MRSM Gerik was completed in 1991. It is located in Nassah hill, Kampung Kenayat, with an area of 75 acres. The distance from Gerik town is about 13 km.

The view of Gerik MRSM is beautiful as it is surrounded by lush greenery, clean surroundings, comfortable and fresh air and away from the bustle of the city. This location promotes student learning. In the morning, there is always mist forming around the school which makes the students to feel like they learn overseas.

The recruitment of MRSM Gerik teachers and staff began on December 1, 1993. The initial phase of student recruitment was at the end of January 1994 where MRSM Gerik recruited students from Form 2 to 94 while in February 1994 the Form 1 students were 144.

In the early stages, there was not much infrastructure available but now, with the completion of phase 2 construction, MRSM Gerik has been equipped with a variety of facilities and equipment to meet the educational needs and requirements. The construction of phase 2 involves the addition of offices, halls, living skills workshops, dormitories, principal's homes and assistant principals, teachers' homes and staff homes.[1]

Students' Developments

[2] There are some student organisations that empower MRSM students:

1. Student Representative Council (BWP)

Consists of students elected by students through the electoral process. The main BWP roles are:

  • Promote the welfare of students in collaboration with College administration.
  • Become a medium for the student body and administration.
  • Organize student activities
  • Facilitate the implementation of College activities.

[2]2. Student Disciplinary Board

Student Disciplinary Board (LDP) is one of the branches of extra-curricular activities that helps college students enforce college regulations. LDP Student Disciplinary Board was established to:

  • Create a harmonious learning environment in MRSM where students are disciplined and honorable.
  • Create a generation of students with good leadership characteristics.
  • Names of eligible students who have leadership qualities will be proposed and an interview will be conducted for their selection process.

Notable alumni

The alumni association of MRSM Gerik is known as the ANSARA Gerik (ANak SAins MARA Gerik).



Nasah2.0 is the official alumni for the 2nd batch of MRSM Gerik (SPM 98). They registered at Bukit Nasah on 28 March 1994 (1st intake), the same year the school was opened. Nasah2.0 was the first batch that studied here starting in Form 1 as the first batch joined when they were already in Form 2. The batch comprises 147 students spread out to six classes and 10 homerooms. The school was still lacking a lot of facilities back in year 1994, including water and electricity problem. As a result, this has created a strong bond between members. Notably, the strength of this batch is not on its individual members, but rather their reliance and closeness to each other; almost like a big family.


V6 is the official alumni for the 6th batch of MRSM Gerik (PMR 2000).
