Since 1987 the School has been guided by the following Vision and Mission:


To operate a group of international schools which rank among world leaders in the academic and social development of their students.


To achieve this Vision through student and staff passion for Excellence, Loyalty, and Commitment.

  • Excellence in everything we do.
  • Loyalty to each other and the School.
  • Commitment to continuous improvement.

Achieving the goals of elc demands the coordinated efforts of a large number of competent staff, each making individual contributions. These, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, when put together complete the total picture for outstanding delivery. To carry the analogy of jigsaw puzzles one step further, in completing the picture for outstanding delivery, the more relevant question is not which piece of the puzzle is more important, but which piece of the puzzle is missing. If even one member of elc’s staff does not pull their weight, the delivery of the school suffers.

Employees the world over seek career progression, the only difference being that some pursue this goal more aggressively and others more passively. elc is fully committed to satisfying this need, but in doing so is equally committed to linking career progression with evidence of superior output. While the vigour of the chase clearly does matter, it is the merit and evidence that are critical.


Over the years we have admired the successes of different schools throughout Malaysia. We particularly appreciate the efforts of the “home” organisations, which have successfully blended our Eastern heritage and culture with the curriculums of the West. Taking the best practices from overseas and moulding them into an education that is a unique blend of the best of both worlds is something that we, in elc, believe is to be celebrated. Of course how that is achieved differs from school to school, and certainly elc has an unusual approach in today’s common educational approach. To give you a sense of how elc may differ from many schools, we would like to highlight 3 philosophies we try to follow:

  • The Pen is Mightier than the Keyboard – students need to focus on penmanship, spelling, grammar and writing out good notes (laptops & mobile phones are only allowed into school for special projects or events, and only with the express permission of the Principal).
  • Good Manners Matter – teachers are expected to reinforce good manners at all times and maintain formality with the students (particularly as students grow older).
  • Respect the Uniform – teachers are expected to ensure students are smartly dressed at all times.

elc does not suggest that this is the only approach, simply that in our community this works and is what we believe will best benefit our students for the challenges of tomorrow.

So having read all this do you think you have what it takes to be part of the elc family? If so please check our latest vacancies for SB Campus and CJ Campus.
