"REALbasic is the ideal environment to use in computer programming classrooms as it is a modern, object-oriented version of BASIC that is easy to teach and fun to learn."

"The Ministry of Education and Science was looking for a programming environment to replace Visual Basic to teach programming on the Macintosh and we found REALbasic a few years ago," commented Malgorzata Charezinska, Education Manager for Apple Poland.
