Campus Facilities

“One of the Most Beautiful Locations in the World”

One of the most beautiful locations in the world” is usually how people describe the campus of Dalat International School. Situated on beach front property on the tropical island of Penang, Malaysia, the campus offers breathtaking views of the sea and Malaysia’s outlying islands along the western coast.

Since 1971 the Dalat school campus has been located on this 7.5 acre paradise that includes classrooms, administration, athletic and boarding facilities for the Dalat community. The campus enjoys the charm of many buildings constructed in the 1950’s as a British army retreat center and also dynamic educational and dorm facilities that have recently been constructed to provide an education for life for our students.
