About Shattuck-St. Mary’s Forest City International School
Shattuck-St. Mary’s Forest City International School welcomed our first students in the fall of 2018. The school is located in Forest City, which is South East Asia’s first ecologically green city located on the southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, with Singapore visible across the Straits of Johor. All the academic, residential and commercial properties in Forest City are adorned with vertical greeneries, sky gardens and rooftop garden systems that form a natural barrier against heat, reduce energy consumption, naturally purify air, conserve rainwater, and reduce noise. It feels like living in a forest with greenery everywhere.
Our students come from both near and far, as citizens of Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Canada, the UK, and the USA. We offer an American curriculum based on the longstanding tradition of academic rigor and innovation that has been established in Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Minnesota over the past 160 years. Shattuck-St. Mary’s Forest City International School offers students a unique opportunity to enjoy an American education in Malaysia as either day or boarding students. Our purpose-built academic campus and residential building create a vibrant educational community where teachers and students live and learn together.
Our teaching faculty brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the American curriculum. Over half of our international teachers are Americans. We also have teachers from Canada, the Philippines, the UK, Australia, Germany, Singapore, and Malaysia. The experience and training our teachers bring to their craft create a truly international learning experience for our students.
