Mr Liam King, AISM Principal
I would like to extend a warm welcome to families looking for an outstanding school in Malaysia. The Australian International School Malaysia was founded 20 years ago. Since its foundation our parents have applauded the unique opportunities provided to their children in a nurturing and engaging environment that has encouraged students to exhibit a passion for academic and personal success. At The Australian International School Malaysia students grow in confidence, beyond their academic pursuits and across all areas of their development.
Being a truly international community in Malaysia, the experiences presented to students by living and learning in a global environment permeates every activity at our school. Our reputation for a holistic approach to learning allows the development of the heart, mind and body to flourish. This approach, along with our high quality, passionate teaching and support staff creates a unique learning environment. It is our mission through Visible Learning, that every member of our community will belong, thrive and achieve.
The New South Wales curriculum is a rigorous, yet accessible framework for all students. The fact that our students graduating with the NSW Higher School Certificate are recognised for entry to Universities, not only in Australia, but all over the world is an exceptionally powerful stepping stone for future tertiary studies.
Along with this, the students are actively involved in their learning through the expert guidance of a dedicated and committed teaching staff. Innovative approaches prevail across all areas of our offering and the fact that AISM is the first school worldwide to be accredited as a Visible Learning school (John Hattie) clearly supports statistically proven ways to increase academic outcomes. This is a shared framework to further increase learning. It builds a high level of student independence and empowers them to explore and develop their potential more deeply.
While academic pursuit remains the key priority, we are also focused on ensuring our students develop into balanced, confident, empathetic, compassionate and resilient individuals. The richness reflected in our international diversity prepares them well to assume their place in society, and make a positive contribution and difference as both well rounded citizens and leaders.
The School’s core values guide all who are part of this community and are a RECIPE for life - Respect (and caring for each other), Excellence (and being dedicated to a culture of it), Communication (and openness), Integrity, Passionate (in all we do) and creating an Enjoyable environment.
Environment and Service
We are fortunate to have a beautiful, well-resourced campus in which to grow and develop and this not only supports, but enhances and adds value to the delivery of our academic, cultural and sporting programs.
We believe it is important to prioritise in our young people an awareness that not all are as fortunate to be presented with the opportunities that are offered to them. Therefore we identify initiatives for students to support others in our local and wider communities.
I invite you to visit the Australian International School Malaysia and experience our core values in action.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
