Woodlands International School was established in 2013 and is the only accredited international school in Sibu in an ever-changing global world. Woodlands International School offers an unique opportunity to students from Nursery through to Cambridge A’ levels. The school promises the merger of Knowledge, Skills, Values and Leadership with Humility, for all it’s students.
The students get to experience an international curriculum directly taken from the English National Curriculum through the medium of English, in a warm, friendly and nurturing environment. The school’s longterm vision is a diverse learning environment that nurtures a global outlook as well as the godly character of the students.
Woodlands International School, the only international school in the region, offers a supportive and wholesome learning environment where students can refine, improve and apply their talents and skills in a context of support and understanding, where thoughts, perspectives and innovation are respected.
As well as running the IEYC and IPC at the Early Years level, Woodlands is an accredited Cambridge centre and as such we run the full Cambridge curriculum as pre-university entry at the Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE and A Level. At Woodlands, the school aims to nurture the whole child, encourage independence, articulation and global awareness among its students- and there is a strong expectation that Woodlands International School students will make a difference within their community and invest their values and talents wisely.
The combined strengths of the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Cambridge (CIE) encourage students to study a wide range of subject matter in as deep a way as their intellect and interest can allow.
At Woodlands, wholesome ideals and positive character qualities are highly valued and nurtured through early morning assemblies and devotion time, allowing the pupils to be directed into being highly productive and committed young adults within the wider community, as well as further afield.
The Woodlands teachers are highly experienced, compassionate and sensitive individuals who are loving, innovative and versatile in their styles of approach and teaching as well as globally diverse. As such, they are committed to their students and Woodlands families, while at the same time being part of a welcoming and positive school community with a strong sense of family at its heart.
The Woodlands International School faculty team is an active one, whose teachers continue to develop their skills through on-going professional development locally, nationally, and beyond, to ensure they offer high quality teaching and learning. Many of the teachers are expatriates which ensures them to blend the best practices of Malaysia with countries world-wide. The school organises regular field trips and excursions which ensures ideas and concepts in a practical way as a form of value-added education.
Woodlands International School offers a welcoming and nurturing learning environment that encourages realistic, hands-on, real-life and meaningful learning experiences in which students can invest their talents positively, and become passionate about the subject matter they are immersing themselves in.
Classes are conducted in a beautiful and extensive campus which consists of three ICT suites, three dedicated Science labs, a beautiful, modern swimming pool, a futsal and tennis court, a covered basketball court, as well as a multi-purpose hall that can hold well over 500 people.
