Beyond Classrooms

At ISKL, participation in a wide variety of co-curricular and student-selected activities is a vital part of our educational philosophy. Participation in co-curricular activities is a commitment on the part of each student, which impacts not only themselves, but also the school and the larger community. ISKL is a participating member of Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asian Schools (IASAS), International Schools Athletics Conference (ISAC), and International Schools Theater Association (ISTA).

We encourage all students to participate in our extensive range of activities in addition to their academic pursuits, recognizing that time management and balance are essential characteristics of success in all students.
