An ex­traor­di­nary school

Es­tab­lished in Jan­uary 2014, HIS has a pop­u­la­tion of more than 1,300 stu­dents and more than 170 ex­pe­ri­enced and pas­sion­ate teach­ers from all over the world.

In a short time, HIS has man­aged to rack up an im­pres­sive list of ac­com­plish­ments. Its in­au­gu­ral batch of In­ter­na­tional Gen­eral Cer­tifi­cate of Se­condary Ed­u­ca­tion (IGCSE) stu­dents achieved amaz­ing re­sults last year, with 67% A*s and A's across 21 sub­jects. Six stu­dents were pre­sented the Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards.

The school was awarded a five-star rat­ing by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry un­der the Pri­vate Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tu­tion Qual­ity Stan­dard as­sess­ment (SKIPS).

This year, the school was recog­nised by Ap­ple as a dis­tin­guished school for be­ing a model for in­no­va­tion, lead­er­ship and ed­u­ca­tional ex­cel­lence.

It is also recog­nised as a Com­mon Sense Cer­ti­fied School: Dig­i­tal Cit­i­zen­ship for its ded­i­ca­tion to teach­ing young peo­ple how to be re­spon­si­ble dig­i­tal cit­i­zens.

It has also re­ceived ap­proval as a provider of the much-ac­claimed The Duke of Ed­in­burgh’s In­ter­na­tional Award.

The Bri­tish cur­ric­ula are com­ple­mented by a strong mul­ti­lin­gual pro­gramme that in­cludes the teach­ing of English with a strong em­pha­sis on lit­er­a­ture, Man­darin (com­pul­sory for all stu­dents), Ba­hasa Malaysia, Span­ish and French.

Thus, HIS stu­dents will be able to work, live and con­duct busi­ness in close to 50% of coun­tries in the world.

“We wanted to build a school that stu­dents look for­ward to com­ing to ev­ery morn­ing be­cause it is a place full of ex­cite­ment and dis­cov­ery,” says Dr Goh Chee Leong, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of HIS.

“Our school logo fea­tures the rain tree, which is a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the full­ness and abun­dance of life. It also rep­re­sents the
