UCSI International School is wholly owned by UCSI Group. The Group's maiden education investment dates back to 1986, and today this flagship subsidiary is known as UCSI University. The UCSI International School is another education subsidiary of UCSI. There are two international school campuses - in Springhill and in Subang.
Teaching and Learning
In UCSI teachers encourage students to explore and test their ideas, refine them and take them further in the best way possible. They want their students to become critical thinkers that will impact society as they mature. Almost 90% of the teachers are expatriates with minimum of 6-8 years of experience in teaching.
International Primary Curriculum and Cambridge IGCSE are taught in Subang Jaya campus. In the Springhills campus the curriculum taught is IB for all levels. They also provide preschool for kids from 3-6 years old.
"In terms of teaching, there is an unique feature that they offer, called 'Cornell University Note-Taking System', which allows students to think critically, develop questions and report findings about their new lessons.
The school teachers in UCSI believe that learning should be interesting for children and they need to learn "how" before "what" to study. Making students think out of the box (critical Thinking), relating education to real life practices, and introducing new approaches in which students can be more innovative are well-implemented in UCSI. The school also offers a shorter primary education duration of 5 years, which allows students to start their secondary education one year earlier.
An interesting and not-usually-seen point about them is putting their teacher's profile on their website and letting parents know more about school's academic staff. This shows that they are confident and aware of their responsibilities and tasks. UCSI International School also benefits from highly educated and qualified principals and academic coordinators both in Subang Jaya and Springhills.
School buses and vans provide transportation for students from 3 main areas: Subang Jaya, Sunway and Shah Alam."
