HEAD OF SCHOOL WELCOME
Selamat Datang – Welcome to ISKL!
At ISKL, we deeply believe in the importance of the role our school plays in working in partnership with parents and preparing our students to lead happy and fulfilled lives. Whilst it is impossible to know for certain what their future will hold, we do know that ensuring our students have the academic and social-emotional skills needed to thrive in an increasingly agile world and the ability to navigate diverse environments is critical.
Nurturing their academic growth is, of course, a fundamental component of our role, and our competitive results in the International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, and a range of standardized assessments are testament to the high-quality learning we provide. Equally important, is the role we play in helping students develop the skills and mindsets they need to understand themselves, learn how to take care of their social and emotional well-being, care for others, and contribute positively to the world. Each of these elements is reflected in ISKL’s Vision and Mission which guides us in all we do.
Integral to ISKL’s Vision and Mission, is our focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) and our commitment to creating a safe and courageous culture for all community members. Our education support system has been specifically designed to meet the differing needs of our learners and is complemented by a caring and inclusive culture that nurtures student identities.
We have an inspiring team of forward-thinking international educators who are experts in their field and skilled in creating stimulating, caring, and appropriately challenging environments for all learners both in and out of the classroom. Educational research confirms that students progress faster when they are interested and engaged in learning and we offer a wide range of options and opportunities for students to explore their passions and interests and empower them to have a ‘voice and choice’ in their own learning. In addition to our innovative and flexible curriculum, we are also extremely proud of our world-class sustainability and service learning opportunities, participation in local and regional sporting events, and our arts and forensics programs.
Data from current students, parents, alumni, and accreditation agencies, highlight ISKL’s uniqueness as a place that fosters student well-being and provides experiences they cherish throughout their lives. We look forward to welcoming you to our award-winning campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and having the opportunity to share what makes ISKL such a special place with your family.
