As in primary schools, students are promoted to the next year regardless of their academic performance. Co-curricular activities are compulsory at the secondary level, where all students must participate in at least 2 activities for most states, and 3 activities for the Sarawak region.

These schools are either full-time day or boarding schools 'asrama penuh'.
These schools used to cater mainly for Malay elites but have since expanded as schools for nurturing Malays who are outstanding academically or those displaying talents in sports and leadership. The schools are modelled after British Boarding School.
