TIS Kuala Lumpur follows an international curriculum based on the highly valued National Curriculum of England. It caters for students from Early Years to Secondary and culminates with excellence in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examination and qualification at the age of 16. 

Early Years

We offer the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) During Nursery and Reception. The IEYC has a set of four Learning Strands - Independence & Interdependence, Communicating, Enquiring and Healthy Living & Physical Well-Being. Each of the four Learning Stands describes what children will experience and learn.
Each IEYC unit of learning has been carefully designed around a central theme, holistically linking all four Learning Strands to relevant and engaging activities that can be adapted and extended to meet individual needs.
Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin are also introduced to prepare our children for more formal learning in Primary.

Primary School

Primary School covers Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). The focus is to build on literacy and numeracy skills. In addition to the core subjects, thematic approaches are used to introduce Humanities, Science and the Expressive Arts.
Our Primary School programme is based on the National Curriculum for England, enhanced by the highly regarded International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and supported by language education in Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin. 
In Key Stages 1 and 2, students are introduced to a wide range of subjects and studies where learning is hands-on, exciting and interesting. Children are actively involved in their lessons and are motivated to do things for themselves where they learn to ask questions and have the confidence to think for themselves. They will become more independent and make progress to achieve their full potential.

Secondary School

Secondary School covers Key Stages 3 and 4.

Key Stage 3 marks the beginning of Secondary education with Years 7 to 9. This next three years of learning will extend the knowledge and skills in subjects taught during Key Stage 2. The programme follows the National Curriculum for England, enhanced by international themes and languages in Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin. All subjects at this stage are taught by specialist teachers in dedicated classrooms. 

Key Stage 4 covers Years 10 and 11. This stage offers a two-year IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) course that culminates in examinations administered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
The IGCSE qualification is highly recognised worldwide, and places importance in content knowledge, application and skills. It is the equivalent of SPM, however with IGCSE, students graduate a year earlier than their SPM counterparts.
During this stage, students will focus on a selection of subjects that include the core subjects of Maths, English and Science, as well as continuing Key Stage 3 subjects. New subjects such as Business Studies, Economics, English Literature and Additional Mathematics are offered in Key Stage 4.
