Dashxmi Yohan, REAL Schools, Johor Bahru Campus

My son started to study in REAL when he was Primary 2. He liked the school very much because there were many CCA that he can join and he liked the most the swimming class. As a mother, I am happy to see him enjoy the school life. I liked this school very much because I can see the efforts put in by teachers and the school especially during the MCO. They are well prepared.

Kao Sing Tee, Parent

During MCO, we are grateful my child continues to learn through online classes. Teachers have been putting in a lot of effort and patience to teach and making sure that she understands the lesson. She is looking forward to school reopens and gets to enjoy all her favourite classes/ activities again like Real Time, swimming and Art and Craft.

“I learnt to be a good leader, which will be important in my working life”

With each passing day, week, month, and year spent in R.E.A.L, I grew in knowledge, gaining valuable experiences which would be of great use in the future. R.E.A.L Schools’ facilities provided me the opportunity to engage in activities such as swimming, badminton, futsal, and more; with external coaches to train us in extracurricular activities like karate and taekwondo.

Wong Jun Kang, REAL Schools, Johor Bahru Campus

After spending 5 years in REAL School, I have acquired many skills beneficial to my future, REAL has nurtured and prepared me for my future, helping me build a strong foundation in life. Furthermore, REAL's practice of five Cs, has made me better person overall. The active learning has also allowed me to engage in many activities, most of which helps students acquire skills such as leadership, communication and critical thinking. The teachers REAL has assigned for us, were wonderful. They were caring and would provide us with assistance even during their break time. They would observe every student in the class, assist and provide encouragement for those falling behind. I am thankful to REAL for providing me with the opportunity to study here and all the teachers who had helped me achieved what I have today.

Chan Wen Joe, REAL Schools, Johor Bahru Campus

We are very happy and satisfied with the school's prompt reaction and measures taken to allow the children to continue school lessons without much interruption throughout this MCO period. All teachers and staff put in great effort to ensure the lessons are carried out smoothly, and quick reminders were sent if the kid is “absent” in class!
