How big are class sizes?

Because we place importance on the individual interactions between students and their teachers, class sizes do not usually exceed 28 students.

What facilities do you have?

Our 7-acre campus boasts a range of facilities and amenities to enhance all aspects of our students’ learning and development. Please see our Campus & Facilities page for more.

Does the school offer any after school activities?

At Asia Pacific School, learning doesn’t end when the last school bell rings. To ensure the holistic growth of all of our students, we offer a broad range of co-curricular activities (CCAs) and extra-curricular activities (ECAs) aimed at developing them socially, emotionally and physically. All students are required to do at least one CCA per week (for APSS), while ECAs are optional but strongly recommended.

What is the House System?

Upon joining Asia Pacific School, each student will be assigned to one of four houses. Being part of a school house promotes teamwork and camaraderie, as well as a healthy competitive spirit, as these houses compete against each other in school-wide competitions.

The house system encourages students to interact with others beyond their class and year group, contributing to the vibrant culture of our school.

Are students involved in organising school activities?

Absolutely. We believe the qualities and foundation for being a strong leader should be encouraged and developed at a young age, equipping students with vital skills for life beyond school. Our prefects and other student leaders work together to take the lead in organising events for the school, ranging from inter-house competitions to campaigns aimed at raising funds for charities.

We work with a group of private transporters who are able to provide transportation services to parents. Parents may liaise with these service providers directly on transport requirements concerning their children.

Do the students of the International Curriculum and Malaysian National Curriculum mix during breaks and other activities?

Students of the International Curriculum and Malaysian National Curriculum take their break and lunch at different times. However, by taking part in sports and other extra-curricular activities (ECAs) students from both curriculums have the chance to mix outside classroom settings.
