) that ISKL has offered since 1989. As the longest running World IB School in Malaysia, ISKL has seen more than 1,400 students graduate with an IB Diploma over the past 28 years, representing a ninety-six percent pass rate. This flexibility creates further education opportunities with ISKL students receiving acceptances from leading universities worldwide.
ISKL is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools (CIS), and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). ISKL has a strong focus on service and sustainability across its divisions and is a member of the Eco-Schools organization and the Green Schools Alliance.
