Microsoft has recognised our institution as a Showcase School, an elite group of schools that exemplify the best of teaching and learning in the world today. According to Microsoft, Sekolah Sri UCSI Springhill Campus was chosen as it has demonstrated excellence in using innovative strategies to develop curriculum and assessment tools that are student-centered, immersive and inclusive focussing on future-ready skills such as critical thinking, collaboration and creativity.
Only a few institutions earn this designation, we take pride in knowing that Microsoft recognises our impact on the future of education. To date, this elite status is given to only around 500 schools across over 90 countries worldwide. We have also become the first private national school in Malaysia, the first school in the state of Negeri Sembilan and first school under UCSI Schools Group to be awarded this status following our digital learning transformation.
Sekolah Sri UCSI Springhill Campus is now a part of an exclusive community from around the world, recognised and celebrated for their educational transformation which includes vision and innovation in teaching, learning and assessment, computational and critical thinking, creativity and collaboration and a willingness to promote a growth mindset among educators and students.
Since September 2020, we have demonstrated a commitment to school-wide transformation and have leveraged Microsoft Education Transformation Framework to drive a culture of learning, innovation and continuous improvement. Transformation is not only about adaptation, but it also involves a shift in mindset, among teachers, students as well as parents. We have proven that it is possible, even in these challenging times, to find success and support continuous education through innovation use of technology in classroom. We believe that technology plays an important role in shaping our learners and empower them with skills needed for the future. Technology is embedded at the core of our teaching and we have witnessed the extensive benefits it brings in helping children develop a love of learning. Our school has been more accessible to different types of learners and makes the learning process more individualised.
“These educators and leaders are distinguished by their commitment to school-wide transformation to drive a culture of learning, innovation, and continuous improvement. Their hard work is reflected in improved learning outcomes for their students and an increased focus on future-ready skills. Additionally, their dedication to education transformation has helped them and their schools effectively manage the transition to remote and hybrid learning during the current COVID-19 crisis, and they are now reimagining what the in-school experience will look and feel like” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President, Worldwide Education, Microsoft.
As a Microsoft Showcase School, we are also tasked to help other teachers and schools in Malaysia to better manage the transition to remote and hybrid learning and to share our expertise in leveraging technology in education. We look forward to sharing our experiences with other schools in our community and the world to continue finding innovative ways to equip our students with the proper tools needed for success inside and outside of the classroom.
As well as being recognised on a global scale for our innovative approach to educating tomorrow’s workforce, we receive additional collaboration opportunities with other schools around the world, access to professional development opportunities, invitations to exclusive regional and global events, access to partner product trials and Microsoft early adoption opportunities and pilots, support to host tours and events from local and international visitors and Microsoft executive and field teams and more.

Being selected as a Microsoft Showcase School is an amazing honour and recognition of the passion our teachers and staff have for creating the best learning environments possible. We wish to congratulate the academic team for this remarkable achievement and thank all our parents for their ever-ready support.
