Instilling Goodness Elementary & Developing Virtue Secondary Schools Reviews

All Categories
School welcomes students from different backgrounds and belief systems. Campus is perfect for studying and embracing nature. Daily tutoring session after school opens to all students who want to learn. Strong alumni network can support many innovative ideas and plans if students ever feel needed. Teachers here are erudite, supportive and passionate; they might not be qualified in the aspect of not having a certificate, but they received at least a Master's Degree (in fact, mostly Ph.D) in their fields of teaching. Strict rules are set on the good intention of the school and its founder. Students are encouraged to do community service to gain self-value, and they do have meditation/world religion/ethics class to enrich their interfaith and global understanding. Last but not least, students make lifetime friends here.

Overall it is an amazing school. Academically it is very challenging. Teachers are great and the class sizes are tiny. The Buddhist teachings help with spiritual development. I feel 100% safe with my child at this school. I do wish the boys school and the girls school interacted. I believe there is a lost opportunity for social development here. Also, I wish the facilities were in better condition. However, the campus is beautiful and they are constantly working to improve the facilites.
This school helped me really practice self-discipline. Growing up going to this school I got to focus academically, but what the school lacs is the social interaction. Since it is an all-girls school, we have absolutely no contact with the boy's division of our school and in my opinion, should be necessary for both genders because if we do not know how to act around boys or men, how is that preparing us for society? Yes, academically normally the students excel, but what about their knowledge in how to professionally or casually speak to a person of the opposite gender?
