ST John’s In­ter­na­tional School (SJIS) strives to in­spire ev­ery stu­dent to ac­com­plish aca­demic, per­sonal and so­cial goals based on faith, knowl­edge, think­ing, cre­ativ­ity and ex­cel­lence.

The school is lo­cated within the lush green sur­round­ings of the Bukit Nanas For­est Re­serve, against the back­drop of the KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Tow­ers. SJIS is a melt­ing pot of stu­dents from dif­fer­ent cul­tures and back­grounds.

Es­tab­lished in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the La Salle Broth­ers in Malaysia, SJIS has links with the La Salle or­gan­i­sa­tion that has an out­stand­ing and rep­utable his­tory of de­liv­er­ing ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tion not only in Malaysia but also in 82 coun­tries world­wide.

SJIS is a new en­vi­ron­ment for stu­dents seek­ing ex­cel­lence in ed­u­ca­tion, sports and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

SJIS of­fers the in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Cam­bridge GCE A-Lev­els, IGCSE (Years 10 and 11) and Lower Sec­ondary (Years 7 to 9) pro­vided by the Univer­sity of Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Examinations (CIE), one of the largest providers of in­ter­na­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tions world­wide.

For the May/June A-Lev­els and IGCSE examinations, SJIS ob­tained 100% passes. For A-Lev­els, 53% of the stu­dents se­cured As and Bs while 83% se­cured As and Bs for the IGCSE examinations.

School ameni­ties

The cam­pus has air-con­di­tioned class­rooms, a cafe­te­ria, a li­brary and two full- fledged science labs. SJIS has a small teach­er­stu­dent ra­tio with an av­er­age of 25 stu­dents per class.

Stu­dent safety is equally im­por­tant at SJIS. Cur­rently, SJIS col­lab­o­rates with the po­lice and RELA au­thor­i­ties as an added se­cu­rity mea­sure. The premises is also mon­i­tored by CCTV.

A ready path is avail­able for stu­dents who com­plete their GCE A-Lev­els to the ter­tiary level ei­ther lo­cally or over­seas. SJIS of­fers a 1Malaysia Grant worth RM6,000 for stu­dents en­rolled in GCE A-Lev­els, IGCSE and Lower Sec­ondary in 2013. Stu­dents can also ap­ply for schol­ar­ships at SJIS and a 10% bur­sary is given to all chil­dren and grand­chil­dren of mem­bers of the Lasal­lian Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion. Stu­dents from all Lasal­lian schools also en­joy the same bur­sary.

As a city cam­pus, SJIS is lo­cated within Kuala Lumpur’s trans­port hub at Pudu. The Plaza Rakyat (Am­pang Line), Masjid Jamek (Am­pang and Ke­lana Line) and Bukit Nanas mono­rail train sta­tions are all within 10 min­utes’ walk.
