- Nurturing an Islamic worldview;
- Promoting good behavior through positive reinforcement; and
- Being firm but kind.
KMSS has slowly been improving over the years in its delivery of a wholesome education covering academic achievement as well as spiritual development. KMSS strives to nurture a love for learning in the minds of our students and adopts the IGCSE syllabus because of its design that helps to develop that love for learning. Our school also has a tahfiz program that incorporates a tafhim (understanding) component so our students do not memorize the Quran blindly but also understand what they recite and memorize, which will enable them to act upon the teachings in the Quran.
We invite you to join us and be a part of this uphill yet beautiful journey of delivering wholesome education to our children so they may fulfill their responsibilities as Khalifah of Allah upon the earth and continue the legacy of the prophets and the pious predecessors of enjoining good and forbidding evil, insya Allah.
