Alice Smith School is an international school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia founded in 1946. The school is a not-for-profit educational institution situated on two campuses. The Primary Campus is at Jalan Bellamy in Kuala Lumpur and the Secondary Campus on Jalan Equine in Seri Kembangan, Selangor.[1]


The Alice Smith School started in 1946 as a stop-gap home school in Kuala Lumpur.[2] At that stage, the expatriate schools in the cooler highlands that had been operating in Malaya before the Second World War had not yet re-opened. In 1975, Patricia Lee, former headmistress of the school from 1964 to 1989, described the motivation behind the school's inception:

People's ideas about living in the tropics began to change as the war had shown them that they had more resistance to the heat than they had imagined and they began to feel it was no longer imperative to send children back to temperate climates at a very early age. One person who held this view was Alice Fairfield Smith, whose husband Hugh was the Statistician at the Rubber Research Institute. In 1946, she decided to keep her daughter Lindsay with her and to teach the child herself. When three months later, there were enough children for two classes, Mrs. Smith realised that this was not going to be the temporary project she imagined, and the Eaton Road School was registered with the Department of Education.[3][4][5]

The school operates at two sites: the Primary Campus is in a wooded area adjacent to the old Istana Negara (Royal Palace) on Jalan Bellamy. This is close to the centre of Kuala Lumpur. The facilities at the Primary Campus include interactive whiteboards throughout, a virtual learning platform, three libraries, a hall, a double-storey gym, swimming pool, computer suites (PC & Mac), a performing arts centre, a sports field, sets of adventure play equipment and three play grounds.[9]

The Secondary Campus students, staff and parents were very excited with the opening of the Seri Kembangan Interchange on the KM16.5 of Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Highway (MEX) in December 2015. With the MEX highway link, travelling time between the Primary and Secondary campuses and from KL city to the Secondary Campus at Equine Park has reduced significantly to approximately 20 minutes. This makes the school’s wonderful facilities at the Secondary Campus more readily accessible. The site includes a swimming pool, indoor sports hall, rugby and football pitches, an outdoor basketball court and four tennis courts. The school uses the virtual learning platform, further amplified through the widespread use of interactive whiteboards. The performing arts centre includes two theatre halls, six practice rooms and a recording studio. The expanded art space has been the site of exhibitions, recently expanded to allow exploration of other artistic mediums such as Digital Photography. The school boasts Business, Media & Technology as well as Science centres.[10]
