Kheng Cheng

There's nothing quite like being able to discuss issues and network with other parents with children in the same school as yours. Individual Schools' Official Parent Support Groups are welcome to come in and help out the incoming groups of parents.

Back-gate opening hours

:?: Can only operates only on afternoon session during term holidays. Why can't extend for morning? KCS has been very protective and against the idea of extending this morning session despite of several complaints and write-in to MPs and MOE. :stupid:

according to most parents who had feedback previously and wrote an appeition, got blacklisted.

There is a lot of homeworks and school is stern of unable to go in unless is very urgent basis otherwise, they will be harsh to reject your request coz they are always emphasising 'children safety'.

Besides this, hows the school in terms of academic and teachers?

Any after school care around the school?

Hello,

I notice that there is little discussion and mention about kheng Cheng Pri in this forum.

Is this an unpopular school?

How do the school's pupils perform academically & the overall standards & quality of teachers?

My son is currently in Kheng Cheng and I have nothing but praise for his teachers.

Despite coming from an English educated background, his Mandarin teachers have been very excellent in helping him learn and cope with the subject. His grades in P1 &2 were always in the 90s and in P3, it fell a little to 80 as it got harder.

His form teachers have always been caring and encouraging. They are firm but also quick to praise. KCS teachers really have a heart for the kids. They keep parents well informed of their kid's behavior through phone calls or emails.

The school also has engaging enrichment classes. It also has both regular and e-homework.

It might be a neighborhood primary school but the kids are well-behaved, the school is nurturing and my kid loves it.

My DS has been given the option to switch to GEP next year & he is keen on trying out the GEP curriculum. I will miss this school and its supportive staff and environment that has nurtured our child. I am glad he spent the first three years of his school going life in KCS. Kids come from all walks of life here and it has been a form of good exposure for him.

I find that the discipline is strict but the school doesn't nit pick on how neat your uniform is, focusing on character and attitude which is more crucial IMHO. The uniform is v comfy- for boys the shirts are not tucked in. :)

The down side IMHO- canteen is not fantastic. Be prepared to pack a lunchbox.
