Kingsley International School ethos echoes the wish of every parent: for his or her child to be happy, productive and fulfilled in life. Which is why we aim to inspire curiosity and bring enriching, real-world experiences into the lives of our students. We believe resilience, self-discipline and the ability to relate to others are more vital to achievement than IQ. Caring for students with kindness and firmness – building connections with them and making them feel valued so they can be their best selves. We invest, impart and instil positive values that will empower all children to be life achievers who see the importance of living purposefully and fearlessly. We recognise that for children to become confident, engaged, innovative, reflective, and respectful individuals, that’s who we first have to be.
Kingsley International School believes that students achieved and performed in a positive learning environment that does not encourage any form of bullying. Our culture of care and trust is why our students, parents and teachers believe and support on Kingsley’s way. The School’s bully-free policies are preventive and restorative as harsh discipline does not benefit children. Consistent counselling followed up with reflections are carved out to ensure no one student is singled out or is ignored.
Through the years, we find that healthy behaviours flourish when kids feel understood and empowered. We want all our students to feel connected to the school community. We encourage this through teacher or peer-to-peer interactions geared towards fostering the broadening of minds and knowledge to create personal development and character building.

It is beyond any doubt that Shenq Kang’s achievement is the result of your effort and that of and all his teachers. He has the ability. But the enthusiasm and passion for knowledge was nearly destroyed before he went to Kingsley. attending. By the time we enrolled him in Kingsley, his enthusiasm was almost completely wiped out. KINGSLEY created his success. I am grateful to you and every staff who gave him the chance and built his passion for knowledge. It was Kingsley’s conducive learning environment that contributed to his recent success in ICGSE. He had a perfect score of 100 in Math and 97 in Physics and Chemistry.
Kingsley International School has done a good job so far. The teachers there were very easy to communicate with and the students there were very friendly to help out when I had problems. After studying in Kingsley, I got a clearer picture of my future pathway and career as they have given recommendations about students’ future pathway. Now, I am almost done with my A-levels and felt very grateful that I studied in Kingsley as they cared about students’ academic much.
Every child would remember their time at school. My time in Kingsley has certainly stuck with me and will continue to do so for many years to come. I literally grew up in Kingsley going from primary to secondary school for 8 years. I still fondly remember the memories and laughter from our original, homey campus in the heart of Putra Heights and all the fun times I spent in there. From our humble beginnings we grew into our current, much cooler home. But what makes Kingsley stand out like no other is not the amazing facilities (although they do help!), but the truly stellar team of educators that have devoted themselves completely to the students. I can confidently say without a moment’s hesitation that each and every teacher at Kingsley has left a permanent impression on me and all my friends. To this day, I can still name some of my very best teachers: Ms Priya, Mr Chua, Ms Joanne, Ms Terrisa, Mr Joel, Ms Roslina, Mr Chin, Mr John, Mr Tan (every Kingsley student would agree he made Kingsley so much more memorable for us!), Ms Elaine, Cikgu Sabaria, Chef Sam, Mr Thiru and both Mr Davids! I can personally say that each of them has truly gone above and beyond the call of duty as a teacher. I remember Ms Priya diligently explaining math concepts to me years after she stopped teaching me in year 6. I remember Ms Terrisa doing her very best to bring my standard of Mandarin up to A* levels a week before our exams—and she wasn’t even my teacher! I remember Ms Elaine sacrificing her own time after school to prepare us to her very best for our IGCSE exams. I remember Ms Roslina sitting with me to ensure that every part of my scholarship applications was perfect. I remember having had the best teachers possible who made every moment in school memorable. I can assure anyone and everyone reading this that if you went around the world looking for the best in education, you would always end up back in Kingsley; because what you get here is not just an education. What you get is an experience and a journey of lifelong support that is really like no other.
Throughout my 5 years in Kingsley International School, I’ve learned a great deal of lessons as a student and as a person. From the kitchen chefs to the front office staff, to the teachers, to the management staff, to the security guards of the school, have provided me such a safe and holistic learning environment that has challenged me to step out of my comfort zones. The endless support and love given to me in high school has molded me to be a more ambitious and courageous person which has sparked my passion in business and counseling. It was an amazing learning environment both inside and outside of the classroom, especially the learning journeys which enriched my high school life at Kingsley, allowing me to accumulate a well-rounded high school experience. Personally, Kingsley has been a place of growth that has prepared me for the future in more ways than just academically. Kingsley was just like my second home.Life is full of unexpected events, I’ve been through the highs and lows as a student, just like how you would too. Whatever your dreams shall be, go ahead and dream big. Just make sure you complete what’s necessary and stay focused, because you get there when you get there.
It was my immense luck to have my secondary schooling years in Kingsley International School， a place which has witnessed the milestone of my growth throughout the five years. I am always grateful and thankful for all the opportunities given to enjoy the wonderful facilities and experiences in this school. I remember how excited I was on the first day entering the school, can’t wait to make new friends, meet new teachers and enjoy the school’s facilities! Although putting myself into a completely new environment seems like a challenge to me, I stepped out my first step to speak to a new friend on my first day of school. They are friendly and outgoing as they talked to me like they have known me for years! My five years of studying in Kingsley was a wonderful and memorable experience as it has successfully developed my leadership skills, public speaking skills, improved my English speaking ability and also friendship managing skills. Most importantly, the learning experiences. I missed how much my teachers spent time telling interesting stories in class, entertained us with hilarious videos, learning interactive games and also how my friends and I spent time bonding together in all the events held by Kingsley International School such as the learning journey, marathon run, charity bazaar and Duke of Edinburgh Awards! It was such a fun and delightful experience that I can never stop telling stories about it! I used to be a shy quiet and timid girl. I turned into a brave, courageous and outgoing person! I want to say a big thank you to all my teachers including Mr Khoo, Mr Thiru, Ms Priya and others. Time flies and now I have graduated from Kingsley International School. Thank you for bringing me to a brighter future and shaping me into a better person. Lastly, I cannot forget the delicious food served in Kingsley. I miss the food. Kingsley International School, I miss you and I love you. You are the best thing that happened in my life!
