The History of Fairview
Dedicated to providing premier yet affordable education, Fairview International School was established in 1978 for parents seeking a more enriching and comprehensive form of learning. From its humble beginnings and only a handful of students, Fairview International School is now home to over 2,500 students in four IB World Schools across Malaysia, representing over 55 different nations.
Established in 1978, Fairview was founded by a group of like-minded parents seeking greater educational opportunities for their children. Despite the schools many achievements, Fairview lacked one thing – a true home. Until 2009 the students and staff of the Kuala Lumpur campus had been uprooted several times from one location to another, for various reasons.
Since then, Fairview has grown in leaps and bounds, reaching a significant milestone of 35 years in 2014. More importantly, Fairview has inspired the minds of thousands of students over the years; students who not only achieve outstanding academic results but are nurtured socially, emotionally and physically. Our students leave the halls of Fairview as internationally minded global citizens, equipped with essential skills for the many challenges of the 21st century.
Fairview International School is the only IB World School in Malaysia to offer the continuum of IB programmes; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).
Fairview International School is a member of Fairview Global, a growing regional network of international schools dedicated to enriching learning in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Since 2009 Fairview International School’s Kuala Lumpur campus is now permanently located in Wangsa Maju. This first fully-owned campus features Halls of Residence, classrooms, auditorium, playing fields, sports halls and swimming pool contained within a sprawling modern complex.
