We believe that a child’s natural curiosity is the foundation for critical thinking, and at REAL Private and International School Johor Bahru, we strive to develop their creative and critical thinking skills through active learning, fostering students' ability to work in teams, think critically, and think confidently.
We also aspire to go beyond the traditional classroom by instilling innovative learning and creating an environment in which our students can freely learn and explore their creative aspects.
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.
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.

REAL Schools has been a great place for me to learn, be matured and make new friends over the past 6 years. In this very school, I changed my grades from the worst to the best and gained a ton of exposures from the opportunities my teachers had given to me.

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!

“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.

My two sons, since coming to this school in September 2019, not only are they more serious about learning and interest development, they are more serious than before, and they will not feel the pressure of learning. Compared with when they were studying in Hong Kong, more relaxed and happy. The school teachers are also very caring for the students, and they are very clear about the students' abilities. They also arrange for other students to help the children during the adaptation period, which makes me feel respected! The school’s environment and facilities also feel very comfortable for students. Overall, I am very satisfied with R.E.A.L International School.

I’ve been a REAL student since primary 2 and recently just graduated. When i first came to Malaysia, i never imagined I would be where I am now. REAL has been a big part of my life and gave me amazing experiences. REAL helped me not only to excel in my studies, but also focus on other important skills such as teamwork and social skills. I also learned karate for CCA, and was able to get a third place in the sparring competition that was held at KL.
Thanks to REAL, I got straight A's for my IGCSE. Now I am studying for A-level and I’m hoping to get into the medical field in the future.
I will always remember REAL as my second home.

“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.
