elc International School started life as elc Secondary School in 1987 with 5 students and 6 teachers including the Principal. The School was formed in order to provide a legitimate vehicle to privately educate this small group of children, 3 of whom were the children of the founders namely Dr. & Mrs. Kaloo and Dr & Mrs. Ghazalli.
The School was registered as a Secondary School, under the terms of the Education Act 1961, to prepare qualified children for the GCE ‘O’ Levels in May 1989. In June 1992, the school was given permission to add a Primary Division to the established Secondary Division. elc maintained two sites within the Taman Tun Dr. Ismail area, one for the Primary Division and another for the Secondary Division.
By 1995 a decision was made to bring both Primary and Secondary together onto one site and in January 1997 elc relocated to its new campus in Sungai Buloh, Selangor. The official opening of the new school building and its grounds were graced by the then Minister of Education YB Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib bin Tun Hj. Abdul Razak on March 07, 1998.
Over the years the School has unwaveringly pursued a single objective which is to make a significant contribution towards the development of its students into responsible and successful men and women of the future. To a large extent, history shows that the school has succeeded.
