There are mostly local students in this school. Only several foreigners. If you prefer a school with high expat community, this may not be right for you. But my girl is able to learn the local cultures which is what I wanted. Teachers are made up of local and several expat teachers. So far, i have no complain about the teachers. They have helped my daughter a lot especially in English. The only dissatisfaction i have is the canteen food, which is a little expensive and dull. School fees more expensive compare with Fairview, Sayfol, Real International, Sri Garden International. I also heard that their secondary school takes only 4 years to complete, in which they combined the first 3 years into a 2 year programme.

After scrutinising the websites, we are very likely to consider private schooling and at this initial stage, looks like Cempaka Damansara Heights is the preferred choice but I need to know the tuition fees. So, I emailed the registrar for more info on tuition fees and this was what I got..... To apply for acceptance, a RM1000 non refundable fee for entrance exam/interview is charged. Parents will also need to fork out RM5000 for registration fee and RM5000 as advance fee. Total amount RM11,000 to be paid before the application is even considered. Once accepted, the other fees payable are : 1) RM1000 installation fee i.e. welcome pack, smartcard, orientation pack etc 2) RM5000 refundable deposit (refundable upon sufficient notice of withdrawal from school) Then, there are the tuition fees payable every semester (2 semesters yearly). For Std 1 3 RM6300 per semester (does not include books/uniform/stationery/external exam fees. includes food) There's also the annual fees payable every beginning of school year which amounts to RM1000. So all that will work out to about RM28K for the first year! The following year, i estimate it to be about RM15K. Prices will increase from time to time of course and we have to also consider paying for a 2nd child in the same school in a few years time..... factor that all in and it looks like a huge sum of money! Now can anyone tell me where can I find a money tree that dispenses RM1000 notes?
