The International School of Kuala Lumpur
At ISKL, we believe deeply in the importance of nurturing our students’ awareness and understanding of the challenges facing our world, not only in relation to sustainability but in matters affecting us all both locally and globally. Our goal is for students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to change our world and make it a better place.

This is something we encourage and practice school-wide, from our youngest learners to Grade 12. We do this through service-learning and environmental awareness programs in our teaching and learning, and our broad range of activities and initiatives focused on service and sustainability. Skills are developed and practiced daily both in and out of the classroom with students learning to investigate issues, understand the perspective of others, and ultimately translate their ideas and findings into action.

Our curriculum is complemented by a values-based educational philosophy that incorporates service-learning and sustainability.

Through outdoor learning experiences like Global Action Program (GAP) and Malaysia Week that incorporate service learning and sustainability elements, our students gain different perspectives, build their global understanding, and develop new skills.

Our students also have many opportunities to take part in service initiatives throughout their time at ISKL, including service forums with guest speakers and student-led clubs with service at the center of any action. At ISKL, we nurture our students to walk the talk and be agents of change.
