Welcome to Sekolah Sri Knewton, here East meets West, combining the Malaysian curriculum in an international setting, with students across the campus sharing facilities, break times, CCAs and uniting together for school sports teams, under the ‘Knewton Knights’.
Sekolah Sri Knewton adds depth by enhancing the national-level curriculum set and approved by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia. We are one of a select group of schools in Malaysia to be certified a Dual Language Programme (DLP) school, offering Mathematics and Science in both Bahasa Melayu and English.
By enhancing the quality of the core curriculum our students are able to dig deep and maximise their full potential. We believe education is not the process of filling an empty vessel but of igniting the minds of young people so that they can be the best they can be.
As well strengthening the local curriculum, the school shares a campus with Knewton International School, making the most of a vibrant, international environment. Sekolah Sri Knewton students are trilingual, with emphasis placed on proficiencies in three languages, Bahasa Malaysia, English Language and Mandarin.
The curriculum journey will culminate in the UPSR examination (Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah) by the Malaysian Examination Syndicate in Standard 6.
Mathematics and Science are taught in English under the Dual Language Programme from the Ministry of Education Malaysia.
We supplement the Malaysian textbooks with English textbooks published in the UK. This is to ensure that our students enhance students English literacy skills.
Lower Secondary level covers a period of three years where students will take the PT3 (Pentaksiran Tingkatan 3) or Lower Secondary Evaluation at the end of Form 3.
Every moment is focused on supporting your child to grow and get better. Students thrive with our impressive learning facilities and innovative teaching methods. Form 3 is opening in January 2021.
Upper Secondary level prepares students for the SPM examination (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) conducted by the Malaysian Examination Syndicate at the end of Form 5.
The temporary measure of distance schooling is a new experience for me, it’s my first time trying to get work done through online classes and assignments. As the days pass, I’m starting to get used to the distance learning routine that I have implemented into my day. I've learned the importance of time management, I’m able to manage and organise my schedule effectively and accomplishing what’s more important first."
- Xin Ying (Year 10)
"For me, the temporary online learning programme has been very interesting; it has taught me to manage my time well and how to set a good daily routine at home. It has really helped me with my organisational skills and how to stay in control under stress. However, there have been a few challenges with the online learning programme, such as waking up on time to attend lessons and making sure that you don't hand in your work late. Regardless, it has been a really good experience for me and it has taught me a lot of things that can help me a lot in the future."
