Hey Yasser,

Malaysia is home to a sizeable expat community and as such you should find some good international schooling options of offer. 

Mont’Kiara International School is a good option to explore if you are looking for a school that follows the US curriculum.

How old are your kids? And how long do you hope to be in KL for?

For a more comprehensive list of international schools take a look at the International Schools in Kuala Lumpur page. 

Good luck with the move.

Hi Yasser,

The first and foremost consideration should be a school which is near to your residence. Since I am not aware of that, I can still recommend you some really good International Schools in Malaysia. You can definitely check these out:

  1. Raffles American School in Johor Bahru
  2. International School of Kuala Lumpur in Selangor
  3. Mont’Kiara International School (MKIS) Kuala Lumpur
  4. Shattuck St. Mary’s School

However, due to the global crisis that we are experiencing right now, the schools are closed. It can take some time for the situation to be normal. Most of the schools have started with an online mode of education. Most of the parents feel that it’s best to stay home for as long as one can to avoid being infected. In case you would like to explore an online schooling platform which offers American curriculum, you can try International Schooling, an online school based in Singapore which is gaining popularity in Malaysia now.
