Dalat International School offers an American-style, college-preparatory curriculum. In our continuous efforts to create high achievement for all students, Dalat International School bases its curriculum on standards set by McRel, a world-wide recognized, private, nonprofit organization located in Aurora, Colorado, USA.
Dalat is located on the beautiful island of Penang, Malaysia. Our oceanfront campus looks out on the legendary Straits of Malacca. Just as this historic sea passage has welcomed travelers from all points of the globe, so Dalat is home to a diverse group of gifted individuals who have traveled here from many nations.
Penang is one of 13 states in the federation of Malaysia. The state of Penang is made up of the island of Penang and a narrow strip of land on the main coast. It is about 5 degrees north of the equator along the North-Western coast of Peninsula Malaysia.
The island of Penang is about 24 km (15 miles) long by 12 km (7.5 miles) wide. The north side of the island is home to some beautiful beaches, 4 and 5 star resorts, and Dalat International School. The island is connected to the mainland by the longest bridge in Southeast Asia (13.5 km).
