If you have a passion to help young people achieve their fullest potential, Straits International School could be the right place for you to grow.

Island Life

Straits International School is located on the soulful island of Penang. A fascinating fusion of the East and West, Penang embraces modernity while retaining its traditions and old-world charm. This is reflected in its harmonious multiracial populace and well-preserved heritage buildings, which led to George Town being accorded a listing as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site recently.


Our pupils are delightful, motivated, enthusiastic and eager to learn. They deserve only the very best that we, as teachers, can offer. We seek to appoint staff who are committed to working as part of a team, sharing expertise and subscribing to the vision and ethos of the school, based upon educating holistically, individually, collaboratively and globally.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people under our care, and expect all applicants to share this commitment. We follow safe practices which are aligned to the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection. We hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting with specific attention to child protection.
