Kuala Lumpur is one of the most cosmopolitan and international cities in South East Asia and a popular destination for tourists and business travelers. Its claim to fame is not just the spectacular Petronas Towers, but also its bustling markets and an eclectic range of restaurants. Kuala Lumpur is also a major center of business trade and commerce and therefore has a lot of expats living there in the capacity of business people or working professionals. Being the capital of Malaysia there is also a large number of diplomats living in Kuala Lumpur.

Most of the expats living in Malaysia with their families put their children into the many fantastic international schools in Kuala Lumpur. These schools are run by some of the best known school chains in the world and offer some of the leading curricula from around the world to their students. It is not surprising that these international schools in Kuala Lumpur are popular not just amongst the expats, but also the locals on account of the stellar education standards that they boast. As regards the international schools of Kuala Lumpur fees, these vary from institution to institution and are impacted by what they offer to the students.

Let’s get a lowdown on the important international schools of Kuala Lumpur and the fees that they charge.

  1. British International School Of Kuala Lumpur

As the name suggests this is a major international school in Kuala Lumpur, much valued for the fact that it provides a British education to its students. Their annual fee ranges from RM 45,600 at the pre nursery level to RM 99, 970 at the year 13 level.

  1. Global Indian International School, Kuala Lumpur

This international school in Kuala Lumpur  is very popular amongst the expat Indian Community in the city because it offers the Indian CBSE curriculum apart from the British Cambridge curriculum. The total annual fee charged by them for  KG 1 and KG 2 is RM 16,727.60 and for class XII (CBSE) is RM 29,243.60.

  1. The International School of Kuala Lumpur

This is another one of the very well regarded international schools in Kuala Lumpur that are quite popular both amongst the local and the expat populations of the city. The annual fee charged by them is RM 59000 at the Prep Reception level and RM 120,400 at the grade 9 to 12 level. 

  1. IGB International School

IGB International School is amongst the very popular Malaysian international schools. It charges an annual fee of RM 70,100 at grade 1 level and RM 95,800 at grade 12.

  1. Tips Valley

Tips Valley is quite a favorite school with expat parents, who like the way their children turn out after enrolling at this school. The annual fee that they charge is pretty reasonable too and varies from RM 15000 for Foundation 1-Year 1 to RM 22500 for year 7 to 9. 

Conclusion

When it comes to the international schools in Kuala Lumpur fees, one has to bear in mind that most of these schools are world class ones with cutting edge amenities and facilities. That apart, they employ the most highly qualified and experienced faculty. The curricula offered by these schools are amongst the best. Add to that the fact that these schools are largely privately run and you would expect them to charge fees that are higher than those demanded by government aided schools. That being stated, the fees charged by most private international schools in Kuala Lumpur is neither exorbitant nor unreasonable.

Also it varies from school to school with the difference in the fees charged by the most expensive international schools and the least expensive international schools being considerable. Then there is also the fact that many of these international schools offer scholarships to students who excel at academics and sports.

The fee charged by a school may be an important factor in choosing an international school for one’s child, but it is not the most critical one. For instance, for an expat parent, the syllabus being offered by the school to its students may be a more important factor, as would be the medium of instruction being followed. For other parents, it would be the kind of sports facilities available at the school. Then, there would be those, who would pay attention to how far the school is from one’s home.

All things considered, parents who think of sending their children to international schools aren’t exactly strapped for money. Most of them are either well paid expats or reasonably well off locals, who are quite comfortable paying the higher fees charged by most international schools. In any case the Malaysian international schools are some of the best anywhere and sending one’s children to these educational institutions augurs extremely well for the latter’s future.
