The Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) is located at the southern of Kuala Lumpur, in The MINES Resort City, Seri Kembangan, Selangor, Malaysia.[1]

The School follows the Australian and New South Wales Board of Studies curriculum at all levels, it is recognised by the Board of Studies and the curriculum leads to the Higher School Certificate (HSC) at Year 12.

Its KL campus is the first certified school in the world where their students learn using the certified Visible Learning™ Approach.

Organisation and teaching staff[edit]

The school is divided into two sub-schools, all on one campus; the sub-schools are Junior and Middle & Senior. Each sub-school is led by a Head of School, who is responsible for the students and staff within it. A Principal leads the whole school supported by the Head of Operations.

A Director of Curriculum and Innovation oversees the curriculum and content in each School, in consultation with the Heads of Schools.[2] A Sports Co-ordinator is responsible for the Sporting and Extra Curricular Programme and the Welfare Co-ordinator oversees the Pastoral care programmes.

Curriculum[edit]

AISM offers an Australian curriculum to all its students.

The Early Learning Centre (Preschool)[3] uses a combination of the Australian Early Years Learning Framework and the Reggio Emilia Approach where children are exposed to a variety of learning experiences based on their interests and needs.

In addition, students study a foreign language other than English - Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin Chinese is offered.

The curriculum allows the school to cater for gifted and talented children who need acceleration programs in one or more disciplines, for students with specific learning difficulties and for children of non-English speaking backgrounds either through specialized programs or through the policy of differentiating the curriculum.

An ESL support programme has been introduced, which allows students from non-English speaking backgrounds to improve their English skills in a small group learning situation, and also have help and support during regular lessons with their classmates.

For the Pre-University (Years 11 & 12), the students graduated with the New South Wales Higher School Certificate (HSC) at 18 years old. There are a range of courses on offer at AISM.
