The British International School of Kuala Lumpur: part of the Nord Anglia educational family | Large international fair for education and schools

The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) is a warm and welcoming international community. Our commitment to fostering student happiness forms the foundation of student success and our “be ambitious” philosophy.

The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) offers an early years program with play-based learning for children from the age of 2 and continues with primary and secondary school programs culminating with A levels in year 13. Students of over 60 nationalities learn, collaborate and build together; make the school community truly international.

BSKL places students at the heart of everything we do. Including a personalized learning program that allows teachers to challenge students to grow, while evaluating them against their own past performance. This ensures that all students experience growth, are open to trying new opportunities, and will be invested in their learning and success.

Our teachers know each child and engage them in an exceptional learning environment. The result is happy kids who look forward to coming to school every day and working to accomplish more than they thought possible. A positive education program in elementary school helps children unlock even more potential by developing habits and skills around resilience, self-care and communication. A pastoral orientation in high school builds on these skills as the school curriculum becomes more challenging.
