Additionally, Philip is very keen to build a positive relationship with the parents during this exciting educational journey to ensure that the school can grow forward.

Outside of school, Philip is married and has a beautiful daughter. He also enjoys spending time with his family, reading historical fiction, walking, and an occasional round of golf.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to UIS Kuala Lumpur and thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

It is my pleasure to introduce this new and exciting school to you that aims to prepare students for the 21st century global society.

Academic success is a key priority. Thus, the combination of Cambridge International Curriculum (British-based Curriculum) and International Primary Curriculum during the primary/elementary school will lay the foundations for Secondary School and the rigorous Cambridge IGCSE exams.

Furthermore, we will integrate technology as well as IT skills into the curriculum and CCA programme to ensure our students have the skills to succeed in the fast-paced development of the 21st century.

Additionally, we equip students with character virtues, values, and practical wisdom to be able to make a positive difference to their communities and the world around them. Although success is important, the journey to achieve their goal is also vital. Therefore, we aim to develop high achieving students with virtues such as integrity, honesty and empathy.

This website will give you a glimpse of the exciting school and CCA programme that we offer. We hope it encourages you to make contact and come to visit us! Our doors are open, and we are happy to assist and answer all of your questions.

A successful school is a partnership between teachers, students and parents. I look forward to helping this partnership grow and develop over the coming years.

Yours sincerely,

Philip McCormick

Integrating 21st Century Skills into Core Curriculums

While maintaining a strong focus on core curriculum which includes British school curriculum with Cambridge IGCSE and International Primary Curriculum, we aim to complement the formal curriculum with a series of CCAs which students’ experiences form a cornerstone of their holistic education for the 21st century. The rapid advancement of technological innovations, global competition, and a push towards a knowledge-based economy require that our students learn to have a repertoire of soft and hard skills to enable them to succeed in a future economy that is still in the making. Through our unique CCA experiences, our students can exhibit soft skills like creativity, leadership abilities, teamwork, flexibility, communication skills, resilience and an enterprising spirit that will enable them to stay relevant for the future.

Beyond and within the curriculum and classroom, our Schools focus on eight critical characteristics in our learning content and experiences which is supported by education technology (Edtech) including VR, AR, 3D printing and robotics amongst others.

Our Eight Critical Characteristics

A School Supported By Apple Education

Supported by Apple’s technology, teaching tools and education resources including creativity and coding curricula, UIS KL aims to transform primary and secondary education systems in order to prepare the next generation of the ever-changing 21st Century!

We teach students to develop and communicate ideas through Video, Photography, Music, and Drawing. They help ignite creativity by giving teachers fun and meaningful ways to bring these skills into any lesson, at any grade level.

Everyone Can Code

Through this curriculum, we will guide students through Swift Playgrounds, an app that teaches coding for kids through a world of interactive puzzles and playful characters, while introducing coding in the same language used by professional app developers.
