Dalat International School
Dalat’s beautiful seaside campus is located on the island of Penang, Malaysia in the Straits of Malacca. The school has 7 acres of well-maintained facilities, modern classrooms, new boarding facilities by the sea, athletic fields and courts, and large performance spaces fully equipped to accommodate 720 students ages preschool through 18 years.
Dalat is a small American Christian school that allows for teachers and staff to really know and work one-on-one with each student. Close relationships between faculty and students and a high level of engagement with families creates a strong sense of community at Dalat. Through the pursuit of an education for life, shared experiences, and exploring new cultures together, students who live and learn at Dalat use their skills to thrive in the world. Learning support is available for students with mild to moderate special needs. All students have access to school computers, and secondary students are assigned personal iPads to use during their time at Dalat.
The four-year program of secondary studies leading to an American High School Diploma balances broad exposure to major academic disciplines, while encouraging students to pursue in-depth study in areas of personal interest through choices of many electives. Dalat provides a North American-based education, preparing students for entry into colleges and universities worldwide, assisted by a college counseling program. At the completion of four years of high school (24 credit unit), students receive the high school diploma and are fully prepared for university and life.
Students of all nationalities with good use of the English language are welcome to apply to Dalat, as we seek a diverse student body. Dalat’s policy states that all students attending the school are expected to live with their parents or documented legal guardian in Penang, or to live in one of the school’s boarding homes. All expatriate students studying at Dalat must apply for a student pass.
