As a not-for-profit organisation, we have continuously invested in our facilities and resources over the past 30 years, to encourage our students to explore and develop their unique interests and talents whilst inspiring a love of learning. 

Located within an 80-acre campus, our school combines traditional Malaysian architecture with state-of-the-art facilities while emphasising sustainability. The school facilities underscore KTJ’s holistic approach to academic learning while supporting the intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual development of our students.
