(3.5) Student Experience
I enjoy attending Royal Crown School. It is a very structured and diverse school full of many people from across the world. One thing I wish I’d known before attending was the more intense and strict academics and rules of the school: there are 4 semesters each with 2 classes per semester and almost 2 tests each week or every other week. To go with the intense academics, there are strict attendance and uniform rules that give the students structure. If I could change one thing within Royal Crown it would be more say on the lunch provided to the students because you only get 3 meals a day and I would like to have each of them be both healthy and something the students want.
(4) School Leadership
I have a lot of respect for the teachers, principals, and especially the counsellors. The principal has many experiences of his own both academically and not which he likes to share with the students to have us do better. The teachers are very experienced in their fields for example Mrs. Freeman, she is very knowledgeable in art and has many years within the school and outside making her a great teacher. And the guidance counsellors have great people skills and communication with them and their communication with the students is excellent.
I believe that each teacher asks for excellence within every student no matter who you are. I feel that I do understand the expectations that each teacher has of me, due to the high marks I get from the great teaching at this school the teachers put a higher expectation for me and all the other students who attend this school. Any time my teachers talk about success I don’t feel that it is an individual success more so the whole class, because they try and expect success and excellence from everyone. What I think they mean about success is everyone not only passing the class they’ve enrolled in but excelling within the class achieving A’s in the class and focusing on being the best student.
With a wide range of challenging courses and very dedicated teachers, Royal Crown School provides an exceptional learning environment. The curriculum is designed to foster critical thinking, creativity, and a love for learning. From advanced STEM programs to enriching courses, there's something for everyone. The school also offers various extracurricular activities, such as chess club, volleyball club, and art murals, to further enhance students' skills and interests. The supportive community and resources available make it a perfect place to thrive academically. Royal Crown School is truly committed to providing a top-notch education and preparing students for future success with different colleges and universities visiting Royal Crown. This helps students keep embracing the opportunities and making the most of their academic journey at Royal Crown School.
Royal Crown School's extracurriculars are very good. From chess clubs to soccer clubs and art clubs, there's something for everyone. These activities help everyone explore their passions and develop new skills outside the classroom. It's great that your Royal Crown School supports a well-rounded education. The only thing I wished they offered was a debate team at the Royal Crown School.
The students at Royal Crown School are a diverse and vibrant community of kids from all over the world attending the school. It feels more like a close-knit town where everyone knows each other and is friends. The best students are those who are curious, driven, and open-minded. They thrive in the supportive and inclusive environment at Royal Cown, actively participating in various activities and making the most of the academic opportunities. While everyone is encouraged to succeed, some students may face challenges. Those who struggle may benefit from seeking extra support from teachers and peers. Overall, the school strives to create an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels valued and included. It's a place where friendships are formed, ideas are shared, and growth is fostered.
(4) School Life
If I were giving a tour of your school to visitors, I would take them first to the cafeteria. It's the bustling hub of social activity and a place where students gather to enjoy delicious meals together. The cafeteria not only provides nourishment but also fosters a sense of community among the students and friendship. Visitors would get to see the vibrant atmosphere within the cafeteria, taste the diverse menu options provided to us by the cafeteria staff from across the world, and experience the lively interactions among students and not only students but the cafeteria staff. It's a great opportunity to showcase the school's commitment to providing a very welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy no matter the click you associate yourself with.
Yes, the school definitely feels like home to me! The warm and welcoming atmosphere, along with the supportive community, makes it a place where I feel comfortable and appreciated. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to create a nurturing environment where everyone's voice is heard and valued. They promote inclusivity and encourage students to celebrate their unique talents and backgrounds with many different events hosted across the year. Whether it's through clubs, sports teams, or special events, there are countless opportunities for everyone to get involved and feel included. The sense of belonging and the friendships I've made here truly make it feel like a second home to me and many other students. I'm grateful to be part of such an inclusive and appreciative community!
(4) School Location
Students at our school have the freedom to go off campus during certain times, like lunch breaks. Some students choose to explore nearby places or grab a bite to eat off campus. However, many students prefer to stay on campus throughout the day, as our school provides a variety of amenities and activities to keep them engaged. It's a nice balance between exploring the surrounding area and enjoying the convenience and resources available on campus.
Applying for admission was an exciting journey for me. My advice would be to start early, gather all required documents, and showcase your unique qualities and interests in your application to Royal Crown. During my own experience, I felt a mix of excitement and nerves because applying to attend a studious and well-organized school was a new experience for me but overall it was a fun process because of the new experience of applying to a school like this. Looking back, I now realize the importance of being very authentic and making sure to highlight all of my passions during the process. It's also helpful to reach out to current students or attend admissions events to get a better sense of the school's culture.
