International School of Kuala Lumpur

Established in 1965, The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) has become known as a center 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 1,700 students aged 3-18 years from more than 65 countries at its award-winning campus 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.

Students in Grade 11 and 12 also have the option of taking the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) that ISKL has offered since 1989. 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 29 years, representing a ninety-seven percent pass rate. This flexibility creates further education opportunities with ISKL students receiving acceptances from leading universities worldwide.
