Are these schools about the same standard? In terms of academic and discipline. With a T-score of around 200, what other schools can we consider in Tampines for express stream? :sweat:

Visited East Spring on Saturday and Junyuan yesterday.
Though COP for JY (205) is lower than ES (211), but curriculum provided by JY has more varieties. School ambience for JY is nicer and bigger as compared to ES.

Should I go for school with higher COP, ie ES or school with a nice ambience that I like to spend in the next 4 years, i.e. JY?

JY is one of the 22 secondary schools offering Computer Studies as an O level school-initiated electives. The school has other initiative like using mobile phone in class for e-Learning, currently rollout for Science only.

There is also a café run by students, whose parents are working, and have no where to go after school hour. From here, they learn how to run a business, accountings, teamwork, etc.

The school is also setting up an interactive learning wall with 4 big LED screens to keep students updated with the current news affair. This is to cater for students who hardly read newspaper at home.

There is also a small studio with different musical instruments for students to learn, play and relax after school hours.

All these are some of the non-core curriculums that attracted me.


Visited Tampines Secondary this afternoon. The school building and facilities are very new and nice. This school is one of my choice too. Any infor to share for this school?

Thanks mlsa0808, for the info! Didnt know that the schools are open for visit on weekdays too? Hence, not sure about Tampines Sec but based on the grey booklet, they do not offer much subjects and if you visit their website, you cant find much info either. School may look and feel new though, cos of the recent upgrade/reno. JY really sounds attractive from the way you described. As for ES, we often see students smoking around the void decks but then again, i think all schools have smokers. So, disciplinary aspects of the schools is abit concern here. What do you think?

You can walk in anytime between 8am to 5pm, Mon to Fri.
My friend is teaching at ES. According to him discipline is strict within the school. Out of the school, they cant control.

Hmm understand but school must make clear to students that so long as they are in school uniform, they represent the school. So must at least behave, and if school receives complaint from the public, school should take some actions against the students who misbehave in public.
