I will never send my kid to a neighbourhood school
« on: July 28, 2018, 08:02:42 pm »
I am a trainer who have been around and across Singapore to train students and teachers. All school are good schools? Definitely no. Government schools will rarely surpass these well known schools.

Student population (secondary schools)

Better (well known) schools still maintain a higher PSLE score requirement before admission. Literally, a good school will have smarter kids. When I mean smart, I am talking about how well they cope with studies. They have stronger self discipline and motivation regarding learning as a whole. Which leads to my next point. Government/neighbourhood kids can be really rowdy. Some coughing vulgarities faster than you can understand them. Very often their intellect is misdirected and they spend it being an annoyance to the rest of the group. This therefore results in very disrupted learning.

Quality of teaching staff

Your students are smart, they learn things fast; besides teachers are also specially selected. They are quite often, the best of the bunch or former students (alumni). With prior knowledge of the school culture, these teachers are just adult versions of their students assuming a supervisory role. Government school teachers on the other hand are often swamped with multiple (at times possibly inexplicable) responsibilities and consequently feel less attached to their jobs.


A well known school typically has a huge and largely successful alumni that can be tapped on for resources and networking purposes. Members of these alumni still actively engage the school and organize events on a regular basis. This link-up is a good way for the students to establish an even stronger alliance of contacts for the future. A government school would not have access to such a luxury. Some even merge with other institutions or even shut down altogether, thus resulting in an alumni that is small in size and much more apathetic.

I felt that if the teaching staff's teaching skills are good, then it is enough. I have seen many worst teachers I have encountered, most of them are lazy to teach, doesn't care, get frustrated easily when students do not understand the teacher's teaching as their teaching methods are horrible. This same goes for tutors as well, not just only school's teachers.
