History & Mission

The International Modern Arabic School was initiated in 2007 as a bilingual, Arabic-British, non-profit institution with a total of 220 students. By the year 2012, the number of students had increased to more than 700 and the school acquired Arabic and International recognition. IMAS now occupies a unique position among Arabic and International schools in the Malaysian Capital, Kuala Lumpur. Today, the total number of students enrolled at IMAS has reached 1,600 students from 68 different nationalities. The school adopts a British curriculum, which gives students the opportunity to obtain the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).


We aspire to be the leading learning institution, of international standards, in both Arabic and English.


Beyond Academic Excellence


Taking inspiration from our motto, the International Modern Arabic School creates a diverse learning environment; one that values the individual and recognizes the potential of each student to do more and be more than they may presently aspire to do or be. At IMAS, we seek to create leaders in their own right – confident, capable individuals, with a God conscious, and a vision to lead and contribute to society at large, and to the Ummah as a whole. Our students graduate with an understanding of the values of honesty, compassion, respect, and responsibility.
Our mission is to develop creative minds with a sense of understanding and compassion. We are committed to the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of our students, preparing them to face the challenges ahead, and cultivating a consciousness of their duty to serve their nation.
