About Sri Kuala Lumpur School (Sri KL)
At Sri Kuala Lumpur School, we would like to think of ourselves as ‘The Malaysian School In English’. Our medium of instruction is predominantly English but our values are firmly Malaysian along with our culture and our food. That makes us a different sort of international school where the majority of our students are Malaysian, along with our teachers and administrators.
At the same time, Sri KL is the school of choice for many expatriates who wish to embrace Malaysian culture and gain a deeper knowledge of the national language. And all are welcome. Our philosophy has always been to provide a well-rounded and complete education for our students, emphasizing strong community values and discipline whilst at the same time encouraging our students to excel academically.
We’re also believers in the old adage that healthy bodies make healthy minds and our commitment to sporting and co-curricular activities reflects this belief.

How would you rate Sri Kuala Lumpur School (Sri KL)?
Sri Kuala Lumpur School by far the best international school I have worked in.
Terrible management and communication between parents and school. I paid for a private education for my child only for Sri Kuala Lumpur to prioritise their own image and reputation rather than striving to actually teach my children. There is a poor healthcare system and the standards of teaching are dirt poor. Teachers were unqualified and almost uncomfortable to be around with. I could name several instances of Tan Sun Seng, the most unqualified madman that rose to power as principle due to the pandemic, where he's deliberately covered up instances of his administration screwing up. The school won't tell you that they've been shut down by the Ministry of Health, had several police investigations into improper misconduct between staff and students, and had such a piss poor support system during the pandemic that it drove a child to end their own life. Facilities are old, run down, and the building is quite frankly inaccessible with terrible traffic. SS15 isn't exactly the safest place to let your child roam free after school with several cases of bag snatching while students walk out after school.
Sri KL helps you find what you enjoy and actually help you make something out of it. It’s worth it.
Outdated. Seemingly about values
A great school with Asian Values, International Excellence.
The worse school I've ever been to, the teacher's treat students like rubbish. They'll always force us to do something we don't want to. Wanna hear something extremely disappointing? Bribery. There's bribery in this school, some parents will pay the principal to get their own child good grades. There's a lot of bullying here, the teachers wouldn't even be bothered if the victim is bullied, but they'll blame it on them and say " why are you so weak " like isn't the teachers suppose to do something instead of sitting there in the corner watching the students getting punched, kicked etc. The guards around the school are just disgusting, caught a guard red-handed the last time it was around 2019. The guard stared at my friend's skirt and started to laugh with his friends. The secondary principal doesn't care at all, me and my friends had already reported this issue 14 times, and all the principal had to say was " Ok, I'll take action now get out of my office " . Really disappointing.
Well known school, trusted n reputable school, recommended school from all friends, Will consider for my daughter future school
Dedicated teachers, strong values system and consistent outstanding academic performance
So, I will first review the primary school. There are decent space & enough facilities to cope with all the student which includes the canteen, playground, courtyard, library, pool, gym & etc. However, the pool water is always very cold. For teachers, strictly based on my experience, they are just ok. There are some good ones who actually teach you will incorporating it in a fun way but more of the older teachers have a considerably more traditional approach which I feel doesn't keep up with the "21th century learning needs". To clarify what I mean by traditional I meant it like the "asian way" where teachers don't teach student to inquire about the subject & just pay attention to get good grades. This is again, strictly based on personal experience. For music & arts, I give it a 4 since there are the tools & materials to properly study those subjects like after school band or during basic music (yr1-3) & recorder (yr4-6). I don't have much to say about about academics cause to me, there is anything that stands out in terms of the way students are being taught & since it is such a wide topic that I am unsure whether the review meant by how it has improved our academic scores or something else. Sport is good I guess? There is a pool, gym, basketball stadium, futsal field & a large hall that can accommodate the many sport related activities. In term of science facilities for primary, there is a lab but it is barely used in & there aren't many activities or experiments that students can carry out which is the reason why I gave it a poor instead of acceptable. Technology is good as there are enough computers & even smartboards in classrooms though not always used by teachers. Moving on to secondary school. Its harder to give a review since I am at my second year in secondary & it had been mostly online studying due to the MCO but offer what I have first. There are better facilities here which included a room for woodwork, a needlework room, a cookery & 3 science labs for each major (biology, physics & chemistry) which is a big improvement from the primary one. So far my teachers have been pretty good too. Well..most of them. For music & arts, it was a surprise when we had singing in music. Unfortunately we apparently didn't have "harmony" but you know what, idc about that. For Arts, we generally used a lot more of the sketch book so it doesn't really go to waste cause during primary we did more on art block & our sketchbooks were usually around 1/4 filled while now its about 2 to 3/4. I don't have anything to say for academic & in term of co-curriculum, it has a much larger variety thought it was confusing when I saw that cookery was only for year 10 girls. Sexist? idk. FYI for those deciding on bring your child to srikl, I am not trying to say bad things about my school but some of the curriculum mentioned on the school's website need to be paid & some I haven't seen in the list of option during my time at school when they allowed up to choose.
Reasonable price, good quality education. School compound is not very big. Maybe 5 or 6 acres? But it is well planned so there are many facilities. Swimming pool, gym, art rooms, dance studio, auditorium, music centre, science labs, library etc. Attended a few music and drama performance and was very impressed. Very excellent standard. BM at SPM is compulsory for all Malaysian students which is why I send my kids there. My kids find this hard but they need this to survive in Malaysia. Results at IGCSE are good. Sports standard is high. Lots of good swimmers and runners in the school so difficult to get on school team. But my kids run and swim for their houses. Teachers are strict but friendly from what I see at the report card meetings. Fees include food which is convenient. I don’t have to give my kids any pocket money during the week. They like most of the meals provided but not all. I like the school values. I would recommend this school.

Teachers are wonderful. Very well run, academically and extra curricular activities. Established non-academic programmes. Dedicated teachers and management. Oldest private school in Malaysia.
