How will you prepare my child to be future-ready?
This is the burning question Ms. Julia Love, Admissions Director at The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) believes parents should be asking a prospective school. Ms. Love: “It’s a given that parents will research the curriculum, academic results, and facilities. I strongly encourage parents to ask how the school will prepare their child for their future, how their child will learn and practice the skills they need for the rapidly evolving world that awaits them, and how these skills are embedded within the curriculum and everyday life.”
ISKL believes its success in preparing students for their future depends on how well it supports them in developing 21st century skills today. Self-directedness, the ability to think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively are integral components of the school’s curriculum and culture from Early Childhood through to Grade 12.
Every child learns differently
ISKL focuses on nurturing the individual, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach to education. Why? Because every child learns differently and our mission is to provide every learner with the flexibility to choose the pathway best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations. With the introduction of two innovative academic options, PRAXIS 2030 and Pursuits, our High School students now have even more study paths to choose from.
Our educational approach is embodied by our school’s call to action to Be All You Are which encourages our students to explore their passions and interests, achieve their goals and find themselves.
Ensuring students are future-ready is a critical component of ISKL’s Vision and Mission to nurture highly successful, spirited, and socially responsible global citizens. This year, with the added complexity of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on education, the need for an adaptable, agile, and forward-thinking approach to learning is greater than ever. Be it through onsite, distanced, or hybrid learning programs, ISKL’s approach to education remains the same. In a world where self-directedness, creative thinking, critical reasoning, and effective communication are essential for success, ISKL’s role is to guide, mentor, and support students to take on new responsibilities, face challenges, and learn to adapt.
