Welcome to the Asia Pacific International School (APIS) – an integral development within the APIIT Education Group (APIIT).
Established in 1993 as the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology, APIIT developed an enviable reputation for more than a decade as Malaysia’s premier Higher Education Institution for Technology education and training, before achieving University College status in 2004, resulting in the formation of the Asia Pacific University College of Technology & Innovation (UCTI). UCTI swiftly developed into one of Malaysia’s leading International Universities for Technology, Business and Engineering, which has itself evolved into what is now known as the Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation (APU), with its recent attainment of full University status.
APIIT, UCTI and now APU have all shared a common philosophy of transforming young school leavers into qualified, employable professionals, and this is reflected in the consistently high employment rates of its more than 18,000 graduates.
As such, the launching of APIS in September 2012 strengthens and extends the APIIT Education Group’s focus on developing young minds, and further reaffirms the Group’s involvement in the Schools sector, which started with the establishment of the APIIT Smart School in 2006.
At APIS, we firmly believe that success truly begins with the best education. This certainly starts with the curriculum itself, where we will offer the internationally recognised Cambridge IGCSE
Programme augmented with a broad range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. With a strong emphasis on technology as an enabler to support learning, APIS will adopt and continuously enhance educational practices to nurture our students and bring out their analytical and innovative thinking capabilities.
In achieving the above, the APIS will provide a stimulating environment that allows our students to enjoy the learning experience and excel in their studies. The facilities available at APIS will strongly complement students’ potential where talents are unlocked and accelerated in academia, in the liberal arts, in the sciences, technology and sports. This great balance between academic and other aspects of education would ultimately provide the student with a comprehensive and holistic nurturing process.
The school’s team of qualified and experienced academic staff are being carefully selected so as to ensure that they are able to fully address the requirements of the IGCSE curriculum, while at the same time motivate and encourage students through interactive teaching and provide impetus for students’ confidence building in a conducive atmosphere.
APIS will provide the same warm and friendly learning environment that our Smart School is well known for – this is an environment that promotes camaraderie between students and teachers which personifies the ‘one big family’ culture.
We truly believe that all these ingredients, coupled with the best international curriculum, will help unlock your child’s true potential and shape them into well-rounded members of society, equipped with the relevant knowledge, competencies, skills and attitude to successfully contribute in a global community.
