The International School of Kuala Lumpur

ISKL is known as a center of excellence in the world of international education.

As a forward-thinking and future-ready school, we are committed to sharing learning and stimulating discussion about important topics in education – both for ISKL and the wider community.

We welcome the world to join us, as our Special Events are our way to share information and spark conversations, on topics that touch on every part of our human lives, no matter where you are.


At ISKL, education is not done to our students but with them. Our mission is to develop confident global citizens who are self-directed, future-ready, and prepared for the complexities of our evolving world. In other words, we believe in preparing our students for life.

If you are interested in all of that and more, tune in to our future-ready series, and join us for an ever-evolving future!

Future-Ready Learning for Middle Schoolers

January 27, 2021

Empowering Lifelong Learners, the Middle-School Experience

Ensuring students are “future-ready” is a critical component of ISKL’s mission to nurture successful global citizens.  ISKL’s Middle School (MS) Experience goes beyond the expected parameters of an international school by basing learning on student ownership, where education is not done ‘to’ students, but ‘with’ them. There are multiple elements integrated to our Middle School program, such as Agency, Malaysia Week, WIN (What I Need) Time, Sports & Activities that empower students to develop their voice, exercise choice and practice “future-ready” life skills such as initiative, calculated risk taking, and belief in oneself in a supportive environment.

Future-Ready Learning starts in Elementary School

March 31 , 2021

Where It All Starts, The Foundation of Future-Readiness

What does it mean to be Future-Ready when you are 5 years old? How can you assess if the education your child is receiving is preparing him or her for whatever the future will be? Isn’t Future-Ready buzz all about tech skills for the job of tomorrow. At ISKL, it is all about how we holistically nurture our students to understand their learnng and feeling from a young age, in other words how we nurture social emotional awareness.

At the ISKL’s Elementary School, we provide a warm and caring atmosphere where we help each child to grow and develop into responsible, ethical, caring, future-ready global citizens. Our standards-based curriculum enables students to think creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively, collaborate constructively, live ethically and learn enthusiastically. The whole ES team is very intentional about how we teach our students to understand knowledge, not just absorb it and to offer relevant and varied learning opportunities to our youngest learners so they can start their educational journey, their life journey, with solid and value-driven foundations.
