Kinabalu International School
Located in the warm and sunny tropical city of Kota Kinabalu, this international school has been providing an international education to a growing number of international and Malaysian students since 1973. The school has over 450 students, from more than 30 different countries, supported by 98 staff, predominantly from the UK and Malaysia. Approximately 55% of the student population are Malaysian, with the next 20% of the population being made up of South Korean, British and French students. Parents are very supportive of their children’s education.
One of only two international schools in Kota Kinabalu, the school boasts an excellent reputation. The school caters for students from 12 months to 18 years old, following the National Curriculum Programme of Study for England and Wales. Secondary students work towards their IGCSE and A Level examinations in a wide range of subjects, with the school’s graduates progressing to some of the best universities in the world.
Students and staff alike benefit from the school’s Council of International Schools accreditation and its membership of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA). The latter affiliation provides students with opportunities to connect and compete with students around Asia in a mixture of academic and sporting events.
