IGB International School (IGBIS) is a vibrant Early Years to Grade 12 International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The School has an Elementary School (ages 2-10), and a Secondary School (ages 11-19) serving more than 500 students.
At IGBIS, we recognise that to prepare students for our increasingly complex and interconnected world, we must provide them with new ways of thinking and new ways of collaborating in solving our most pressing global issues. As such, our mission goes far beyond preparing students for good universities and successful careers; we want to create globally-minded and critical-thinking innovators ready to re-shape the world for the better. In short we live our vision and mission, as well as our catch phrase "Igniting Minds : Impacting Lives."
Our team of internationally experienced IB educators are trained to deliver an innovative international education that inspires our students to be lifelong learners who aim to make a positive impact on the world. Our teachers and administrators are recruited worldwide for their expertise, commitment and international experience.
IGBIS is the only school in Malaysia authorised for all four IB programmes: the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme, the Diploma Programme and the Career-related Programme. IB continuum schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to a high quality, stimulating international education for all students from Early Years to Grade 12, that IGBIS believes is important for its students.
The school offers a career-related stream through the CP, where students can undertake college-level art and design subjects through the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
Graduating students have consistently achieved outstanding results, scoring well above the world average on the IB Diploma, and achieving acceptances to prestigious universities including University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, University College London, Cornell, University of Toronto, McGill University and University of British Columbia, Canada.
We believe that effective learning engages the whole person; that inquiring, communicating, empathising, reflecting and taking action are what we expect from the educational journey that involves students from early childhood through to university entrance. The IB emphasises research skills, critical thinking and analysis, multiple perspectives, learning related to the real world in which the students live, and reflection. Students are encouraged to take ownership and responsibility for their learning. They are encouraged to be risk-takers, to confidently seek answers, to interpret knowledge and to take action.
The 10-acre campus is located only 12 kilometres from central Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The outstanding facilities that provide students opportunities to explore their talents and interests, include a 50-metre Olympic-size swimming pool and a 25-metre learn-to-swim pool, an 8-lane 400-metre running track surrounding an artificial turf football pitch, visual arts studios and a multi-media art studio, purpose-built music and drama rooms, and a 520-seat state-of-the-art theatre.
The school is a member of the Association of International Malaysian Schools (AIMS), the East Asia Council of Schools (EARCOS) and is accredited with both the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
