Parent's Review of Ipoh in Ipoh, Malaysia

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

Ipoh

In what town or city is this school located?

Ipoh

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

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Nursery to 6th Form

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

I take them.

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

Brand new building with quite good extra curricular activities.

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?

Initially nothing until I complained then they were good at making sure they were ok.

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

There is a pta but full of clicky friends who also seem to be very friendly with teachers.

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

Don't!!! Lots of unqualified teachers in the high school, most students have tutors which seems to be the norm and totally unacceptable if you are paying for your child's education already!!! Absolutely no concept of safeguarding and no sense of safety in the school, they do have guards but anybody could get over the perimeter fence at any time. Lots of rude disrespectful students at the school but doesn't seem to matter as long as there is money coming in!!! Very disappointing.

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.
