Parent's Review of Mutiara International Grammar School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

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

Mutiara International Grammar 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.)

Malaysian, following British curriculum

What grade levels are represented at this school?

age 3 to 16

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

Most go by bus or driven in

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

Very limited. Small playing field shared with next door school. Basic labs. Little play area for big children. Junior and senior school on same site so very cramped. Classrooms very functional.

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?

It's been ok but little help in transition. Mainly local children come, so pupils just have to get on with it

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

No PTO whatsoever.

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

Look very carefully and look up other reviews on the internet which go into much greater detail than I can. 'Allo Expat is an excellent one for getting a feel for the school. It is a "little secret" because most pupils don't want to be there if they could afford going to a better school!!!
