Garden International School Malaysia

Bringing Out the Best in Our Children

Garden International School is Malaysia's largest private international school, with more than 50 years of history 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 1,700 students that hail from 58 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). 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 and enables pupils to move to any other English-speaking country without suffering any educational disadvantage. Indeed, their education should be enhanced by the time spent in Malaysia's multi-cultural environment.

The curriculum is divided into several major stages:

  1. The Foundation Programme provided by the Early Years Department
  2. Key stage 1 (Year 1 to 2)
  3. Key stage 2 (Year 3 to 6)
  4. Key stage 3 (Year 7 to 9)
  5. Key Stage 4 (Year 10 to 11)
  6. 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 excellent 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 and Cambridge.

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.

GIS students are well prepared for future academic and working environment. From kindergarten level, they are taught to use Information and Communications 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 500 networked computers with Internet facilities and projection display facilities.

The school places emphasis on the Arts as well as the more traditional curriculum and has just completed the construction of an 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 100 school co-curricular activities such as Sport 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 Court, 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 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.
