This International School welcomed its first students in the fall of 2018 and offers students a unique opportunity to enjoy an American education in Malaysia as either day or boarding students from PreK to G12.

Students come from both near and far, as citizens of Mainland China/Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, the UK, and the USA. The teaching faculty brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the American curriculum. Over half of international teachers are Americans, and there are also teachers from Canada, the Philippines, the UK, Australia, Korea, and Malaysia. The experience and training teachers bring to their craft create a truly international learning experience for students.
