Making the right choice
BASED on a latest study by the International School Consultancy, there are more than 1,000 international schools in South-East Asia and 140 of those schools are in Malaysia. The number is expected to grow over the next few years.
The demand for an international school education has been increasing since the Malaysian Government lifted the quota for local student enrolment in international schools.
There is a wide range of international schools in Malaysia and these schools differ in terms of the curriculum offered, teaching staff and student composition as well as boarding facilities.
Therefore, parents who are considering an international school education for their children should research the available options.
Since 2012, Mint Communications has been helping parents find the right international school for their children through organising a series of fairs in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor.
The Private & International School Fair also made its debut in Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Singapore this year. The fairs have proven to be successful through the increasing interest from parents and exhibitors each year.
“We are delighted to organise the Private & International School Fair in Kuala Lumpur. The fair is an excellent event for parents to connect with leading international schools from all over the country,” says Mint 10th Private & International School Fair Date Time Venue
