Dear oh dear, here are some fees from schools which have decent websites. All fees are for tuition only and excludes the usual deposits, misc fees, etc.


Garden International School

Primary 1 – RM23,100 per year

Secondary 5 – RM35,550 per year

Private (following national syllabus)

Sri KL

Primary 1 – RM7,680.00 per year
Secondary 5 – RM12,650.00 per year (Science Stream with IT)
I cannot find the fees for government and Chinese schools. Can anyone help?

    I suppose gov school, be it national or chinese medium, you need not pay school/tuition fees. Only some misc fees at the beginning of the term. At least that’s what I remember.

    Wow.. the fees that these international school are asking are really high! But I know they pay the teachers well, as I have friends who work there.

    That fee is someone’s anual income.. gosh.. how can normal wage earner afford it. But I guess that’s the point, you only want a certain type of people to be able to afford it, either rich, or the expat.

    Whoa! That’s like paying an instalment for a house or sthing. Geeeezzz.. oh well, international school has always been my last option anyway. Ha-ha!

    Yah, gomen school no need to pay tuition fees. Only need to pay for registration or PIBG (PTA) and of course the text books. Not too sure about the amount too.

    Are you going to send your boy to private school? I think the total amount per year for goverment school will be less than 5k, including the material and tuition.

    I ever done school searching for my ex-boss, he prefer Int school but after knowing the yearly fee, he change his mind at last. I teased him: hey boss, u earn so much monthly yet “ng sei tak” send your kids there? Me lagi not afford lar…hehe…he laugh! End up sending his kids to chinese school (gov based)

    You search for “government school” or “chinese chinese school:, then u can see lot of web there. Just have to take some time to do the searching.

    Sorry, I had forgot the link I refer last time.
