MATRIX INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (MIS)

At MIS we provide a learning experience which brings together aspects from the National Curriculum for England, and material from the Cambridge programmes (Checkpoint and IGCSE). Both are appropriately modified to give a unique Matrix education, which guides and engages students through an innovative learning programme. Our teachers are appointed because they believe in the importance of learning and developing each individual student. The majority of our teachers, excluding languages, are expatriate with considerable overseas experience, while in Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia we look to appoint experienced local teachers who also have experience in the international arena.

MIS Primary is divided into two key stages, notably Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). MIS Secondary is also divided into two key stages: Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9) and Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). Our aim at MIS, is to provide a balanced education across the stages within a positive and stimulating environment, where students feel valued and can grow to their full potential.

In our Primary School, students experience learning through play and project based activities which cover a wide range of subject areas, as well as discrete lessons in English Language, Physical Education, Mandarin, Bahasa Malaysia, Mathematics and Science. At the end of Year 6, all students sit for the CIE Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. This is an internationally recognised examination which provides an opportunity to celebrate individual achievement and review areas for further development.

In our Secondary School, at Key Stage 3, students experience a wide range of individual subjects including Mathematics, English Language, English Literature, Science, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin, French, Computer Studies, History, Geography, Drama, Art, Music, Global Citizenship and Physical Education. At the end of Key Stage 3 all students sit for the CIE Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science.

At Key Stage 4 the learning programme becomes a little more specific with regards to student choice, although we do advise our students to maintain a balance across the disciplines. Students study the core subjects of Mathematics, English Language, at least one Science (Chemistry, Physics or Biology) and one Humanities (Geography, History or Business Studies) as well as Bahasa Malaysia. They are then able to select three additional subjects from a range of areas including English Literature, Art, Drama, Accounting, Music, Computer Studies, Information Communication Technology, Mandarin and Physical Education. In addition to these subjects, students also undertake compulsory PE which is non-examinable, but provides an opportunity to extend the students, both physically as well as mentally. We use the leading internationally renowned and recognised qualification, the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations.

Assessment in our Primary and Secondary Schools is very important to us, in terms of tracking student progress. In Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 we use a levelling system which enables us to accurately track expected progress. In Key Stage 4, the emphasis is on the use of IGCSE grades.

A Matrix education is much more than just about academics. Through an extensive House programme, and school events as well as through Student Council and Prefect systems, students are provided with the opportunity to take on leadership roles, share in the development of the school and work alongside others, so developing respect and understanding which is truly international.
