About this school : St. John’s International School or SJIS is a private-funded International School that is in collaboration with the La Salle Brothers Malaysia. The establishment of SJIS is in keeping with one of the priorities of the Lasallian Family in Malaysia to cater to the needs of young Malaysians and also to link the school with a Lasallian organization that has an outstanding and reputable long-history of delivering excellent education not only in Malaysia but in 82 countries world-wide.
SJIS presents a new environment for students from different cultures and backgrounds to be nurtured in excellence in education, sports, and extra-curricular activities. We realize that a holistic education is also one that promotes values of respect for all and accompanied by a sense of responsibility. Good discipline and strong student-faculty relationship are emphasized to create an atmosphere of mutual learning within the School.
SJIS is part of the excellent scholastic tradition that began with St. John’s Institution, Kuala Lumpur in 1904. The SJIS building is part of the heritage St. John’s Institution edifice of red and white brick ‘Grecian-Spanish’ architecture that was built in the 1930s. The school sits within the lush green environment of the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve against the backdrop of the KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Towers.
Students and parents recognise that education at SJIS has distinct characteristics. Members of SJIS faculty are chosen for top academic qualification and methodic competency. They are selected to have penchant for scholastic care of students and consistently maintain updated knowledge and practices. We envision a great learning experience for the students of SJIS. Our focus on varied exposures and well-balanced needs of students will set them on the path to brilliant success in higher studies and a bright future.
