Cempaka International School Damansara Heights is an international school in KL offering IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP). It all started when Dato’ Freida Pilus started Cempaka School in a rented bungalow to provide the best possible education for her sons. It has since expanded to form the Cempaka Group of Schools – a group of private and international schools in Kuala Lumpur & Selangor, comprising of two schools, spread over two campuses – one in Damansara Heights, and one in Cheras.
Although Cempaka has expanded and modernised and continues to be at the cutting edge of modern education, it has remained true to its original ideas, a school by a family for a family. Her sons for whom Dato Freida Pilus founded the school are still with her, joining her to take Cempaka well into the 21st century.
