We live in a VUCA World (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) that is being shaped by the 4th and 5th industrial revolutions. At R.E.A.L Schools, we believe that REAL education prepares students for the REAL world.
Innovative learning is one of the main focuses at REAL Private and International School Johor. Students are encouraged to explore life beyond the classroom to equip themselves for the REAL world as they will have first-hand experiences in embracing indoor and outdoor environments in learning rather than learning through lectures or textbooks in classrooms.
I’m glad my parents enrolled me in REAL Schools; I got to meet amazing friends and great people. I doubt I’ll have trouble getting into a university or finding a job. I’m confident I've made the right choice and that REAL Schools has taught me the necessary skills to prepare me for the future.
Ruth Tang Ru, REAL International School alumni
Both my children have loved their REAL school experience. Teachers there especially Ms. Kasthoory and Ms. Selena were supportive & fully accessible. The academics were excellent but even better was the character development program. In 21st century, academics is not the only key to success, instead being able to embrace humanity is an essential skill and I'm confident that REAL graduates are equipped with it.

“Students gain valuable experiences that cannot be learnt from textbooks”
Every student is able to receive more individual attention and support because of the small class sizes. Teachers come up with interesting teaching methods for students to understand a particular topic well. Meanwhile, the school’s student ambassador teams provide opportunities for students to increase their confidence in preparation for the workforce. Hence, students at R.E.A.L Schools do not only improve their academic performance, but also gain valuable experiences that cannot be learnt from textbooks.
