Dear Prospective M'KIS Family,
Welcome to Mont’Kiara International School (M’KIS)! We are located in Mont’Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We offer the full range of IB World School programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). Our school mission is to enhance the creative, emotional, social and academic talents of each individual child. Throughout our school community we value: belonging and connection, kindness and compassion, and excellence and positivity.
Since 1994, our school has offered a high quality international educational experience in a welcoming and safe environment. Our diverse and talented student population are taught by an equally diverse and very experienced teaching faculty. Our school’s hiring practices are very selective to ensure only the best qualified teachers instruct our students. Our international academic curriculum has been very successful in supporting both our international and local students in achieving their post K-12 academic and career goals.
Our academic programs are approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in the United States, and authorized by the International Baccalaureate. With a global perspective, our curriculum includes 21st century skills, constructivist practices and a whole-child approach to the education of our students. Our learning environment is very welcoming, supportive, and rigorous. We prepare all of our students to be successful students and contributing world citizens.
In addition to academics, M’KIS is well known for its strong sense of community. We achieve this by providing great learning experiences for our students, a myriad of after school activities, sporting and social events. We also have a very active Parent Association which provides both ideas and resources to strengthen our programs. Our Students, parents and teachers all acknowledge a strong sense of belonging to our M’KIS community. We are especially proud of the diversity of cultural backgrounds represented at M’KIS and the positive connections made at our school.
Selecting the right school for your child is a very important decision. We are confident you will find M’KIS is a very good choice for your student’s education.
