Our Heritage

Asia Pacific School is a pioneering Malaysian private school in the Klang Valley with a long heritage of education excellence. We were first established as APIIT Smart School in 2006, offering the Malaysian National Curriculum, and quickly gained a strong reputation as one of the premier schools in the Klang Valley.

APIIT Smart School was a part of the renowned APIIT Education Group (APIIT), a leading private education provider in Southeast Asia with over 25 years of experience in providing quality education. APIIT first began as the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology in 1993. The institute quickly gained a reputation as a leader in technology education and training, nurturing highly competent and industry-ready professionals who are highly sought after by employers. By 2004, it had grown in prestige to become the Asia Pacific University College of Technology & Innovation. Within a short time, the APIIT Education Group consisted of the multiple award-winning Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation (APU), the Ministry of Education 5-Star certified Asia Pacific Language Centre (APLC), and the APIIT Smart School.

The establishment of APIIT Smart School was a natural progression for APIIT, extending its successful educational philosophy of helping young people grow into well-rounded and global-minded individuals from nursery to tertiary age. As part of this prestigious heritage, students at APS experience a seamless development of life skills, leadership, innovation and creativity which prepare them to thrive as global citizens.

In 2012, APIIT Smart School was restructured and became known as Asia Pacific School (APS), with the campus consisting of Asia Pacific Smart School (APSS), offering the Malaysian National Curriculum, and the Asia Pacific International School (APIS), offering the English National Curriculum adapted for an international context. With this, APS became one of the few dual stream private schools in Malaysia.

Today, we are proud to be part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), after having been acquired by the global education group in 2019. ISP is a network of over 45 international and private schools spread across 12 countries around the world. ISP’s values and Amazing Learning philosophy are closely aligned to our own educational heritage and values of holistic, student-centred education.

As part of the ISP global network, our horizons and opportunities are broadened. Now, our educators can access teaching resources and methods shared across the network, while our students enjoy international learning opportunities with inter-school events like the ISP Model United Nations or ISP International Summer Camp, which are hosted by schools from around the world.

With a strong heritage in education and a modern, progressive outlook, we’re excited about what the future has in store for us here at Asia Pacific School.
