Borneo International School is a part of an educational group which owns other notable international and private schools (such as United International School, Nobel International School, Havil International School, and the Legacy private school) in various parts of Malaysia, with a legacy that has more than fifteen years of involvement in education and its related fields.
Borneo International School in particular, had been established to offer an affordable international education to families who had not ever thought of an international education that they could manage.
The school strongly believes that education is a lifelong process. The school recognises the need for a holistic educational approach and offers a comprehensive learning environment to nurture responsible and trustworthy individuals.
Borneo International School further believes that laying the proper moral and educational foundations will prepare children for academic excellence and develop their personal character. Children who are equipped with extensive yet applicable knowledge whilst possessing virtuous characteristics will definitely be seen as welcome additions to society.
Accordingly, Borneo International School offers their students an internationally acclaimed educational system through the adoption of the United Kingdom’s Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) syllabus.
In addition, the school conducts character-transformation programmes (using materials that have been developed in-house) to equip our students with a broader spectrum of understanding and addressing societal issues. This will help prepare them for more informed decision-making at all stages of development into adulthood.
They strive to develop in all pupils the moral attributes within the framework of a mutually respectful and caring environment. It is their ultimate aim to transform future generations of children into individuals and adults who embody integrity in every aspect of their lives.
The school works hard to bring out the best in children by providing them with both academic and social guidance, not to mention motivating them to flourish beyond the purview of school. Borneo International School offers the Cambridge International curriculum to primary, middle school and secondary students.
The school strives to instil 5 core values within students namely academic excellence, character building, social responsibility, passion for lifelong learning and communication and engagement. The school follows a perfect balance of pedagogy and technology to achieve this.
The school is nestled at a location in Tabuan Laru, about four kilometres north east of the Kuching International airport and around seven to eight kilometres from the Kuching city centre.
Borneo International School is a co-educational academic institution and adheres to the British educational curriculum, which will eventually enable the students to receive international educational qualifications, via Cambridge University International Examinations (aka the CIE), for which the school is an accredited examination centre. The Cambridge International credentials are recognized worldwide for admission into universities as well as other forms of tertiary education- especially in the UK and Europe.
Borneo International School’s educational expectations will bring out the best of children, in academic and social terms as well as making them more aware of the wider world and their personal opportunities beyond school.
Apart from academia, the school puts a strong emphasis on co-curricular activities. The school has uniformed bodies such as scouting for both boys and girls and the Red Cross. It also has innumerable clubs such as the Interact Club, chess and board games club, drama club, art and design club, music club, science club, English debating and literary club and the Maths club to help students not only to find but to begin pursuing their passion.
Students similarly with get an opportunity to learn a range of sports and extra-curricular sporting activities such as badminton, swimming, football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, netball and table tennis.
