Welcome to UUM International School! The purpose of this (new) website is to inform you of some aspects of school life here at UUMIS. UUMIS is one of the pioneering International schools in the Northern part of Malaysia and is fully owned by Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) through its subsidiary. UUM is a large, prestigious public university in the state of Kedah, Malaysia.
We offer a current, relevant and engaging curriculum, all in English, with a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy which are crucial for students in the early years. Our students also have access to a variety of specialist curriculum areas including Physical Education, Sciences, Visual Arts, Information Technology, Arabic language and Malay Language. Students coming from Muslim families also attend Islamic classes.
UUMIS is all about developing the whole child. It is our endeavour to ensure learning is enjoyable, challenging and engaging. We believe that learning is beyond the scope of textbooks and happens every second of a child’s life. Learning and teaching for us is about nurturing the individual – academically, spiritually, emotionally and physically – to become lifelong learners. We strive to help students develop an understanding of the world and their community and enabling them to become contributing citizens.
At UUMIS, we develop quality relationships - be it with students or the parents - built on respect, inclusiveness and a strong sense of welcome. We are appreciative that families entrust us with the opportunity to educate the children of our community. For those who are considering UUMIS as a school for their children, please feel free to contact us anytime or stop by for a visit of our wonderful school. I can't wait to meet you and your family!
