Head of School
Robert B. Gaw: 1970-1978
Gail Schoppert: 1978-1983

Five years after ISKL’s establishment, the school was growing and thriving. The 1970s demonstrated a commitment to development in all areas; academics, athletics and student organizations. During this decade there were many milestones, beginning with the establishment of ISKL’s chapter of the National Honor Society on November 2, 1970 at a formal banquet in the Merlin Hotel. Accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) was granted and the Student-Parent-Teacher Association (SPTA) was formed. Enrollment continued to increase so by 1979 it topped the 600 students mark. Hence, perhaps the most significant milestone came In 1973 when, after several years of searching, the land in Ampang Jaya was acquired. The Malaysian Government agreed to lease to the society the 5.6 acres for a period of 99 years. In January 1976 the Ampang Campus opened.
