Sekolah Methodist Wesley or Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International) was originally known as Kolej Methodist Sentul Campus. The Presidential Task Force set up by the Methodist Church in Malaysia in 1976, recommended that the character of Methodist Private Schools, which had provided a second chance for dropouts from the government system, be transformed, in order to provide quality education.
Implementing such a proposal entailed identifying persons of calibre and dedication. To accept the challenge, Mrs F. R. Bhupalan, a well known educationist, responded to the call, and, with the assistance of Mr J.B. Vanniasingham as Director of Studies and Mr David Gunaratnam as Deputy Principal, Methodist College Brickfields was established.
The College made its debut in January 1983 offering places for students from Form 1 to Form 5. Simultaneously GCE A-Level classes in Science and Arts were introduced. There were also the students of Methodist High School to be phased out. It was an arduous task coordinating three different types of curriculum under one roof with a mixed bag of teachers and limited resources. Its evolution into what it is today was a slow process.
As early as 2003, noticing the potential and enthusiasm in the young students, the Principal was inspired to embark on yet another building project to provide the children with better facilities. After much discussion and planning, the Management Board, with the blessings of Bishop Datuk Dr Peter Chio and the Council of Education, decided to go ahead with this project to put up a five storey block with the best possible facilities that are expected in a top-notch private secondary school to provide a conducive and spacious environment for the students to maximize their potential. This building project (a five storey block) comprising classrooms, Science Labs, Computer Labs, Staff Rooms, a Conference Room, Administration Office, Sick Bay and a large Multipurpose Hall with Elevator Service was started in 2005.
The school is one of the most sought after Private Secondary Day Schools in the country, with hundreds of aspiring students being turned away each year because of lack of places.
Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International) takes pride in providing a well balanced all-round education with strong emphasis on character development based on good moral values, culminating in academic excellence with a high standard of discipline. For Wesley Methodist School, with these two dynamic, experienced and knowledgeable educationists at the helm, the best is yet to be.
Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur (International) will continue to strive to be HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST.
