Who We Are

Nilai International School’s motto is, Let Your Light Shine! This recognizes that each child is unique and has their own personal light to develop so that they can illuminate their own path in life, and light the way for others. This personalised, individual approach to learning is essential to the Cambridge and UK philosophies of education. Your child will experience holistic education, loving professional care, and expert teaching to bring out the very best that she or he can be as a student, a human being and an emerging citizen of tomorrow's world.
