Head of School
William Powell: 2000-2006
Paul Chmelik: 2006-2013

The start of the new millennium saw a reestablishment of the expectations for the community to resolve issues of the previous few years, moving the school forward. Decisions and actions were consistently focused on school improvement and realizing our school’s mission statement.

An array of highly qualified consultants were invited to ISKL who influenced school board governance, educational programs, teaching, assessment, and personal relationships. Professional development blossomed. Once again the school was moving forward and a great place to be for students, faculty and staff. Recognizing the growth pattern that was happening with enrollment, discussions of long-term plans for future locations for ISKL began, including relocate to a new campus that could accommodate all three divisions.

In 2004-2005, ISKL celebrated its 40th Anniversary. Campus improvements continued, including an artificial field, a new "Pac Shack" area, the swimming pool was re-tiled, the Melawati Library was expanded, a new High School science lab was built, and the Melawati Studio was enhanced by better sound, lighting, and screen equipment.

During this decade, ISKL established the IB Scholarship Program and established its first formal Alumni Office. It also saw the start of a new High School annual tradition, the Global Action Program, with High School students having the opportunity to travel to countries around the region to undertake service work.
