Dedicated to providing quality education, Fairview International School was established in 1978 for parents seeking a more enriching and comprehensive form of learning for their children. From humble beginnings and only a handful of students, Fairview International today is a home away from home for 1,500 students in five campuses across Malaysia and one in Thailand, with representation from 55 different nations.
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. Find out more about the Fairview Family and what we do.
Established in 1978, Fairview was founded by a group of like-minded parents seeking greater educational opportunities for their children. The first enrolment, upon registration with the Malaysian Ministry of Education, was only 29 students.
Since then, Fairview has grown in leaps and bounds, reaching a significant milestone of 30 years in 2009. More important than its physical presence however is how Fairview has touched and moulded the minds of thousands of students. Students who not only achieved outstanding academic results but who also went on to excel in various disciplines.
But despite these achievements, Fairview lacked one thing – a true home. Over the past 30 years, the school and its students had been uprooted several times from one location to another, for various reasons.
As of 2009 Fairview International School is permanently located in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur. This first fully-owned campus features Halls of Residence, IB-approved classrooms and its own function hall and swimming pool contained in a sprawling modern complex.
And as an added feather in its cap, Fairview International School is the only educational institution in Malaysia to offer the full International Baccalaureate Programme from Primary Years to Diploma level, in addition to its comprehensive international syllabus.
We’ve come a long way.
