School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos:
We give students various chances to explore and follow their passions, allowing them to define success in different ways, based on our belief that “Everyone Is Different, Everyone Can Succeed.” We work hard to provide a vibrant learning environment where students enjoy studying and are encouraged to explore their passions. We value the spirit of discovery to prepare students for the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world. Tanglin Secondary School cultivates in students the ability to think critically, creatively, and inventively to solve issues. We want kids to endure in the face of adversity and be able to grab chances. All based on the principles of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Care, and Curiosity to Learn guarantee that students collaborate, lead, and develop into valuable community members.
CCAs are an essential component of our student’s overall education. Students gain values and competencies that will equip them for a quickly changing world while discovering their interests and abilities via CCA. As they study, play, and grow together, CCA fosters friendships among students from many backgrounds. CCA encourages social integration and strengthens students’ feelings of belonging, dedication, and duty to their school, community, and country.
