German School Kuala Lumpur / Deutsche Schule Kuala Lumpur

The Deutsche Schule Kuala Lumpur (German School Kuala Lumpur) is a German-language school abroad supported by the Bundesverwaltungsamt (BVA). The school provides a comprehensive education for the German and German-speaking students, enabling them  to continue their education abroad consistent with German standards. The DSKL offers quality German education in a unique Malaysian setting; students are guaranteed an enriching education experience benefitting from being located in a country with a rich historical, cultural and environmental background. Students in year 10 take final examinations (GSE) to get a Haupt- oder Realschulabschluss (junior high school or high school) or the admission to continue studying, leading to the German International Abitur (DIAP).

Although children of all nationalities are welcome to the DSKL, a prerequisite is that they possess a good command of the German language. Admission into year 1 strictly follows German education standards. However, students coming from other German schools can expect to continue at the same level at DSKL. Students having attended Non-German schools may be required to pass a German aptitude test before admission is considered.

The lessons are held in German. Basic English is taught in year 1 – 4 (which is the lingua franca in Malaysia).  English grammar and vocabulary lessons begin in year 5. The second foreign language is French and is taught from year 6. Students coming from schools where they have been taught a different foreign language will be granted more time to get used to the new system. Since 2003/04 German is being offered as a foreign language to those students of mixed parentage. These lessons are for students from year 1 – 4.
