History

As an outcome of Razak Report,[3] Sekolah Alam Shah (SAS) was formed on 7 February 1963 at Kampung Congo (now Bandar Tun Razak), Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. However, just several months after its 40th anniversary celebration, SAS was relocated to a new modern school complex in Putrajaya. The Education Ministry then did not take long to make use of the still largely operational old premises. On 16 June 2003 a new school came into being on the site whilst still carrying the name of the fifth Selangor Ruler, the Alam Shah Science School.[4]

ASiS campus is located in the outskirts of metropolitan Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. The atmosphere is natural with old trees left untouched, including fruit trees like rambutans and durians. This contributes to the leafy areas around the school, besides giving students the chance to handpick fresh fruits during the seasons. The school site covers 34 acres, comprising three administration and classroom buildings, four hostel blocks, one dining hall, one teachers' apartment, one staff apartment, six teachers' quarters and a principal's bungalow.

Facilities include tennis, futsal and basketball courts, and a football/rugby field shared with Institut Perguruan Ilmu Khas. ASiS is surrounded by education institutions, which are the Sekolah Menengah Teknik Kuala Lumpur, Sekolah Menengah Sains Selangor, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Cheras, Institut Perguruan Ilmu Khas, Institut Perguruan Teknik and is near to the Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM).[5] Also in the vicinity of the school is the KL Football Stadium that is the venue of ASiS' Annual Athletics Day.

Student selection is based on the achievement in the Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) nationwide, with co-curricular factors also put into consideration. The selection process is made by the Ministry of Education, as per all Malaysian public boarding schools (SBP). The first batch of students, calling themselves PIONEERs by that virtue, sat for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia SPM in 2004 with the number of candidates 84.

Each enrolment may cater for over 200 boys and is divided into three intakes.

The first principal was Tn. Hj. Mohd Idrus bin Abdul Hamid, who officially took up the position on the same day ASiS was inaugurated. He was assisted by the Vice Principals; Razmi Abdul Razak (Academics), Ahmad Shafrin Abdul Aziz (Student Affairs), and Rijaluddin Che Mat (Co-curriculum). The administration board remained unchanged until 2011, when Principal Mohd Idrus finally retired after eight years galvanising the school.

Thirteen teachers entered ASiS on the first day. Some of them, including then Principal Mohd Idrus, had been on the grounds long before the existence of ASiS as the workforce of Sekolah Alam Shah. On 12 September 2003 12 more teachers entered ASiS.

The school has expanded much since its inception. In 2009, the total number of ASiS teachers was 51, with 22 staff. The number of students reached around 500 per school year.
