Welcome to M'KIS Middle School
Welcome to the Mont’Kiara International School (M’KIS) middle school website! M’KIS is a place where students are welcomed by warm and nurturing faculty and staff, where there are high academic and behavioural expectations, and where every child is given the opportunity to succeed. Students within our Middle School follow a rigorous and challenging curriculum based on the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, which helps support our belief in developing balanced learners with the skills required to enjoy a successful high-school experience. In addition, our students have a broad range of opportunities to develop their sporting, artistic, leadership, and social skills. Our middle school has very active Student Council, Helping Hands service club, and an excellent Model United Nations programs. We host a very successful annual MYMUN conference at M’KIS which provides our students with the opportunity to develop their debating and leadership skills. We look forward to welcoming you and your children within our school community.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.

About M'KIS Middle School
The middle school years, grades six to eight, are a time of exploration. In middle school, students are just starting to know themselves, their friends and the world around them in a deeper and more meaningful way. Accordingly, the middle school program at M'KIS is designed to guide and support students through this dynamic transitional period.
Students are exposed to a wider range of subject matter and curricula while being encouraged to ask higher-level questions that require more sophisticated thinking skills. Middle schoolers love the options they now have before them, from the introduction of elective choices on their schedules to the ability to choose their own food in the M'KIS Cafe each day. Middle schoolers are equally fond of the annual three-day Malaysian Studies trips – for many, this exciting experience is their first time away from family!
Although our middle school shares the same campus with elementary and high school, we have been ever-mindful to develop a distinct middle school philosophy and program to meet the needs of students. A focus on making connections academically, developing organizational skills and greater independence, as well as providing an opportunity for personal expression, are fundamentals of the growing middle school program a M'KIS.
