International Schools in Johor with Annual Tuition Fees below RM40,000

Published by SchoolAdvisor | May 03, 2021

Johor, a state of Malaysia situated at the south of the Peninsula Malaysia is known for its beautiful sandy beaches and tranquil rainforests. More recently, Johor has become a hotbed for urban development, with a strong focus on Iskandar Malaysia which was named the highest-impact project when it was first developed 10 years ago.

Therefore, it is only natural that the state became one of the most popular destinations among local and international tourists in Malaysia.

The fast-paced development also enabled more expats and residents from its neighbouring country, Singapore to choose Johor as a viable place to live. This in turn has caused a boom in the education sector which has been encouraged by the government to further draw more locals and expats alike.

There are a growing number of international schools in Johor to accommodate expats who are coming to the city with their family.

SchoolAdvisor has come up with a list of international schools in Johor with affordable fees. Do check the following list! Perhaps one of them might strike your fancy. It is worth taking note that the fee range of these schools is calculated based on annual tuition fees.
