Coming up southeast of Kuala Lumpur approximately 25 kilometres away is Kajang, the township that is predicted to be the next boom area. These predictions are seemingly backed up by the number of big time developers moving into the town with developments such as Ecoworld’s Eco Majestic and SP Setia’s Setia Ecohill, complemented by new highways.
The locality of Putrajaya is only approximately 18 kilometres northeast of the town, while Seremban is about 45 kilometres away. Other hotspots that are close to the town are Bandar Baru Bangi, Cheras, Seri Kembangan and Semenyih.
Kajang was always a town that was always popular for its serene environment – hence many top notch universities were built here or within its vicinity. Some of the local universities that are located within Kajang are Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) and Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL). And located in the neighbouring town of Semenyih is the most prestigious University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, where students from all around the globe come to Malaysia to study.
Providing holistic education, there are a full range of schools in Kajang catering to students of all ages. There is a pre-school, primary school and secondary school within a few short kilometres of every housing area, providing convenience to parents.
For parents to choose from are options of Chinese national schools as well as local primary schools. Some of the more renowned secondary schools in this town are the Kajang High School, SMK Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah and SMK Kajang Utama. These schools are complemented by primary schools such as SK Sungai Kantan and SJK(C) Sungai Chua, Kajang.
The boarding school of SMA Persekutuan Kajang is also popular among Muslim parents, as SMA Persekutuan Kajang is one of the most famous Islamic boarding schools in Malaysia. Other schools that are of equal recognition in Kajang are the Eaton International School situated in Persiaran Jade Hills Utama and the Tanarata International School.
For more options of international syllabus schools, parents have the choice of sending their children to international schools in neighbouring towns such as the Australian International School Malaysia in The Mines Resort City, the Chempaka International School in Cheras, The Alice Smith School (secondary school) in Seri Kembangan or REAL International Schools in Hulu Langat.
Combining the rapid development of new residential projects in Kajang with the massive public transportation works to take place in the town as well as the new highways coming in, it is expected that Kajang will soon offer more choices of education institutions.
