At The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), the opportunities to learn outside the classroom by participating in co-curricular activities are invaluable in supporting our students to be all they are. These experiences are essential in helping our students discover passions, interests, and create a lifetime of memories.
Our students recently participated in The Addams Family Musical and the annual Jazz Night productions, and one thing is for certain: both performances were a hit!
Lively music filled The Robert B. Gaw Theatre, and although the events were live-streamed to our community, the immense range of talent was undeniable. Melodic music graced our homes as the ISKL Singers and Jazz Night Combo gave beautiful renditions of hits such as Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E” and “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra. The theatre also got spooky as students transformed the space to give us a wacky performance of The Addams Family Musical featuring characters such as Morticia and Wednesday played by our diverse community.
Congratulations to our talented students for their hard work in helping the arts shine at ISKL! Are you interested in learning more about the co-curricular activities at ISKL? Head over to the website here.
Established in 1965, The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) has become known as a centre of excellence in the world of international education. ISKL is a co-educational, private, not-for-profit school responsible for the learning journey of over 1,500 students aged 3-18 years from more than 65 countries, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
ISKL offers a robust international curriculum that combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practice. The curriculum recognizes that students are on a lifelong learning journey and is driven by ISKL’s mission to challenge each student to ‘Be All You Are’ and develop the attitudes, skills, knowledge, and understanding to become a highly successful, spirited, socially responsible global citizen.
ISKL offers a range of high-quality, transdisciplinary pathways that enable every learner to choose the curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations. In 2020-2021 two new innovative High School options, PRAXIS 2030 (Grade 9 and 10) and the Pursuits Program (Grade 11 and 12) were added to the curriculum. Both focus on enhancing student agency and self-directed learning.
In Grade 11, students can choose to undertake the full two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), or combine individual IB, Advanced Placement (AP), and High School Diploma courses via the ISKL Pursuits Program to create a customized program that meets the specific individual needs of each student.
As the longest-running World IB School in Malaysia, ISKL has seen more than 1,500 students graduate with an IB Diploma over the past 30 years, representing a ninety-seven percent pass rate. This flexibility creates further education opportunities with ISKL students receiving acceptances from leading universities worldwide.
