History[edit]

Sri Kuala Lumpur Primary School was established in January 1979 in Jalan Nipah, Kuala Lumpur with an initial enrolment of six students. In August 1979, the school moved to Jalan Anak Gasing. Enrolment had increased to 100 by January 1980 and over 300, 12 months later when it moved to Jalan Ampang. Further moves occurred in December 1984, to Taman Mayang, Petaling Jaya and, finally, in January 1986 to SS15, Subang Jaya. The secondary school was opened in 1987. In 2005, the Education Minister, Dato Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein declared the new facilities block to be opened. On 4 January 2010, Year 1 & 2 started the Cambridge System for secondary education. Beginning 2010, secondary students from Form 1 could have the choice of studying the government (KBSM) or Cambridge syllabus.
