MISSION

The International School of Kuala Lumpur provides an exceptional education that challenges each student to develop the attitudes, skills, knowledge, and understanding to become a highly successful, spirited, socially responsible global citizen.

VISION

To walk in a harmonious environment where care follows closely behind; learning is stimulated, curiosity is sparked, vision is cultivated, and action is inspired.

SCHOOL-WIDE LEARNING RESULTS (SLRS)

ISKL’s School-Wide Learning Results (SLRs) are based on six learning outcomes that last a lifetime and enable our students to tackle the future with confidence: Think Creatively, Reason Critically, Collaborate Constructively, Communicate Effectively, Live Ethically, Learn Enthusiastically. Our SLRs are embedded within our curriculum and culture, and are a crucial component in ensuring our students are future-ready. From Elementary School to High School, developing and practicing these important skills is integral to an ISKL education.
