Elementary School Life

A typical day in the Elementary School at M’KIS begins with students entering their classrooms and engaging with classmates and their homeroom teacher in a morning meeting or activity. Throughout the day students engage in our core curriculum under the IB Primary Years Programme framework through inquiry-based and stand-alone units of study, developing their skills and knowledge in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. Specialists also provide our students with instruction in Music, Visual Arts, Physical Education, Malaysian History and Culture, and World Language (Spanish, Mandarin or French).

Access to our well-stocked Library collection is readily available and Information Literacy is integrated throughout the curriculum with students benefiting from 1-to-1 use of iPads or Chromebooks. Our non-native English speaking students receive instruction via small group and classroom support from our EAL teachers at each grade level, building students’ confidence and skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Additional intensive assistance in learning literacy skills is provided by our Literacy Support teachers. At the end of the school day, a variety of extracurricular programs are offered to enrich the Elementary School journey.
