A World of Opportunities at ISKL

ISKL - creating memories and providing opportunities for your child to be all they can be.

A K-12 Co-curricular Program

What are your best memories of school? It could be a teacher, a classmate, or a trip you took for a competition—what is certain is that they played an important part in shaping you to become who you are today. As parents, we want to choose the right school, a school full of opportunities that will help create special memories for our children.

At The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), the co-curricular program complements holistic education in supporting students to explore their passions and interests, achieve their goals, and better understand themselves. Essentially, the school provides a world of opportunities for your child to be all they can be. 

A K-12 Co-curricular Program
In Elementary School, a strong and varied co-curricular program is an integral part of the educational mission for students. ISKL seeks to develop the whole child and provide opportunities for young learners to discover hobbies, sports, and interests beyond the school curriculum and improve their social skills, including cooperation, leadership, interpersonal skills, and independence.

Adolescents need opportunities to explore new interests, develop their artistic, athletic skills, and grow as human beings. The Middle School (MS) co-curricular program ensures that students can explore and develop agency and future-ready skills. Every year, MS students look forward to joining the Malaysia Week camp program, which is experiential learning at its best. 

When students enter High School (HS), they are empowered to choose and lead clubs based on their interests, competencies, and aspirations in preparation for life beyond ISKL. Besides participating in co-curricular activities,  students are encouraged to take on leadership positions and are involved in the exploration of community needs, solution planning, and action. The opportunities bring a kaleidoscope of memories students.

Let's take a closer look at the three pillars around which these co-curricular programs are built: Activity, Creativity, Service.

Activities Beyond the Classroom
Participation in activities is an integral component of school life at ISKL. Beyond the academic curriculum, our students learn collaboration, camaraderie, and commitment through varied activities such as debate, STEM, athletics, and sports. These attributes are developed and practiced by students of every age, every week on the track and trail, court and studio, and pitch and pool.

Activities Beyond the Classroom

Students compete in many local and regional competitions throughout the year, which allows them to connect with students from other schools. ISKL is a proud participating member of The Association of International Malaysian Schools (AIMS) and the Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asia Schools (IASAS), where the High School Athletic Program competes at the varsity level.

An Avenue for Creativity
Creativity is central to development, and ISKL offers a wide range of opportunities that are both embedded within our curriculum and co-curricular activities. These are critical components in enabling students to experiment and take risks in a nurturing environment while encouraging them to explore and discover new interests. 

An Avenue for Creativity

Imagination is the door to possibilities, and providing them with the tools to think, innovate, and employ creative thinking is of tremendous benefit. From talent shows to musicals, youth orchestras to jazz nights, mural paintings to art exhibitions, ISKL students have myriad opportunities to hone their talents and creatively express themselves. 

Learning Through Service
A wide range of service learning co-curricular activities are available and these encourage students to make positive changes in the world around them and become involved in exploring community needs, solution planning, and action.

ISKL offers several clubs that participate in community partnerships, such as the Special Children Society of Ampang (SCSOA), the Chin Community Partnership, and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Besides that, HS students have the opportunity to engage in our Global Action Program (GAP), designed to provide hands-on opportunities to make a tangible impact within the wider community. 

Learning Through Service

A key component of ISKL’s holistic education is our broad range of engaging co-curricular activities that provide a plethora of possibilities for each student to be all they can be. To learn more about the co-curricular program at ISKL, visit  here.
