HISTORY OF GIIS, the best international school in Malaysia

We have come a long way since our inception in 2002.

 In the last 20 years, we have grown to span ten countries with 35 campuses combined in Singapore, India, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, UAE, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Cambodia.

Today, we are a leading international school in Kuala Lumpur offering Indian and International curricula to students from diverse backgrounds.

We, at GIIS Kuala Lumpur, have steadfastly focused on providing an extraordinary education to students from all over the world. In adopting the cultural ideology of “Schools That Learn”, we make each and every member of our community an equal partner in the process of learning.

We have established ourselves as one of the best international schools in Kuala Lumpur by empowering students to take active roles in their own progress. We uniquely engage them while promoting a culture reinforcing the joy of lifelong learning.
