elc International School



Background

Since its establishment in 1987, elc International School has unwaveringly pursued a single objective: the development of its students into confident and responsible young men and women who attain the highest levels of success academically and in all facets of their lives. Fulfillment of this objective is proven by the school's continuing record of academic excellence and other achievements.

The three core values of the elc International School are embedded in its name-excellence in everything we do, loyalty to each other and the school and commitment to continuous improvement. These values are enhanced by the school motto "Learn to Aspire": students are encouraged to aspire to succeed in reaching their personal, social and academic potential. A traditional ethos, an environment conducive to learning, character building and preparation for the responsibilities, opportunities and challenges of adulthood and positive parent involvement, are essential elements in the school's approach.

elc International School began as a small owner-managed secondary school in 1987, eventually expanding to include a primary school in 1992, and relocating in 1997 to a new campus in Sungai Buloh, Selangor. In 2010, an additional campus was opened in Cyberjaya. All of the campuses are green havens providing a peaceful and inviting learning atmosphere for students.

Even with its growth and development over the years, elc has proudly remained true to its founding principles. As explained by Mrs Sheela Raghu, Principal of the Sungai Buloh Campus, "elc is a school that is small by design. This gives the teachers the undeniable advantage of knowing their students' strengths and weaknesses inside and outside the classroom. Yes, we do have a fantastic track record with Cambridge IGSCE results, but elc focuses on helping each child work towards achieving their best academically and socially."


Traditional Values

While the school follows the English national curriculum, subjects and teaching methods have evolved in keeping with the best practices in Britain and Malaysia. "The school's ethos is steeped in Asian values and flavours of self-discipline, integrity and the pursuit of excellence among the teachers and the students" notes Mrs Raghu.

Students at elc are subject to high expectations, in and out of the classroom. Hard work, commitment and perseverance are reinforced and a firm structured system of nurturing students is provided. Courtesy, concern for others and care for the environment are all also actively encouraged while a firm stand is taken against negative social behaviour. "These 'old-fashioned' values are highly valued in our school and are a part of the foundation of the success on which we have painstakingly built" said Head of Secondary, Chong Soh Nee.


A Record of Excellence

Great pride is taken at elc in the school's outstanding academic achievements, which includes student performance in public examinations. "For the past six years, elc students have scored the highest percentage of distinctions in the Cambridge IGCSE examinations not only in Malaysia but also in the region. For example, in the 2012 IGCSE examinations, elc students scored 72% A* and A, with over 50% of the results being A*" commented Mrs Raghu.



According to Mrs Chong, several students ranked Top in Malaysia or Top in the World for various subjects like physics, ICT, business studies, first language English and Malay at IGCSE level.

Apart from academic excellence, elc students have become well respected for their achievements in sports and a wide variety of extra-curricular and community service activities.

For over 25 years, elc's traditional approach to teaching, learning and character building has brought out the best in the school's students, in and out of the classroom.
