What are the schools in Malacca like?

"Don't put your children in this school! The principals will be very nice and sweet to you when you want to enroll your child in the school. But they do not want to hear from you once your child is enrolled! Any feedback or complaints (particularly complaints!) will not be addressed or tolerated in any way whatsoever. This school is only interested in taking your money, they have no real interest in the welfare or education of your children. Beware," remarked another expat living in Malacca with children attending Malacca Expatriate School (MES).

"Don't bother! This school is a masterpiece of disorganization and I worried for the safety of my child every day she attended this school. The school offers a 'lunch menu' for the children but the food offered is terrible and hygiene is non-existent. The principals have no concept of modern child care and posess attitudes which are better suited to the 1950's era. It would seem that this school wishes only to separate parents from their money. Avoid," said another expat in Malacca with children at Malacca Expatriate School (MES).

"For the Malaysians, it is pricey for what they can offer. Academics wise, one may be disappointed as it operates very much like a village school. Not much homework because expatriates do not like them. If you want extra, do at home yourself or go for tuition. For ambitious expatriates wanting solid ECAs, you can give this school a miss. You will be sorely disappointed. Don't come to Malacca at all if you have high expectations. However, if you want to just get by and your child is in primary, perhaps you can made do here. But not for long," remarked another parent with kids at Malacca Expatriate School in Malacca.

"The school could be good if you are the type of parents who don't require too much in terms of academic. Although the management from principal to administrative are less manner and unprofessional, but can't neglect the efforts of some teachers to the students that had won good reputation and brighten the school up. p/s : the principle or the administrative may look warm when you show interest there, but as time goes, truth shown. Be more caution to the deposit or fees pay and especially when you withdrawing your child/children," explained one expat living in Malacca, Malaysia.
