It will be a great help (as we will be new to KL and have absolutely no clue about schools) if few IGCSE schools (fees below 50, 000 MR per child) can be recommended for my children who are at secondary level. Top priorities are the high quality of education with good teachers/principal, good results, and discipline.

Thanking in advance!

Hi Vinita,

When are you moving to Kuala Lumpur? There tend to be long waiting lists for the international schools, so it might be best to apply to them as soon as you can. 

I'm not sure about the tuition fees, but check out this Expat Arrivals page on international schools in Kuala Lumpur. All schools on the list have good reputations.

HI Kyle, Thanks for your reply. Yes in a process of applying to schools right now. I did check the page on expat arrivals on schools, unfortunately, they are all above my budget. and so I wanted some names of good schools which fit in my budgets.

Hi Vinita,

It can often be a struggle to find affordable international schools. It's also worth bearing in mind that secondary school fees are higher than primary school fees. In addition, British curriculum schools tend to be some of the most expensive as this curriculum is highly respected and in high demand.

However, some schools offer discounts if more than one child is sent to the school, which may be useful in your case. It's also a good idea to explore the possibility of scholarships as some schools offer them. 

I did a bit of research and would recommend you look into Sayfol International School and Sri Kuala Lumpur International School, as these appear to be relatively low-cost international schools offering the IGSCEs and A-Levels.

Hope that helps.

Hi Vinita, did you find a suitable school for your children? I imagine you are already in KL now - and if so, welcome!
