Welcome to the website of the International School of Penang, (ISP), Uplands, one of the oldest and most established international schools in Malaysia. I hope you have found the answers to your questions. Information about the curriculum, subjects, ethos and fees is one thing, but to get a real feel for the school a visit is a must.
We encourage students and their families to spend some time with us in order to have a first hand experience. Prospective students nearly always choose ISP once they have had a visit.
Travelling in Penang can sometimes take longer than expected, finding the right school at the same time as a place to call home should be taken into the equation. Extra-curricular activities and concerts are well attended to make the most of the school experience.
It is important that you also know that we have several expectations on students, parents and staff. Self-discipline is encouraged, challenges should be embraced and risks taken. This happens within a framework of fair and firm discipline. Students should enjoy coming to school and feel safe and accommodated. Our curriculum is focused on the goal of the best preparation for the IB Diploma.
I look forward to meeting you in person. We have tried to answer any potential questions you may have on this website, but there are bound to be some that we miss. Please contact us with any queries.
For further information or to make an appointment to visit, please contact the Admissions Officer at the address given below:
