IGB In­ter­na­tional School (IGBIS) is a pre­mier Early Years to Grade 12 in­ter­na­tional school. Sit­u­ated at Sier­ra­mas and Va­len­cia, in the north­west of Kuala Lumpur, IGBIS is an IB World School au­tho­rised for the In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate (IB) Di­ploma Pro­gramme, Mid­dle Years Pro­gramme, and Pri­mary Years Pro­gramme.

IB World Schools share a com­mon phi­los­o­phy – a com­mit­ment to high-qual­ity, chal­leng­ing in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion that IGBIS be­lieves is im­por­tant for our stu­dents.

In an in­clu­sive learn­ing com­mu­nity, our stu­dents re­ceive a chal­leng­ing, car­ing and holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion. Our team of ex­pe­ri­enced IB ed­u­ca­tors are trained to de­liver an in­te­grated 21st cen­tury pro­gramme, em­pow­er­ing our stu­dents to be life­long learn­ers who aim to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to our global so­ci­ety.

In pre­par­ing stu­dents for life in a fast chang­ing, in­creas­ingly com­plex and more in­ter­de­pen­dent global com­mu­nity, and to give real sub­stance to the crit­i­cal goal of en­sur­ing that stu­dents ‘learn how to learn’, IGBIS con­sid­ers that best prac­tice in ed­u­ca­tion achieves the best re­sults. The highly re­garded IB pro­gramme helps stu­dents to de­velop the in­tel­lec­tual, per­sonal, emo­tional, and so­cial skills to live, learn, and work in a rapidly glob­al­iz­ing world. As a univer­sity prepa­ra­tion, IB is highly val­ued by lead­ing univer­si­ties world­wide.

The school com­mu­nity is very proud of our in­au­gu­ral Grade 12 grad­u­ates, all of whom achieved out­stand­ing IB Di­ploma re­sults. The school av­er­age of 34 points was well above the world­wide av­er­age of 29 points. All of our grad­u­ates who ap­plied to univer­sity are now at­tend­ing some of the top in­sti­tu­tions around the world.

Now in its third year of op­er­a­tion, IGBIS of­fers a va­ri­ety of sub­jects, in­clud­ing a fo­cus on sports, the visual and per­form­ing arts, lan­guages, out­door ed­u­ca­tion and ser­vice learn­ing. The school has an es­tab­lished dig­i­tal plat­form, with the lat­est lap­top and touch-en­abled de­vices, and com­pre­hen­sively in­cor­po­rates in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy to en­hance the qual­ity of teach­ing and learn­ing.

To sup­port the com­mit­ment of IGBIS to de­liv­er­ing an ex­cep­tional ed­u­ca­tion, the school’s fa­cil­i­ties are of an ex­cel­lent stan­dard. Visual and per­form­ing arts are catered for in state-of-the-art dance and drama stu­dios, mu­sic prac­tice rooms, and a 540seat theatre. Our im­pres­sive sports fa­cil­i­ties in­clude an indoor gym­na­sium hous­ing three full-size bas­ket­ball courts, a fitness and weight train­ing cen­tre, a FIFA-stan­dard ar­ti­fi­cial turf foot­ball field sur­rounded by a 400-me­tre, 8-lane ath­let­ics track, two swim­ming pools (a 50-me­tre Olympic-size and a 25-me­tre learn to-swim), and ten­nis courts. The school also con­tains a cov­ered 500-ve­hi­cle park­ing lot, elim­i­nat­ing the need for on-street park­ing, and al­low­ing for stu­dent drop-off and pick-up in a se­cure and safe en­vi­ron­ment.

IGBIS is owned and op­er­ated by Detik Hara­pan Sdn Bhd, a sub­sidiary of IGB Cor­po­ra­tion Ber­had. IGB Cor­po­ra­tion Ber­had is a renowned and high­lyre­spected leader in cor­po­rate ini­tia­tives and prop­erty de­vel­op­ment in Malaysia and be­yond.

The area is well con­nected by the North Klang Val­ley Ex­press­way (NKVE), Le­buhraya Da­mansara Pu­chong (LDP) and Mid­dle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).
