Dear all,

A warm welcome to Rafflesia International School, Puchong. With our dedicated staff and community, we are committed to providing a memorable educational experience for our students. We offer a broad educational programme commencing with Early Years and Primary which  is delivered through the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC)  and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), while the Lower Secondary and IGCSE levels focus on the International Cambridge Curriculum.

These curricula provide a range of opportunities for all our students to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural, sporting and community endeavours. We value collaborative learning, positive relationships and building capacity amongst our students to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future, where problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, being adaptable, empathetic, respectful, resilient, creating and innovating are not only valued concepts, but expected skills, attributes and capabilities.

We support the individual wellbeing of our students and provide a school environment that allows every student to thrive as they work towards achieving their personal best performance. We set high expectations for our students and work hard to safeguard positive emotions across our school community. Moving forward, we are also partners in learning with our students and continuously seeking to deepen their knowledge, providing enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also gently urging our students out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges.

Welcome to Rafflesia International School, Kajang!

Our collective vision is to enable students to become socially responsible, globally conscious citizens who will play their part in improving our world. With a deep commitment to developing values such as mutual respect, empathy, courage, resilience and self-awareness, we aim to ensure that our young people will lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Our younger learners explore their world within the highly immersive International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The dynamic approach to learning provided by our experienced team of teachers allows students to develop intellectual curiosity and extensive understanding. Our enquiry-based approach involves leadership, action and engagement.

At Secondary level, our coherent progression towards the prestigious Cambridge IGCSE qualifications provides our students with academic results that have distinguished international credit. Indeed, as a result of our strong culture of effort and attentive academic guidance our students have consistently achieved Cambridge Outstanding Learner Awards.

Whilst our attentive approach to the details of learning ensures outstanding achievements, we know that learning does not end in classrooms. At Rafflesia, we help students to discover their interests and talents through co-curricular activities, sporting events, cultural celebrations, themed days and field trips. Our vast array of enrichment activities allows students to further develop their academic abilities as well as attributes-for-life: habits of mind such as determination and resilience; interpersonal capacities such as leadership skills, empathy, cultural sensitivity, and kindness.

Come and see what we do. I would love to show you our school and talk to you about how we can work together to provide an inspiring education for your children.
