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 parent with kids at Malacca Expatriate School (MES) in Malacca.

"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," explained one expat living in Malacca, Malaysia.
