Deciding where to send your child to school needs to be well considered and it is natural for parents and children to be concerned about how they will fit into a new school both academically and socially, especially when the child may have little to no familiarity with the English language.
The new purpose-built campus of The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) in Ampang Hilir was officially opened today by: YB Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah, Minister of Foreign Affairs Malaysia; YB Dr. Xavier Jayakumar, Minister of Water, Land and Natural Resources Malaysia; and YB Ms. Teo Nie Ching, Deputy Minister of Education Malaysia.
Over three tough, competitive sporting days, 150 visiting athletes from international schools across the region battled it out on the pitches of ISKL in the Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asia Schools (IASAS) Rugby (Boys) and Touch (Girls) Tournament.
I am confident that I can say our children have been given the absolute best start to their education and we will miss ISKL immensely. The Melawati Way has become part of the way that our family thinks about ourselves, each other and our environment both on and off the campus. This is a testimony to a school that walks the walk and doesn't just talk the talk.
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.
Overall, I must say that the ISKL IB education helped to prepare me to study at an international university as exposure to students of different backgrounds compelled me to integrate with others and to appreciate diverse cultures from around the world.
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.
