School areas and vicinity
SASEM has two fields, one for hockey and another one for Rugby, Football and other Field Events. There are only three parking spaces in the academic block and two in the hostels, one each for the girls and the boys hostels. There are two basketball courts in the school and one big hall which has a stage with curtains and three badminton courts. There is one volleyball court each in the boys' hostel and the girls' hostel. There is an additional Sepak Takraw court in the boys' hostel. The school is also equipped with labs for every science subject (Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology), a room each for French Language and Japanese Language, a music room, an art studio, a viewing room and also a Multimedia Studio. The rooms and the sports area are all available for students' use under teachers' supervision.
The nearest town to the school is Bandar T6, located less than five minutes to the school. Bandar T6 is a quaint little town equipped with a few grocery stores and a mosque which is where the male students go for their Friday prayers. This town is however not the place where the students go for their weekly outings, the school bus would usually bring the students for their outing to the Kluang town, located 12 km from the school. The school is also near to the Kluang Hospital, the Hospital Enche' Besar Hajjah Kalsom, where the hostel wardens would bring the sick students for treatments or check-ups.
SASEM is a big school; the total area is more than 60 acres. The hostels can accommodate a maximum of 850 students. The school complex is divided into two areas, one area for the academic and administrative buildings and the other for the hostels. The two areas are separated by a small stream which the school cannot do anything about because it is under the jurisdiction of the Water and Drainage Department. It takes about a 15 minutes walk from the hostel to the academic building.
