Vision & Mission:

  • To prepare the young to face the challenges of globalization and knowledge era by providing them with holistic education to meet the needs of their body, mind and soul.
  • To care for them as if our own and give their parents peace of mind.

Unique Features of the School

  • The school is a 21-acre purpose-built campus situated on the family estate of Datuk Hassan Harun, which was founded in 1976. What was originally a small rubber holding and orchard has since been transformed into a garden of fruit trees, exotic plants, flora and fauna which plays host to a variety of local and annual migratory birds. A rarity these days, the campus is truly evergreen, fresh, very clean, and free from any pollution.
  • The school is managed by Datuk Hassan and his family members. Almost all members of his immediate family live on the campus and its vicinity.
  • His own children and grandchildren study in the school. Owing to this, the care of the students especially those staying at the hostels is very intimate and family-like.
  • Apart from Datuk Hassan and his family, about a third of the school’s staff and teachers stay within the campus and its vicinity, making it convenient for them to be on the campus all the time.
  • The campus community which is colorful, cheerful and vibrant is composed of 17 nationalities with English as its lingua franca.
  • Our safe and secure twin-sharing on-campus accommodation facilities, separate for boys and girls, help to mould characters that are caring, self-reliant, interdependent, and team-spirited.
