ISP in Malaysia
ISP operates Asia Pacific Schools, Straits International Schools and Tenby Schools where we are strategically located covering the Klang Valley, Perak, Penang and Johor within Malaysia. Our experience in educational excellence helps us provide amazing learning experiences for students as young as 3 years up to 18 years old. The nine (9) ISP schools in Malaysia follow the international school curriculum comprising IGCSE and A-levels, starting at the kindergarten level, while five (5) of the schools also offer the Malaysian National Curriculum. While the national and international schools and classrooms are separated, facilities and non-curricular activities are shared between the schools. With over 8,000 students, we have a 60-year history in the country providing education to students and have gained a reputation for excellence and high standards in education.
What unites all ISP schools is a common purpose of enabling moments of Amazing Learning, where a student goes beyond the level they thought possible and amaze themselves with the progress they make. We believe that by providing our students opportunities to learn through a good struggle, they will develop the perseverance and resilience necessary to independently overcome any challenges that lie in their way.
