The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) believes that it's success today is based on how well it prepares its 1,700 students for their future. Offering a diverse academic and co-curricular program, ISKL challenges each student to 'Be All You Are' and supports learners in exploring and developing the passions, skills, and competencies they need to be future-ready, not only for university and their career, but for life itself.

The school is located on a 26-acre, state-of-the-art campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and is home to students representing more than 65 nationalities. Students benefit from its robust international curriculum that combines leading North American educational frameworks with global best practice.

ISKL is a fully inclusive school and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) on a non-selective basis. With IBDP results that are consistently above the world average, ISKL’s 29-year pass rate of 97% is testament to the strength of its program and expert international faculty. In 2020, 24% of ISKL students scored 40 or more points and 22% earned a Bilingual Diploma. Multilingual students have the opportunity to take IB Language and Literature courses in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.

ISKL is one of the only schools in Malaysia offering transdisciplinary pathways that are designed to enable every learner to choose a curriculum best suited to their abilities, interests, and aspirations. In addition to the IBDP, High School options include PRAXIS 2030 (Grade 9-10) and ISKL's Pursuits Program combining individual IB, Advanced Placement and High School courses for students who want to deep-dive into a specific area. The flexibility of ISKL's academic program enables students to take advantage of higher education opportunities worldwide, as typified by the Class of 2020 who received more than 450 acceptances from over 200 universities in 13 countries spanning five continents.

The recently introduced, innovative PRAXIS 2030 program uses problem-based learning and real-world challenges to develop critical reasoning, constructive collaboration and effective communication skills - ideal preparation for the IBDP.

Established in 1965 and authorized to run the IBDP in 1989, ISKL is Malaysia's longest-running IB World School. It is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools, and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and College. Recent awards include Highly Commended in the Relocate Awards for School Providing Outstanding Relocation Support category.
