Widely known as the premiere school in Johor Bahru, Seri Omega International School was founded in 2002 with only a few hundred students in Jalan Harimau, since then the school moved to Taman Sutera Utama in 2007 and most recently it has moved once more to Senai in 2014. The school tutors over 2400 students and out of around 150 teachers, around 20 are expatriate teachers who speak with a native English accent.
The school today is based along the Johor Bahru-Kuala Lumpur Highway, about two kilometres south of the town of Senai and features over 90 air-conditioned classrooms equipped with LCD projectors, six science labs, two computer labs, two design & technology workshops, a football field, two basketball courts, a multi-purpose hall with 1200 seats, a library and a semi-Olympic sized swimming pool.
The school uses two curriculum types differing between the Private and International school curricula. The Chinese language is offered as a secondary language at all levels but depending on the curriculum types, other languages will vary.
In the Private School Curriculum, the KBSR/KSSR curriculum is followed between Primary years one to six, and the KBSM/KSSM curriculum is followed between Secondary years one to five. Additionally the students sit a UPSR exam at the end of the sixth year of Primary as well as an SPM exam at the end of the fifth year of Secondary. Malay is the main language taught in for the curriculum but English is also given a strong emphasis.
The International School Curriculum sees students following the National British curriculum offered by Cambridge University in the UK and splits the Primary and Secondary School departments into years one to six for primary and years seven to eleven for secondary. At the end of the eleventh year, all students sit IGCSE ‘O’ Level Examinations. This curriculum is mainly taught in English but also features the Malay language offered as a secondary language throughout the course.
