I have another thread on Nilai International school. But, I thought of creating this new thread to share my findings after some due diligence done of shortlisted schools that within reasonable travelling time and also within my budget. Hope this info could benefit to some that are in my shoe.
My location : Taman Desa, Old Klang Road
My budget : Per annum - RM30,000 (max), preferably 20K.
International School curriculum - British curriculum
My son situation:
Recently we bring him to Child Phychiatrist. Dr believe that he has mild degree of ADHD, but concluded that he does not need to go to special school and could learn as normal kid with some medical help. He is not performing well in Government Chinese school. I believe that's partly due to chinese being 3rd language for him. and Secondly due to his ADHD syndrome of not being able to focus very well. This has improved as we started on medical help on him.
Our expectation of new school for him:
1. English as primary medium. As english is 2nd language for him (he speaks to father in english). His native language is Thai (mother being thai).
2. Less academic result oriented. More interactive and fun-filled type of learning/teaching, and move away from the typical spoon fed and academic result driven type of learning.
3. Able to appreciate my son's situation and willing to help
After school visit, I have shortlisted 3 schools. Asia Pacific, Taylor KL, and Taylor Puchong.
Note that I only consider schools that within 40 min traveling from my house, and less than 30K per year. So, I didn't explore all schools.
Here's table of my findings that drive me to the short listed schools.
Hope this can be helpful to others.
