It has been our dream to develop a new campus that will re-unite the Elementary School again with the Middle and High Schools in a purpose built facility. Constraints at the Ampang campus are particularly evident as the school will soon lose the use of a playing field. The new facility will allow ISKL to incorporate the latest in teaching and learning space design, with unique spaces for performance and sport for both students and the community.
The new ISKL campus will have facilities that are unique to the landscape of other international schools in the region. Distinguishing elements are the Center for Performing Arts (with its four elements including a 650 seat Theatre, Concert Recital Hall, Blackbox Theatre, Atrium Amphitheatre, and an aquatics complex which includes a 50 m competition pool, 25 m pool, and a swimming pool for young learners. The school is also being designed to achieve Platinum GBI, which will be another unique marker for a school in Malaysia.
The school’s vision is for the new Ampang Hilir campus to serve as an education hub for the region. Whether it is the school’s extensive annual Professional Development offerings, or the performances in the new Performing Arts center, the intention is that the campus will serve as a resource to the community in Kuala Lumpur.
Yes. To construct a facility of this size and scope, trees will have to be removed from the site. To offset the cutting of these trees, ISKL is working with a local craftsman to make furniture and guitars from the wood cut from site. In addition, the school is looking at a reforestation project in a nearby area to offset that which has been lost for construction. Finally ISKL has worked with an environmental consultant, landscape designer, and the Kuala Lumpur City Council ensure that all works are undertaken in a responsible manner.
