Teaching and Learning

International School of Kuala Lumpur offers programmes from Prep Reception (3 years old) to High School diploma which is either the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma or Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

ISKL is a technologically advanced school, and technology plays an important role in the lives of the students and teachers. At ISKL service-learning is utilized both in the classroom and in co-curricular clubs/activities. Though Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is not a required component of all service learning experiences, it does provide an excellent foundation upon which to identify issues that have global significance, but which are dealt with (through service learning) at the local level. In short, service learning is a natural bridge of the ESD curriculum and compliments ISKL’s school wide learning results (SLRs).
