Bringing Out the Best in You


Mission

To be acclaimed by the world-wide international education community as a provider of the highest quality international education which is specifically matched to the needs of our expatriate and local students.


Background

Garden International School is Malaysia's leading premier international school, with more than 60 years of history in providing British-style education to the expatriate community in Malaysia. Catering for children from nursery level (age 3+) all the way up to A Levels (age 18+), GIS has a main campus in Kuala Lumpur and a small campus in Kuantan with a total of over 2,100 students from 60 different countries.

Known for its high standards of education and stringent operational practices, GIS is one of the 200 international schools worldwide who have received full accreditation by the Council of International Schools (CIS) (formerly known as the European Council of International Schools/ECIS) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). GIS has also been awarded the international standard of ISO 9001:2000.

The School bases its curriculum on the National Curriculum of England with modifications made to meet local requirements. The English system provides a broad education which prepares students for further and higher educational opportunities in the world's leading universities.

The international focus of the school and the influence of the multi-racial population of Malaysia, prepares students for world citizenship.

The curriculum is divided into several major stages :

  • The foundation programme provided by the Early Years Centre
  • Key stage 1 (Year 1 to 2)
  • Key stage 2 (Year 3 to 6)
  • Key stage 3 (Year 7 to 9)
  • Key stage 4 (Year 10 to 11)
  • The sixth form (Year 12 to 13)

Key stages 1 and 2 are provided in the primary school and key stages 3, 4 and the sixth form by the secondary school. Over the years, GIS has kept an exceptional record of academic success with impressive numbers of straight A's achieved each year. These results have enabled GIS students to gain entry into top universities throughout the world, including Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.

The fully qualified and highly experienced teaching staff teach subjects which incorporate skills that students can apply in dealing with real life situations such as tackling mathematical and scientific concepts through problem solving, questioning, experimenting and observing. The student vision focuses on the development of students as adaptable lifelong learners, active citizens, effective contributors, resilient individuals, independent enquirers and creative thinkers.

GIS students are well prepared for the future academic and working environment. From kindergarten level, they are taught to use information and communication technology (ICT) hardware and software confidently.

They are trained to use ICT facilities purposefully to communicate and handle information, which supports problem solving, recording and expressive work. The main campus at Bukit Kiara has 600 networked computers with Internet facilities, projection display facilities and electronic white boards.

The school places emphasis on the arts as well as the more traditional curriculum and has a dedicated Arts Centre with outstanding facilities for art, music, drama and modern languages. Specialist rooms are also used for teaching different subjects in different faculties.

All primary and secondary students are encouraged to partake in some of the 150 school co-curricular activities such as sporting activities, debating, model construction, ten pin bowling, majorette dance, horse riding and golf, to name a few. Besides a football field, an indoor sports hall, a gymnasium and two covered all-purpose courts, an all-weather court provides additional facilities for tennis and basketball.

Students of the school take part in both Malaysian based and overseas sporting, artistic, cultural and exchange activities such as FOBISSEA (Federation of British International Schools in South and East Asia) Games, ISAKL (International Schools Association of Kuala Lumpur) events, Model United Nations, The International Award, Interact, Asia Europe Classroom and school exchanges.

GIS also offers a comprehensive English as Additional Language (EAL) programme with specialist classes for students who are learning English. Students on the EAL programme not only have classes in English but also have lessons in all other subject areas.
