The Yong Peng High School is the only Chinese Independent School in the town, while national secondary schools include SMK Yong Peng, and SMK Dato’ Seth. Higher learning institutions are not available in town, which has rendered the younger generation to move to other larger towns and cities in Johor and the peninsula in search of further education and ultimately, employment.
