Yishun Town Secondary School

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

hi everyone, my son just finished O levels and he did very well for his O levels. I recall the hours the teachers spent last year in motivating and pushing the Sec 4 cohort. I am so proud to say my son went to YTSS.

My wife was an Alumni and we badly wanted my son to get into YTSS due to its excellent reputation. He was struggling in Pri sch but managed to boost himself up to get into Express at PSLE but we opted for him to join YTSS at NA and have no regrets. He loves the school and convienient location and support from the teachers have been fantastic. He is now 1 of the top students in the level. Where else his frens who went to Express in other less reputable schs are now slacking off. Alot of character moulding is also positively presented by YTZens wherever i see them. Highly recommended!

Jaydazzlerz,
May I ask what TScore your son scored that make you decide to let him attend NA in YTSS instead of Exp in another school?

My daughter is joining ytss school, this year. I had a little idea about this school, when I put this as top choice among o level schools. Now i am happy that i have chosen this school. The teachers are really caring.
I had some problem with my dds hmt choice. I informed about this to mother tongue hod. In spite of not having hmt in the school (they only have chinese hmt here), the mother tongue hod took pains to call our language centre, email them (2 centers) about our requirement, send me a letter from principal, and update about the things thro email, to me. I had talked to her only once and she took the action on the same day itself. I am really very happy about this.

My daughter is in ytss, sec 1. I love the teachers here. They are quick to spot out the talents in students and encourage them. When my dd had some problem with her classmates, the form teacher found it before the news reached me and solved the issue. Principal is a wonderful lady, who likes to mingle with kids and parents. Discipline wise they are more strict. Once I saw the discipline master talking with the late comers and realised why my dd was always early to school. academic wise also the school is good.

Contemplating YTSS as one of our 6 choices. Any current student or parent can list down the pros and cons of the school?
