Admiralty 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.

I would like to know which school is better: Admiralty Secondary School or Woodlands Ring Secondary School? Both their SDPs are on Robotics and engineering but there is a big gap between them in terms of ranking. Thanks.

Hi! blue2004,

Presently, my eldest child is studying at Admiralty Secondary School (ADSS) and my 2nd child is studying at Woodlands Ring Secondary School (WRSS).

ADSS was my eldest child 1st choice and WRSS was my 2nd child 1st choice during S1 posting. We are very happy with both schools.

Principals, Vice Principals and teachers of both schools are committed and provide very strong supports to students. Both schools emphasize the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Applied Learning Program (ALP) of both schools is robotics and it forms part of schools' curriculums for lower secondary education.

ADSS conducts meet-the-parent session twice a year and to meet all parents instead of meeting only selected parents (most schools conduct such session only once a year and only to meet selected parents eg parents of students who are weak academically and/or students with poor learning attitude). At ADSS, such session will be conducted at 6.30 pm in order to enable working parents to attend (I was very impressed with its teachers as they conducted the sessions till as late as 11 pm). School extends opening hour with teachers on duty during national examinations period. They nurture students from all streams equally. Higher Mother Tongue classes are conducted within school premises (students of some schools may need to
attend combined HMT classes at other schools). From my observation and feedback from my child, ADSS has good standards of discipline.

WRSS conducts at least one meet-the-parent session but teachers will meet parents of students with poor learning attitude and/or weak academically more than once. WRSS is famous for strict discipline and school nurtures students from all streams equally too. My child gains his self-confidence level after enrolling to WRSS. School's Parent Support Group (PSG) is active.

In short, both schools are good schools. :smile: :smile:
