Welcome to the World of International Education at ISKL
Established in 1965, The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) has become known as a centre of excellence in the world of international education. ISKL is a co-educational, private, not-for-profit school responsible for the learning journey of over 1,700 students aged 3-18 years from more than 65 countries at its campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
ISKL offers a robust international curriculum which combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practice. The curriculum recognizes that students are on a lifelong learning journey and is driven by ISKL’s mission to challenge each student to Be All You Are and develop the attitudes, skills, knowledge, and understanding to become a highly successful, spirited, socially responsible global citizen.
ISKL is the longest running IB World School in Malaysia and has been authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to provide the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) since 1989. In August 2020, two new innovative High School curriculum options, PRAXIS 2030 and Pursuits Program will be offered. Both focus on enhancing student agency and self-directed learning.
ISKL is also the only school in Malaysia to offer this range of high-quality, transdisciplinary pathways which enable every learner to choose the curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations. Options available include PRAXIS 2030 (for Grade 9 to Grade 10 students), Pursuits Program, the full IB Diploma, or a bespoke combination of individual IB, Advanced Placement, and High School Diploma courses. This flexibility creates global further education opportunities with ISKL’s students receiving acceptances from leading universities worldwide.
ISKL is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools (CIS), and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). ISKL has a strong focus on service and sustainability across its divisions and is a member of the Eco-Schools organization and the Green Schools Alliance.
