As a young school from a young nation, our approach values exploration, to help every child extend their horizons and excel in their chosen fields. We are not bound by tradition. Instead we maintain our desire to continually strive for what is best, rather than what has been done before. Our curriculum, the new Australian curriculum, is thoroughly researched and continually reviewed, and is designed to prepare your child for the dynamism of the 21st century.
How we began
Australia’s strong links with Malaysia began in the Second World War, and were fostered by the innovative Columbo Plan which ran from the 1950s to the 1980s. Through this plan, Asian scholars, including about 3000 from Malaysia, received scholarships to study at universities in Australia.
In recognition of this link, and of growing educational and business ties between our countries, the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) was founded in 2000, through an Australian and Malaysian partnership. Broadfields Sdn Bhd. Sunrise Berhad, a well known public listed property company was the Malaysian partner. The aim of the partnership was to bring to Malaysia a well rounded and rigorous Australian education, drawing on Australia’s academic strengths and sporting prowess.
