Principal's Welcome

Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,


I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all of you to ISK, the distinguished American curriculum-based school on the East Coast of Malaysia. As the Principal of ISK, it is my privilege to introduce you to our exceptional learning community.


ISK holds the distinction of being the only accredited institution by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), an esteemed American accrediting association for schools around the world. This accreditation is a testament to our commitment to providing a world-class education that meets rigorous international standards. It assures you that when you choose ISK, you are choosing excellence.


Despite being a small school, we take pride in offering a wealth of opportunities for our students to thrive academically, personally, and socially. Our dedicated faculty members are passionate about imparting knowledge, nurturing creativity, and fostering critical thinking skills in our students. They go beyond textbooks, encouraging students to develop a thirst for knowledge that extends beyond the classroom.


At ISK, we understand that education encompasses more than academic achievements. Our state-of-the-art facilities provide a supportive and stimulating environment for holistic development. From well-equipped classrooms to modern science and computer labs, we ensure that our students have the necessary resources to explore, experiment, and excel. Our library houses an extensive collection of books that fuels a love for reading and enhances intellectual growth.


We are proud members of the East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS), which connects us with a network of leading international schools in the region. This membership allows us to collaborate, share best practices, and provide our students with a truly global learning experience that prepares them for success in an interconnected world.


I invite you to explore our school further, either through our virtual tour or by visiting our campus in person. Witness firsthand the vibrant energy that permeates our hallways and feel the sense of community that defines us. Our dedicated team is here to assist you and answer any questions you may have. Together, we can ensure that your educational journey at ISK is filled with growth, discovery, and accomplishment.


Once again, welcome to ISK! I look forward to personally getting to know each and every one of you and embarking on a remarkable educational journey together.


Warm regards,


Dr Kee Chin Hui
