On August 20, 1994, Mont’Kiara International School (M’KIS) opened its doors for the first time. With a handful of students and teachers in the heart of a suburb that had yet to truly take shape, the endeavor was a leap of faith. The M’KIS story has always been about striving for excellence. From the day we welcomed our first students, we have dedicated ourselves to building a future we can all be proud of.
