International Baccalaureate (IB)
The IB Diploma Program is a cornerstone of the academic experience at ISKL, providing a challenging two-year pre-university curriculum that leads to a qualification recognized by the world’s leading universities. It is the longest running IB program in Malaysia, with authorization granted in 1989.
By completing a 4000-word research paper, a 15-minute oral discussion on comparative literature, publicly displaying a work of art, or crafting an original laboratory experiment, IB students are absorbed in authentic and challenging academic work. Historical investigations, mathematical explorations, geographic fieldwork, economic commentaries, orals in world languages, theatre research... such learning cannot be done by memorizing facts and figures. It is accomplished by being inquisitive and taking intellectual risks; the hallmarks of a 21st century education.
