It has been such a privilege to be able to go to ISKL. ISKL’s academics are amazing. ISKL hires top-notch teachers who know their stuff and have a passion for teaching. I have learned so much that within a month and a half into the school year, I am already halfway through my notebooks. Yet, ISKL’s homework and grading systems have an emphasis on learning, not perfection. There are many levels of classes, so all students can attend classes they can feel challenged but not overwhelmed. ISKL is such a good school that colleges all over the world come to ISKL to inform our students about their college. In addition, ISKL offers so many extracurriculars that it proves to be a challenge to pick as there are only five days in a week!

Not only does ISKL have top-notch academics and extracurricular activities, but the institution itself is very nice, the building is spacious, clean, and modern. The options for not only lunch but also breakfast and snacks are extensive, delicious, and healthy.

ISKL has such a positive and loving community. If any students are nervous about going to a new school, they have nothing to worry about. ISKL is my tenth school and I have never had a warmer welcome. ISKL went out of their way to show us to our classes (during the tour and during school), help us with all technology needed for school, and make sure we felt comfortable and included. In fact, the school has a club of peer helpers that help new ISKL students adjust to the new school.

What had been most challenging in our relocating process was to find the right school for our son. We put our trust in ISKL for its reputation and good word of mouth by parents of ISKL alumni. Nevertheless, concerns lingered on, as it was a big transition from a small to such a large-scale school with a different curriculum taught. However, all the anxieties seemed to disappear from day one of on-site learning. The invaluable support provided by the teachers and staff has made my son feel most welcomed and well-embraced in the ISKL community.

Eva B.

A well organized, structured, and equipped school that provides a healthy, safe, friendly, and multicultural education environment. The level of support in all areas, especially regarding the transition of newcomers, is high.

Tatiana Sultzbach

Relocating to another country thousands of miles away from our support system has been an adventure. With that said, finding a school for our second grader in the middle of the school year was simply intimidating. However, the exceptional team of leaders at ISKL put all our fears at ease with their empathetic and knowledgeable approach. Weeks before our arrival in Kuala Lumpur, ISKL’s Admissions team made themselves available to guide us and answer any questions, despite the vast time difference. We were impressed with their organized application and enrollment processes, their COVID response to ensure a safe environment for all, the beautiful campus, and most importantly, their strong commitment to shaping citizens of the world through their comprehensive curriculum. Now that we are here, we consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to be part of the diverse and inclusive community ISKL foments.

Jon H.

The inclusive culture at the school, the approachability of the Heads, the incredible developmental resources offered to the students, for example, the counselors, Speech Therapy, etc. and the brand new state-of-the-art learning environment for students to enjoy. ISKL has played an enormous role in our son’s education and development and our family’s experience as expatriates in Malaysia. We are enormously appreciative and grateful for the opportunity provided by ISKL.

We received several recommendations from ISKL parents. They told us it was a great school, probably a school like no others, where the environment is kind and open-handed. Everyone takes care of everyone. At first, we were worried because the school had way more students than our previous schools, however, on the first day, everyone welcomed you, helped you, and supported you to make you feel at home. We feel like ISKL is a very positive school, “teamwork makes the dream work!” as people say. New students feel like everyone is on the same boat, same journey, no matter the culture, belief, or country you come from.

The school was strongly recommended to us by ISKL parents, as a kind, positive, and very supportive school. And it is, indeed. At first, we were worried because the school had way more students than our previous schools, however, on the first day, everyone welcomed us, helped us, and supported us to make us feel at home. We also as parents felt warmly welcomed, by the staff, the teachers, and the parents. One day that I felt ashamed of asking another question to a staff member, I got this answer: “Never ever stop asking the questions, that’s what I am here for.” I’ll never forget it and this represents for me the values and philosophy of the school.

Oskar & Ada R.

From the top management, through administration, teachers, assistants, helpers, cleaners and guards, we have seen and experienced nothing but an amazing dedication to everyone’s job, all living the ISKL vision by heart! By this, ISKL is building a safe and secure basis for the children. My kids have grown tremendously over the last 18 months, within every subject at school, and through social interaction with people from all over the world. Every organization, within all different industries across the globe, would benefit from looking into how ISKL runs as an organization. It is with deep sadness; however, also with great memories, we are to leave ISKL. Until we meet again!

Susan Li

ISKL is our family’s 5th international school. I compare ISKL to a fine, well-oiled machine. From the start of the process with the incredible admissions team when we were applying for entry of our three high school and middle school children, ISKL has demonstrated the utmost professionalism, communication and a truly warm welcome, which we have not seen to this degree in our 15 years living overseas. The unconditional love, and support that is a paradigm of ISKL’s program for all of their students is apparent and our transition has been the smoothest transition yet. Our family is so fortunate to be a part of the ISKL family.

Parent of a HS student

The ISKL community has not only been welcoming towards my daughter but also to our family by extension. As a parent, it has been a joy to see my daughter blossom, thrive, and enjoy the full experience of learning in ISKL. As the IB program is known to be a demanding and rigorous program, all my earlier concerns were dispelled, having seen how the school not only supported her academically but also gave my daughter a platform to discover new skills and untapped talent that we never knew she had before. It’s wonderful to have teachers and friends who are so encouraging and supportive of their learning journeys. Thank you, ISKL, for nurturing students to strive for excellence and to know the importance of having a healthy study, work, play life balance, and to be conscientious and active global citizens.

Jesse and Irma

It has been very positive and a real pleasure to be part of the ISKL community for these years. Our daughter has enjoyed being a student there and we have been very happy with the philosophy of the school and the people that work there. The teachers have been loving, kind, and thoughtful and their feedback on our daughter and the work they put into her was much appreciated.

Parent of an ES student

It was the first international schooling experience for my son. Needless to say that it was a very interesting journey for him. My family highly appreciated ISKL’s efforts to teach my son to explore new things for him, and do many other things.

Debi & Jimmy Fairman

We have been overseas for 22 years and this was our sixth international school – ISKL is the BEST school we have encountered, for a variety of reasons. The top-notch facilities are what catch your eye to start, but then families quickly figure out they have top-notch leadership, faculty, and staff implementing their rock-solid mission and vision to complete the package. Every teacher is steeped in the guiding principles of the school and it shows. I am only sorry we could only be in Malaysia for three years, I wish we had more time!

Kim Corey

My family had such a memorable experience at ISKL. Our 4.5 years of being a part of the ISKL community has been so valuable and unforgettable. The moment you enter the school, you become a part of the ISKL community, and the school, together with other members of ISKL community, helps you so much in such a way that you don’t feel left out. Permitted an opportunity, our family would love to return to ISKL.
