Local International Schools in Klang Valley

When I first wrote my previous post on Researching International Schools in Kuala Lumpur, I never expected to get the kind of response that it did. As a result, a few parents who have sent their children to local international schools have asked me to start a new post featuring local international schools so that they might “meet” and compare notes. So here it is…

The following is a list of local international schools that I know of. Please leave me a comment if there are others that I’ve missed.

After the recent news that Science and Math subjects will now be taught in Malay, many parents are turning to international schools as an option for educating their children to avoid this. The purpose of beginning this post is because there is a concern that many local schools are jumping onto the “international curriculum” band-wagon in hopes of cashing in on the influx of local students. Hopefully, with an open exchange of views and opinions between parents who have children attending these schools, we can identify which are the better schools.

As with the implementation of all new programs, there will always be teething issues, so let us keep this in mind as we leave our comments and thoughts about the current programs in existence. Please be fair with your comments. I reserve the right to remove comments that are hateful and downright nasty.

  1. Hi not so hot mama,

    I wouldn’t suggest Maz int’l school. You are going to waste your money. A lot of horror stories there. If your son has learning disablities , you can try hils learning in mont kiara.

  2. Hi Ivette,

  3. Dear all,
    The info posted here are very relevant and useful.
    Thank you, Shen Li for organising it!
    I’m a mother of 2 gals (age 8 & 10). Both of them are currently studying in SJK (C).
    Reason for sending them to Chinese school is simple. We want our kids to pick up strong Mandarin at least for 5/6 yrs.
    Now….where should we send them after that?
    Public schools OR International schools?
    We like schools such as Catholic High, Wesley Methodist. They have good reputation, discipline and achieve high standards of academic excellence.
    But we have no confidence with the new Malaysian syllabus (Math & Science in Bahasa).
    Our next option would be to send them to International schools…
    We have budget constraint…International schools such as Alice Smith, GIS, are out of the picture.
    We visited Sri Garden International, Sri KDU International, Nobel International during the past week…
    Good reputation?? Discipline?? High standards of academic?? I have no clue!!
    We are in the dilemma…
    Is school environment (students) important? OR syllabus?
    My daughters are doing very well in their current school [SJK(C)], especially Maths and English.
    We are concern with the new Malaysian syllabus if we send them to Public schools. Will they be able to cope with all subjects in Bahasa?
    We are worried with the surrounding environment if we send them to International schools. Can these international schools achieve high standards of academic?
    Please help…

  4. I wonder why we think so far ahead for our children? If they are good, they are good. If they are poor, even if they go to private schools, they remain poor.

    I’m also interested for any feedback on Seri Suria Private/International school(Ulu Langat) or Stella Maria Private School (Jln Pudu) if anyone has experience sending their kids there. Information on the fees would be great too. Thanks!

  6. Dear concern parents,
    My girl is in SJKC seating for UPSR next year. Been searching around for international secondary school as we have zero confident in our ever changing edu system. Sri Dashmesh(going international next year) and Sri Inai Beaconhouse has been short listed. Our concern with Sri Dashmesh is, long waiting list and will the transition be smooth? As for Sri Inai in taman Sea, could not find any review on line. some say the students are arrogant? Would appreciate any thoughts. Thank you.

    Sri Inai Beaconhouse

  9. Hi there!

    I am extremely new here having stumbled upon this post whilst looking for reviews on some international schools I had in mind. My son who is in standard one is currently in Sekolah Kebangsaan but I think I would like to put him in an international school because I was thinking more about his education in the long run. I have registered him for Sri KL but the classes are full so he’s on the waiting list right now.

    I am staying in Subang and was contemplating other international schools names Fairview Subang and Asia Pacific International School (APIS).

    I know that Sri KL has good track record in Academics but I was wondering if APIS would be a good school to consider too? APIS is of course a bit out of the way and whilst the surrounding area seems a bit icky to me, I do think the school has a nice learning environment suitable conducive for children. Only that I am not too sure about the quality of teachers and subjects taught.

    I noted with interest the comments posted by Adele about Sri KL. But does the school also put emphasis on other activities like sports and arts? It would be great if I could find out more from parents who would have children currently enrolled in Sri KL.
