The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) believes that its success today is based on how well it prepares its 1,500 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 practices.

ISKL is a fully inclusive school and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) on a non-selective basis. Established in 1965 and authorized to run the IBDP in 1989, ISKL is Malaysia's longest-running IB World School. With IBDP results that are consistently above the world average, ISKL's 30-year pass rate of 97% is a testament to the strength of its program and expert international educators. In 2021, 36.8% of ISKL students scored 40 or more points, and 18.8% earned a Bilingual Diploma. Multilingual students can take IB Language and Literature courses in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.

ISKL offers transdisciplinary pathways designed to enable every learner to choose a curriculum best suited to their needs. 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 create their own program of study and take a deep dive into an area of interest. The flexibility of ISKL's academic program enables students to take advantage of higher education opportunities worldwide, as typified by the graduating Class of 2021, who received more than 280 acceptances and offers from over 130 universities in 12 countries spanning four continents.

ISKL is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. ISKL has a strong focus on service and sustainability and is a member of the Eco-Schools organization and the Green Schools Alliance. ISKL was the recipient of the 2021 International School Award in the Well-being Initiative category and Malaysia's Eco-Schools Green Award 2011-2021.
