Established in 1985, R.E.A.L Schools has expanded to six schools offering both International and National curriculums spread across three campuses in Cheras, Shah Alam and Johor Bahru (JB).
R.E.A.L Schools was first founded as Sekolah Sang Suria in a small bungalow in Cheras with a humble beginning of just 40 students. The school quickly outgrew its first home and was soon moved to its present 10-acre land within a peaceful environment in Cheras, taking on the name Sekolah Seri Suria. Today, the school is known as R.E.A.L Schools, Suria Campus, Cheras, KL
By 1999, R.E.A.L Schools had progressed so much that a second campus – the Cahaya Campus - was established in Shah Alam, Selangor. Another Cahaya Campus then followed suit, opening its doors in Johor Bahru (JB) in 2008 and becoming the third and newest member of the R.E.A.L Schools family. As we approach our third decade in educating students, we welcome you to join our journey and discover what it means to be ‘R.E.A.L’.
