Parent's Review of The Alice Smith School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

The Alice Smith School

In what town or city is this school located?

Kuala Lumpur

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

pre school to Sixth Form (3-18)

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Secondary - mostly by bus. Some by car. Primary - most by car, some by bus

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Secondary school facilities are fantastic. Full 50m pool, lovely split level library, air-conditioned sports hall. Specialist science laboratories and a brilliant DT centre

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

There was a great transition for my hildren who were following the English National Curriculum in an international school in the Middle East. The school was very thorough when looking through my children's entrance tests and advising how they could best support them, option choices etc. The school has a broad range of GCSE and A levels that are common to most other schools and therefore the transition has been very smooth.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Very nice Newcomers Coffee Mornings and good input from the PTA and other societies. The school made me feel very welcome and have responded promptly to my queries. There was lots to learn about the school but the staff were very good at explaining systems etc.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Definately make The Alice Smith School your priority if you are looking for British Education in KL. The school has an academic focus but is very well balanced with extra curricular activities, trips, sports and some great musical and performance evenings. Don't be put off by the fact it is out of town - no school in KL can compete with the spaciousness of Alice Smith and the bus journeys are no longer than those for the schools in central KL.

10-Things-to-Know-Before-Moving-to-Malaysia10 Things to Know Before Moving to Malaysia

Expats are attracted to Malaysia's lower cost of living, bustling cities, multicultural vibe, climate and proximity to Singapore. Many expat retirees take advantage of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program. For others who don't qualify, visa runs become a inconvenient part of expat life that often dissuade them from staying in Malaysia long-term.
