About HELP International School

As part of the HELP Education Group, HELP International School (HIS) was established in 2014 at Subang Bestari, Selangor, with 500 students and an international team of experienced and passionate leaders and teachers. Eight years later and with an enrolment of over 1,200 students, the School is considered as one of the fastest growing international  schools in Malaysia. Recently, HIS joined 14 other established international schools in Malaysia to be recognised as a Council of International Schools (CIS) Member, alongside 1,360 institutions around the world. Prior to this, HIS was also shortlisted as the International School of the Year in the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Independent School Awards 2019 in the UK.

HIS has been recognised by Apple as a Distinguished School for being a model of innovation in education, and validated by Fieldwork Education as an (International Primary Curriculum) IPC accredited school, with an award for Mastery in International Mindedness, joining 1% of schools worldwide to have attained such an achievement. 

The School’s focus statement, “To ignite a passion for lifelong learning, so that we can nurture resilient, compassionate, critical thinkers in a constantly changing world” reflects our commitment to fully preparing students academically and holistically for the dawn of the new industrial age that is upon us.

With the motto "Life in All its Fullness", we believe that there is more in every child. In integrating Eastern and Western educational philosophies, we seek to discover and bring out the best in each child by nurturing his or her talent and potential. Believing that school is a place where children find joy in everyday experiences, we strive to enable and inspire our students to live life to its fullest.
