Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Established in 2008, Fairview International School Johor Bahru is the premier International school in Malaysia that offers the whole suite of IB curriculum. FISJB's highly qualified teachers, predominantly internationally trained and experienced teachers deliver quality education to students from pre-school to Year 12, culminating to the widely recognized IB Diploma.

Teaching approach of the school

The teaching approach that we used is inquiry-based learning. Inquiry-based learning is an approach to learning that emphasizes the student's role in the learning process. Rather than the teacher telling students what they need to know, students are encouraged to explore the material, ask questions, and share ideas. The students are able to develop ATL skills such as social skills, thinking skills, communication skills, self-management skills and research skills through this approach.
