Today’s young people face extraordinary challenges. We help them navigate their place in the world, explore their passions and find their purpose.

Straits International School Penang is 100% committed to helping our students reach their goals, get into their chosen university, and succeed in their careers. With our bespoke careers and guidance programme, ISP Future Pathways™️, this process starts from as young as five years old.

ISP Future Pathways™️ is a roadmap to your child’s next destination, beyond IGCSEs.

  • Personalised support from in-house counsellors & Unifrog
