Garden International School
Garden International School is currently the largest private, co-educational, international school in Malaysia offering a British-style curriculum for students from Early Years to 'A' Level. The school was established in 1951 to provide British-style education to the expatriate and local community in Kuala Lumpur. Since then the school has undergone a period of sustained development. It moved to a purpose built campus in 1996 which has since been extended by the addition of a seven-storey arts building. The school is situated on two sites, the main campus in Kuala Lumpur and a small Primary school campus in Kuantan, on the East coast of Malaysia. In total, the school has students from over 58 nationalities. Teaching staff are mainly recruited from the United Kingdom, Australia and from Malaysia itself. Facilities on the main campus include over six hundred networked computers, seven science laboratories, extensive Performing Arts facilities, performance hall, visual arts studios, ten ICT suites, a sports hall, an Astroturf court, 25-metre swimming pool and two cafeterias. The Garden International School follows the guidelines of the National Curriculum for England up to Year 9 and from then on follows a curriculum that leads to Cambridge IGCSE examinations and Cambridge 'A' Level. A wide range of subjects are available at 'A' level and students move from these courses to enter universities worldwide. Impressive academic results are achieved at all levels. In addition specialist English as Additional Language provision is available to students from 6 to 14 years of age. Provision for Special Educational Needs is delivered by the schools Learning Support Unit. There is a very extensive programme of extra-curricular activities that take place at Garden International School every day after school. Entry to the school is by interview at both Primary and Secondary level and a placement assessment is carried out before admittance. Application forms are available on request from the Admissions Department of the Garden International School.
