Oasis International School to Open in Kuala Lumpur Fall 2018
Oasis International Schools is excited to announce the 2018 opening of our new school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Oasis Enterprises has been setting the groundwork for this project for the last four years, and recently received the license from the Ministry of Education in Malaysia.
The school will be located in the Kota Kemuning area, just beside the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE). A partnership between the IJM Land SDN BHD and Oasis has been signed; the school will be located in the beautiful new Bandar Rimbayu township development.
Phase I of the building construction will begin shortly, with a capacity of nearly 600 students; when completed, the facility will house around 1200 students. The school will be the third school in Klang Valley which uses the American System. Mr. Ben Hale, Director, states: “We will offer an innovative academic model which offers a wide variety of curricular and co-curricular programs taught by world-class American educators.” The K-12 program will also specialize in high-tech integration into the educational process from the earliest grade levels. “Every student and teacher will have access to technology that will enhance the educational process,” states Jessica Hale, Director of Learning Innovation and Technology.
“OIS-KL will be a school that values students, is priced reasonably, and staffed by top educators in their respective fields,” adds Ben Hale, KL School Director.
Mr. Hale adds, “As a part of a worldwide network of international schools, we feel we can start this school at a very high level and be among the best schools in Malaysia very quickly. Our home office is already beginning the process of recruiting certified American educators trained to teach in an international context. This is a college-preparatory school that will quickly gain accreditation, and whose graduates will attend the finest universities in the world.”
Dr. Joe Hale, president of Oasis, adds, “My first visit to KL to consider putting an international school here was in 1995. It’s taken a while, but we’re very thrilled to be adding one of the world’s great cities to our school network.” Oasis operates schools in Korea, Japan, Singapore, China, Indonesia, Kenya, Ghana, Turkey, Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Brazil, and the USA. NorthStar Academy, the network’s on-line school is rated tops among all on-line high schools in the USA, and is fully accredited with AdvancEd. Oasis International School will immediately begin the accrediting process with Western Association of Colleges and Schools (WASC).
“We expect the KL school will quickly become one of our largest schools in the network,” adds Dr. Hale.
