“See what our students, parents, alumni and faculty, both past and present, have to say about ISKL.”
At ISKL, we believe that all community members are an integral part of our ISKL family. We are honored to share some of these ISKL testimonials from across our community and invite you to see what makes learning, and working at ISKL, such a rewarding experience.
The Fike Family
Our Family is so grateful for the support and opportunities that ISKL has given our children. We are so proud of the mature global citizens our children have become while thriving in the ISKL community.
My first year as a middle school teacher has confirmed that ISKL lives up to its strong international reputation. What stands out immediately is that faculty, staff, and students, are genuinely excited to be here. It's an engaging and nurturing, yet challenging learning environment.
My husband and I are also impressed with the programs of study, activities, and extracurricular opportunities provided for our two daughters in the elementary school. In the past week alone our kids were able to work with a visiting poet in class, participate in several different after-school sports and clubs, and volunteer in a local children's hospital on the weekend.
At ISKL, there truly is a focus on the whole child. When our friends and family at home inquire about how our kids are adapting, the answer is always the same. They are thriving. We all feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of the ISKL family.
As an Alumnae of ISKL, I look back on my time at the school with much fondness and pride. I'll forever be thankful for the tireless dedication of the teachers and staff, the wide variety of activities available, and the overall warmth of the community. My family and I appreciate all that ISKL has done and provided for us over the years, and still continue to do so years after my graduation. It has been a great ride - thank you ISKL!
ISKL is like its own separate country; mixed with people of different races, religions, ethnicities and backgrounds from all across the world. I have grown to appreciate how interconnected the community is; how accepting students are of one another.
“Growing up within this international community has helped me strengthen my sense of identity. No matter what culture, ethnicity, religion or background you belong to, you're always going to be welcomed and valued. These experiences are like no other, and for that, I'm truly grateful for being at ISKL for all these years.
Hykl FamilyISKL distinguishes itself from our previous international schools experience by its ability to bring up children in a more realistic environment, which is so crucial for their future lives. It goes without saying that the academic standard of education is exceptionally high. The School has been extremely helpful, right from the beginning of our contact, in accommodating all the aspects of expatriate relocation. Thank you, we are very grateful for all of that.
Shamsi FamilyOur daughter Sehreen Shamsi and son Siam Shamsi are in ISKL while we are in Kuala Lumpur as expat for few years. While we loved to see our children learning and growing in a truly global campus of ISKL with peers from many countries of the world, we especially admired to see they are spending time on ‘humanity projects’ in their orientation to become responsible global citizens. Well it’s not only the students who belonged to ISKL Family, as Parents we felt in the last 2 years that my wife and I too belonged to ISKL Family. We felt it in international festivals, food carnivals, musical concerts and so on. Our family was even touched by the care of ISKL teachers and leaders during a crisis we encountered in our family in 2016. We Love ISKL!
Value of the IB
The IB helped mold me into a well-rounded person with an affinity for sport, the arts, and charity. The IB also appeals to top universities around the world and assisted me in securing places in King's College London and LSE. Public universities in Malaysia also accept the IB, which is a huge plus point.
Experience in ISKL
The scholarship certainly opened up new horizons for me. It was challenging at first, having only studied in a Malaysian public school. The teachers and staff were extremely welcoming and understanding though, that adapting was a breeze. We were encouraged to participate actively inside and outside the classroom, and various activities were organized for the benefit of the students, including in sport, charity and the arts. My time in ISKL helped mold me into who I am today, with charity playing a prominent role in my life. For all of this and more, I will forever be grateful to ISKL.
