Matrix Global Schools is located on a lush, green 20 acre site with excellent facilities.

Our Boarding House is run along Boarding Schools Association standards (BSA).

We offer a rich, quality education with affordable fees. The school caters for Malaysian children and children from overseas. We have recently signed an agreement with a number of agencies and partner schools, universities in China and Korean and are looking to expand into India and other SE Asian countries.  The student population overall, is approximately 800 at present with 350 in our international secondary school.

We have very high aspirations and are ably supported by a strong school board and parent community.
