elc International School started 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. During this time, elc operated out of two campuses within the Taman Tun Dr. Ismail area, one for the Primary Division and another for the Secondary Division.
Around 1995 a decision was made to consolidate the Primary and Secondary division and operate out of a single campus. In January 1997 elc relocated to its new campus at 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.
The success of Sungai Buloh campus motivated the school authorities to expand to a second campus and offer the benefit of our education to more children. Thus, elc International School, Cyberjaya Campus opened its doors for the first time on September 6th 2010.
Following in the footsteps of its sister campus, Cyberjaya started small and grew to rival the other bigger international schools in the region. Although Cyberjaya does not intend to trade on the Sungai Buloh campus name, it will certainly follow the tradition of honest, hard work.
One of the Director’s summarized elc Cyberjaya as “the same values, the same commitment, new face.” Essentially the core of Cyberjaya is made up of everything elc has built over the last 30 years but wrapped in a new parcel.
