Sorry for going off topic here. However, I feel that I needed to share this review to most young parents out there that are looking for schools for their children that will be starting their official education in the “big school” as my son Noah calls it :).
My son, Noah Luqman, is a very high spirited boy with lots of energy to run around and is very very curious about everything. Hence, finding a suitable school for him that will not only encourage him to learn and not kill/dampen his spirits was our top priority this year. Not to discount the great national education system, as I was a product of the national education system, with an influence of the MRSM system during my upper secondary years. However, with the ever changing education system in Malaysia, we feel that we needed something more solid for our son with a surrounding that make him eager to go to school.
When I chanced upon Idrissi International School in Setia Alam, I knew it would be THE perfect school for Noah. The home schooling based education with Eco-based learning system attracts me the most as I know that my son is not the “learning by the book” type of kid. He loves to play (what kid doesn’t right?) and I believe that the learning through play system from The TreeHouse Islamic Playschool that he went to during the past 2 years fit him well. And now Idrissi would be the best transition place after TreeHouse.
Our first visit to Idrissi was a very welcoming one. Noah fell in love with the school. My husband and I fell in love with the school. Hence, it was just a matter of pulling our finances together to get him the best that he can get.
The fees charged by Idrissi School is actually one of the lowest for an International School. Basing from the quality of education and also the upkeep of the school, we agreed to proceed to sign Noah up for the September 2015 intake.
Noah felt right at home at Idrissi School even on his first day of school… Being the first born, of course Mummy was a bit emotional of sending him off to school (sob sob)
However, getting this tea bag with the message from the school made me relaxed.
When asked how was his day is school, he would answer “Great!”. And there was never a day when he woke up in the morning not wanting to go to school. He even cried when I told him that school was closed due to the haze!
Why Noah loves his school so much? I shall let these pictures do the talking.

The kids are taught to plant fresh produce during their “Bahasa & Alam” lessons.
Noah always come back from school with many stories about what he did for the day.. He would usually begin with “Mummy, did you know that the soil contains compost… etc etc etc…”
This is another favourite spot for Noah and his friends especially after school. Yes, they have live chickens at Idrissi!
and real goats too!
Lessons are not confined to the classrooms. They also learn outdoors!
Noah’s 1st field trip was to go shopping where they learn math, science and even many more cool stuffs!
They learn about the ingredients for the products. How to identify the halal logo.
And they went back with their shopping items and cooked lunch together!
Noah’s 2nd field trip was to Bank Negara to learn all about the currency. He was super excited to go that he begged me to let him go even though he had high fever!
This has to be the best thing that I LOVE about IDRISSI. The Islamic education are being inculcated throughout the education system. Hence, they never feel forced to actually do something, like performing the solat. In fact, these boys would actually stop playing when they hear the calling of azan and actually encouraged each other to take the wudhuk and perform their solat together in a jemaah without being asked. Masya Allah…. I shed a tear the 1st time I went to picked up Noah around Asar time and he asked me if I can wait few minutes so that he can perform the Asar prayer with his Ustaz and friends.
So my dear readers, providing the best education for our kids are important. However, what is more important is that we have to find a school that is best suited for our kids. We can’t force them to do something that is beyond their means. Learning should be encouraged and not forced. Kids should love going to school. They should be able to come back from school as said “I can’t wait to go to school again tomorrow!”
Thank you Allah for giving me this opportunity to give my son the BEST that he can get. Alhamdulillah for the rezeki (financial and time) that I have gained from this Premium Beautiful business that had given me the means to send him to IDRISSI SCHOOL.
