At the core of Orbix Education Group’s mission is the intent to make high-quality education accessible to a larger community, and to provide the next generation of leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in a technology-driven future. Orbix combines the best of international education from the West with the academic rigour and structure of the East. All Orbix schools employ the world-renowned Cambridge curriculum—the global standard for international education where programmes are designed to stretch, challenge and inspire students.

The Cambridge International A Level programme is the perfect launching pad for students to ready themselves for the challenges of university. Orbix International School in Batu Pahat will be the first school in the area to offer this programme, providing students with the necessary foundation for university and work life. It provides structure whilst encouraging independent thought and action during a most crucial time in a teenager’s development. Students learn to apply theories and concepts to new and familiar situations, engaging logic and critical thought in order to make rational judgments and decisions. The Cambridge A Level programme is a highly lauded accreditation recognised by universities and employers all over the world and puts its graduates in good stead for acceptance into the world’s most prestigious universities.

Orbix schools offer lessons in Artificial Intelligence

The group is also excited to include Artificial Intelligence (AI) lessons in its curriculum. All Orbix schools will offer AI classes conducted by teachers and trainers from AI Academy, an associate company of the Orbix Education Group. 

AI Academy’s comprehensive syllabus was devised in collaboration with iFLYTEK—a Chinese giant established in 1999, globally recognised as a market leader in AI technology. It is the first school of its kind in South East Asia, developed in order to propel Malaysian students into their positions as future captains of industry in the realm of AI and is the first school in Malaysia to introduce AI in its syllabus.

AI Academy is solely dedicated to equipping young minds with the knowledge and skills of the world of artificial intelligence. To put it in the simplest terms, artificial intelligence is a section of computer science that focuses specifically on allowing machinery to simulate the natural intelligence of humans and animals. This wide-ranging field of study includes coding, programming, natural language processing, big data analysis and machine learning. Along with this are lessons in the history and evolution of artificial intelligence, as well as the complex nature of ethics and security that surround its function. 

Laboratories at AI Academy are furnished with state-of-the-art equipment to enhance students’ learning and is so advanced that it provides feedback to teachers, allowing them to detect specific strengths or weaknesses, thus improving their own teaching methods in order to bring out the best in their students. Lessons are offered to students at Orbix within the school’s syllabus, while members of the public will have the opportunity to learn all about AI on the weekends.
