The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) believes that its success today is based on how well it prepares its students for their future. Offering a diverse academic and co-curricular program, ISKL's curriculum recognizes that students are on a lifelong learning journey and is driven by ISKL's purpose to prepare our students for life itself, as we believe in the importance of helping students to shape their own paths, supporting them in discovering their passions, developing their competencies, and having an ethical impact on the world.

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. 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 30 years, representing a 98% pass rate. In 2022, 34% of ISKL students scored 40 or more points and 20% 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 (Grade 9) 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 creates further education opportunities, with ISKL students receiving acceptance from leading universities worldwide.

ISKL is accredited internationally through the Council of International Schools (CIS), and in the United States through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). ISKL has a strong focus on service and sustainability across its divisions and is a member of the Eco-Schools organization and the Green Schools Alliance. Past awards include Highly Commended in the Relocate Awards for School Providing Outstanding Relocation Support category.
