At KTJ, students are nurtured by the values and traditions of our British independent school education, which we infuse with the vitality of Malaysian and Southeast Asian culture. We ensure that our students are ready to thrive in the fast-paced and rapidly-changing world outside the school gates. Stepping through our doors, students enter a unique environment where they can grow, develop and thrive. Our teachers are vastly experienced in delivering the British curriculum and in shepherding students onto success in the next stages of their lives.
We genuinely believe in educating the whole person and so KTJ students have the opportunity to develop every aspect of themselves. Outside of the classroom there is an extensive range of sports and extra-curricular activities, in addition to the chances to build character through leadership, community service, careers guidance, and much, much more. We love to see horizons broadened, perceptions challenged and new interests and aspirations sparked.
At KTJ, we take every opportunity to ensure students are instilled with a strong set of values. Central to this are the school values of integrity, empathy and mutual respect. We pride ourselves in producing ambitious, well-rounded and considerate global citizens. Our students have every opportunity to develop independence and self-confidence, ensuring readiness for their journey onto further academic study, higher education and the world beyond.
