About Us


The Kuala Lumpur campus in Wangsa Maju is the home of the first authorized IB World School in Malaysia to provide the continuum of IB programmes, PYP, MYP and DP. It is nestled just 15 minutes from the city centre, surrounded by a reserve forest that supports the learning environment with its serene and green surroundings. The campus supports the IB philosophy and students get the chance to learn via creative and innovative IB pedagogies.

Fairview's History

Dedicated to providing premier yet affordable education, Fairview International School was established in 1978 for parents seeking a more enriching and comprehensive form of learning. From its humble beginnings and only a handful of students, Fairview International School is now home to well over 2,000 students in four IB World Schools across Malaysia, representing over 65 different nations.

Established in 1978, Fairview was founded by a group of like-minded parents seeking greater educational opportunities for their children. Despite the schools many achievements, Fairview lacked one thing – a true home. Until 2009 the students and staff of the Kuala Lumpur campus had been uprooted several times from one location to another, for various reasons.

Since then, Fairview has grown in leaps and bounds, reaching a significant milestone of 35 years in 2014. More importantly, Fairview has inspired the minds of thousands of students over the years; students who not only achieve outstanding academic results but are nurtured socially, emotionally and physically. Our students leave the halls of Fairview as internationally minded global citizens, equipped with essential skills for the many challenges of the 21st century.

Fairview International School is the only IB World School in Malaysia to offer the continuum of IB programmes; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).
