KL International Schools - Grouped by Curriculum Type

Updated: Nov 1, 2019



We often get asked which international schools in KL offer which curriculum. It certainly can be confusing!


Many international schools here in KL finish after Year 11, in line with the public schooling system. Some are full IB. Others follow the British curriculum but offer the IB Diploma rather than A Levels in the Sixth Form. There are also American, Australian and Canadian curriculum options! So, we've put together this handy list which clearly shows which curriculum each international school offers.


To make this list even more useful, we have indicated each school's price tier in brackets. Tier 1 is the most expensive (80-100k per year for a Year 7/Grade 6 student), Tier 6 the most affordable (under 20k per year). Schools are listed alphabetically within each curriculum group.


If you'd like to see where the schools are located, you can check out our handy interactive map. You may also be interested to see which of these international schools are in our school network.

As a parent who has always been really involved with her kids, I was really anxious about moving to Malaysia - especially as far as my kids' education was concerned.

 

Thankfully, I came across Helen and her guidance really helped us sail through. I cannot thank her enough: she has helped us through the entire process, from explaining what school is right for us, to getting our applications organised. Being in Pakistan and getting everything done from here would not have been a breeze!

 

I cannot thank her enough for arranging everything and getting all my kids through! Helen,  you are truly the best! I would recommend her hands down as she is so dedicated!!!
