The Prince of Wales Island International School (Balik Pulau) opened in 2011 and has rapidly established a local, national, and international reputation as one of Malaysia’s most significant schools. Situated in the green, safe, and tranquil environment of Balik Pulau. POWIIS offers a broad and balanced education based on the English National Curriculum for students aged 11-19. In September of 2019, our brand new purpose-built primary school for children aged 3-11 opened in Tanjung Bungah, unquestionably the outstanding primary campus in the region. August 2023 marks an exciting milestone for POWIIS Tanjung Bungah as we transition into a middle school, expanding our age range from 3 to 13. This development ensures that POWIIS now uniquely offers two purpose-built campuses, each providing outstanding teaching and age-appropriate facilities, guaranteeing every child a sure pathway to success.
