Affiliated Schools

University College Fairview (UCF), established along with the Fairview network of IB World Schools throughout the Asia Pacific region has embarked on providing 21st Century Education training workshop for all interested public schools in Malaysia. The integrated curriculum training programme at UCF aims to holistically combine lectures and classroom practical training.

Affiliated schools are all public schools that wants to embrace 21st century education and leaning on the best practices of IB Worlds Schools, who are our collaborative partners.

Fairview International School is the first IB World School in Malaysia to offer the continuum of the IB programmes from age 3 to 19. The programmes namely, the Primary, Middle and Diploma programmes, are designed to steer away from traditional rote learning to fulfil the learning needs of children today in this 21st Century.

Thus, children master a range of skills, develop conceptual understanding, learn through inquiry and at the same time acquiring a set of learner profile attributes, creating the global citizens for tomorrow.

Fairview’s outstanding results year after year speak for the success of the programme. Fairview students have been admitted to world renowned universities on scholarship with some earning credit waivers for the courses they undertake.

In this digital age, children need the know–how to face the uncertain future, come to grips with the massive amount of information and learn how to cope with the speed of the numerous changes that happen by the second.

Fairview, since 2007 has embarked on this mission to educate the children to not just survive but have the skills to make a difference in the world – Education For A Better World.
Having matured and expanded to 5 campuses, Fairview has a significant number of teachers trained in various aspects of the IB programmes.

Our faculty at UCF consists of not just IB trained teachers but also certified workshop leaders, school visiting team members, conference presenters and curriculum reviewers.

Fairview is of the firm belief that public schools can be transformed to be 21st century learning centres, rich in content and backed by a string of skills, attitudes and values to ensure a wholesome educational journey.

The fear that the learning may be watered down or that the deep-rooted eastern traditions may be compromised is unfounded as respecting mother tongue language is one of the tenets of the programme.
