Welcome to Matrix Private School. We add depth and substance by enhancing the national-level curriculums set and approved by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia. We are one of a select group of schools in Malaysia to be certified a Dual Language Programme (DLP) school, offering Mathematics and Science in both Bahasa Melayu and English. By enhancing the quality of the core curriculum our students are able to dig deep and maximise their full potential.
At Matrix Global Schools, East truly meets West, combining the Malaysian curriculum in an international setting, with students across the campus sharing facilities, break times, CCAs and uniting together for school sports teams.
We focus on the thing that matters most – every child’s welfare. Students flourish when they are treated with care, kindness and respect. We take the time to nurture positive mental health and good physical health, as well as the social wellbeing of each student in our care.
Care is one of our core values and central to our supportive learning environment.

All students are assigned to a House, each of which has a House captain. The schools and year groups a blend of older students acting as buddies for the younger students.
Primary students from ages 7 to 12 undertake the Malaysian National Primary School Standard Curriculum, or Kurikulum Standard Sekolah Rendah (KSSR), with English as the main language of instruction for learning.
The aim of our primary level education is to equip learners with a strong foundation of language, Science, Mathematics and other supporting subjects that are in line with the goals of the National Philosophies of Education which seeks to optimise the intellectual, emotional and spiritual potential of learners.
Our approach combines the best of both Malaysian and global approaches. As a certified Dual Language Programme (DLP) school, we offer Mathematics and Science subjects in both Bahasa Melayu and English languages. There is also an option for students to sit for the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Examination for English Language, Science and Mathematics subjects in their Standard 6.
Students graduating from the Primary year group will have a seamless transition into their Secondary years. Students will continue the Malaysian National Secondary School Standard Curriculum, the Kurikulum Standard Sekolah Menengah (KSSM), which covers Form 1 to 5.
Students will be provided with the focus in academic achievement, creative and fun learning experiences that engage them during lessons and to enable them to take an active role in the learning process.
Geared towards academic achievement, students will be well prepared to sit for crucial public examinations.
Our students will be assessed holistically under the Ministry of Education’s Pelaporan Pentaksiran Sekolah Rendah (PPSR), or Primary School Assessment Report. This report assesses the student, which includes Pentaksiran Bilik Darjah (PBD, or Classroom Assessment); Pentaksiran Aktiviti Jasmani, Sukan dan Kokurikulum (PAJSK, or Physical, Sports and Co-Curriculum Assessment) and Pentaksiran Psikometrik (PPsi or Psychometric Assessment).
English will be strongly emphasised as the main language of instruction for teaching and learning. Cambridge Curriculum is incorporated as part of the KSSR curriculum in English Language, Mathematics and Science subjects. The concept of creative, fun, differentiated & experiential learning is the approach in our lessons. Extracurricular activities (ECA) are conducted for leadership grooming, character building and civic readiness cultivation. Mandarin First and Second Languages will be offered for all Primary level students as well.
Students will undergo various classroom-based Formative Assessments and school-based Summative Assessments. Before progressing to Secondary education, Standard 6 learners will sit for the Primary School Achievement Test (Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah, UPSR). The subjects tested are Bahasa Melayu, English Language, Science and Mathematics.
Students are prepared for a smooth and seamless transition into Secondary School.

Our Physical Education curriculum inspires students to succeed and excel in both casual and competitive sports.
Regular inter-house competitions allow each student to get a taste of competitiveness. We also have school teams who compete in inter-school competitions which are for more experienced performers.
We embrace each student’s unique creativity, curiosity and ambition with a vibrant and progressive curriculum that is rich in art, music and drama.
Students are actively encouraged to showcase their talents and confidence in a variety of forums, including the annual stage performances, which have included Mamma Mia, Oliver and Fame.
Students organise and perform in concerts, orchestra, choirs and weekly assemblies.

Nestled in our magnificent 20-acre campus grounds, our boarding house offers a home-from-home approach for secondary students. Whether you choose it as a day school or take advantage of the full or weekly boarding options, this is a calm and homely setting where your child will flourish.
We’ve set out to reinvent what it means to board in Asia. Step inside our purpose-built boarding house and you’ll discover a very homely experience, with an opportunity to interact with lots of different families.
Life is more than exams, at Matrix Global Schools you’ll find a whole host of transformational co-curricular activities that unlock even more opportunities and stretch students beyond what they are taught in the classroom. Students challenge themselves in little chef kitchens, technology labs and art studios.
Beyond the curriculum, students can gain confidence and experience by joining the Student Council or Prefectorial Board. There’s countless opportunities to contribute to and learn from local and global communities through volunteering.
We’ll push each student further with unparalleled opportunities to develop inspiration and new perspectives.

“With rapid technological advances and a more-connected world (just think about the number of different countries you have interacted with since you woke up this morning), education today faces the ever-growing challenge in providing a learning experience that best suits each learners’ unique and expanding needs – we are currently preparing our students for a world where most of the jobs they will do currently do not exist, using inventions that are yet to be made, to solve issues that we may not even be aware of. This is the challenge that excites me the most – being able to enhance the academic abilities of all learners, enabling them to develop personal qualities that they will need to survive in the 21st Century and assisting them in becoming more internationally minded. Essentially, my hope is to see each child be the best version of who they can be.”

“Young children are not like other students. Their needs are distinctive and therefore early years sets the foundation for all the years that follow. Teachers in early education need to be creative and adaptive. It is important as an early childhood educator, we are able to place ourselves in their shoes. What stimulates a very young child? How do you sustain a toddler’s interest? How do you make learning fun? These are all questions that we always have to ask ourselves. Lessons in early education classrooms have to be hands-on. We need to be fast on our feet and highly adaptable to continuously come up with new ways to guide children through their early learning stages. Therefore, it is important for me and my team of teachers to provide a caring and supportive environment that promotes optimal early childhood development.”
