NOTE FROM CEO
Dear parents, welcome and thank you for your interest in Westlake International School.
Joyce Yuen, CEO
WIS stands apart from other international schools. As the only international school in Kampar with full boarding facilities located within the secure environment of more than 20 acres of beautiful and serene school campus, we have already established a reputation for excellence. We provide the best of both worlds: a clean, green and safe study environment only a couple of hours from the hustle and bustle of Malaysia’s capital city.
We offer the international recognised British Cambridge curriculum for Primary School Years 1 to 6 and Secondary School Years 7 to 11 leading to graduation after the IGCSE O-levels examinations. Additionally, we have the A-levels programme to prepare students for successful admission to universities worldwide.
We are proud of the fact that many of our students come to us by word-of-mouth introductions. We believe this is a direct result of the “school as a community” feeling among the students, parents, teachers and staff. In our boarding houses, we limit the number of boarding students per boarding house parent to preserve the closeness and emotional support which are so important for students in their teenage years.
The WIS school philosophy of educational excellence, character building and community partnership, lies at the heart of our mission to help our students achieve their full potential. We aim to develop independent learners who are also self-leaders. We encourage behaviour that demonstrates integrity, wisdom, responsibility and respect. We believe that teachers hold the key to students’ motivation to learn therefore we actively seek teachers who share our vision and have the drive to motivate students to excel and become powerful learners.
Globalisation and technology will impact everyone’s life more and more in the years to come. As such, it is essential for students of today to possess the skills and knowledge to make wise decisions in this ever- changing and challenging digital environment. With ready-Internet access in the classrooms our students are taught the skills to manage the demands of a high tech globalised world by managing their personal time wisely and making the right choices.
We understand that to reach this goal of developing leaders and life-long learners, we need a strong and effective partnership with parents. We recognize that education is an ongoing and shared responsibility between home and school. We welcome parents as part of the school community and invite them to be partners in this exciting journey with their children. We follow an open door policy to keep parents informed of school developments to ensure that they are able to actively support their children.
Please feel welcome to contact the school if you have any questions or if you wish to visit us.
