Parent's Review of Fairview International School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Fairview International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Kuala Lumpur

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Year 1 to 13

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most children get to school via private transport or local van services.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

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....

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

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.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

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.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

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.
