LIKE HOME IN SCHOOL
We are IDRISSI International School Johor Bahru, an innovative International School offering a unique curriculum where the British international syllabus is infused with life values and eco-awareness.
At IDRISSI School @ Johor Bahru, students are free to explore their interests and learn in a bookless medium to provide comfortable and wholesome learning. Their well-being is ensured and their right respected in a fun, yet a modest conventional school environment.
We remove one-syllabus-fits-all to develop a future generation that is flexible and sustainable.
A WHOLESOME CURRICULUM
The IDRISSI International School Johor Bahru Learning System offers both a practical and meaningful curriculum to provide our students with a balanced education that connects and engage them, rather than focusing on rote learning, memorisation and regurgitation. We nurture the love for learning, the desire to explore, and the ability to integrate lessons across all syllabus.
At the end of Key Stage 2, students will be assessed through Cambridge Primary Checkpoint test administered by the Cambridge International Examinations.

A PLATFORM TO CARE AND EXPLORE THE ECOSYSTEM
Our students are not just constrained to the classroom and text book learning environment but are also given the exposure to explore the world wide web and the opportunity to discover, explore and apply their knowledge vocationally in our modest and conventional outdoor classrooms.
With the Eco-scout programme, nature is our students’ main tool. Through patch farming, rainwater harvesting and recycling, they will learn about planet earth and how to care for the environment.
We also encourage active parents’ participation through various volunteering opportunities and engagement to help enhance teaching and learning, as well as teacher-parent relationship. Working collectively with parents allows us to build a stronger school programme that is the blueprint to grooming successful citizens of tomorrow.
FLiP (Year 3 to Year 6)
FLiP is Financial Literacy Program customised for us by leading Financial Education provider MoneyTree Asia Pacific. Unlike most Malaysian schools who offer Financial Literacy as an elective or extra coursework, we teach the subject as part of our school curriculum. Our teachers are trained and certified by MoneyTree as financial literacy educators to instil in our students good money management and understanding of the correlation between earning, budgeting, spending, saving, debt, investing, and giving.
JUNIOR AWARD SCHEME
FOR SCHOOLS (JASS) PROGRAMME
Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) programme is an accredited progressive learning programme offered to our 10-14 year old students to develop their wholesome individuality. The programme is fully aligned with current educational thinking and IDRISSI International School Johor Bahru’s outdoor learning strategy. It is internationally recognised and will give our students an edge over the rest in their education portfolio.
This programme offers recognition in four key areas:
- Regular physical activity

IDRISSI International School is the first international school in Malaysia to implement STEM with Robotics curriculum and now our students in IDRISSI School @ Johor Bahru will experience this exciting subject in their own campus too. The curriculum is accredited and certified by Global STEM Alliance (GSA) and International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA).
The STEM with Robotics curriculum is an interactive and creative method in teaching STEM-related subjects due to its high level of engagement. By using STEM-friendly robots, students learn fundamental engineering concepts, design, building, testing, development and coding basics. Students are given the opportunity to develop robots to solve realistic everyday problems, which helps develop their interest in subjects like mathematics, coding, engineering, science and technology, all of which lead to innovation.
