Fairview International School
Year 1 to 13
Most children get to school via private transport or local van services.
The facilities are satisfactory, a basketball court, football field (small) and 3 badminton courts in the hall. They have a decent mix of indoor and outdoor ECAs but perhaps could do with some external ones like horse riding, uniformed clubs....
When my children entered the Middle Years Programme (MYP) there the teachers welcomed them well, asking about how they were taught.... There wasnt much in the way of specific help but my son was going into the year 10 class there anyway and had a brittish curriculum background so entering their year 10 class (which was iGCSE) was fine.
Parents are invited to the festive celebrations that are traditionally celebrated in Malaysia like Deepavali and Chinese New Year. Apart from that there are the other usuals like sports day and carnival. They also host several parent forums only for the IB curriculum families.
Have a read into the International Baccalaureate programme. When I heard about it I really didn't understand it but it's a whole new way of education that other international schools in Kuala Lumpur do not use. If you want a holistic education that doesn't focus on the traditional lines of knowledge (cramming books for exams) or sport (lots of facilities and ECAs) but rather more of the development of skills and values then you need to seriously consider Fairview.
What you want in your children is not for them to be physically fit or exam focused but to develop into well rounded, educated individuals. Their facilities and buildings area rather meager but the MYP education is definitely the way forward.
