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 was built between the 1920’s and 1950’s as a British military retreat center with most of the buildings remaining to this day. School gymnasium and student centers were added in the 1990’s.
