"I find that the academic program at Signet Christian School is very balanced."


Student Experience

We are grateful to be admitted to this school. From the principal to the teachers, everyone was very patient and very friendly. Until now, we have experienced two teachers who are very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and have lots of passion for educating children. If there is anything that needs to be improved, it should be the school's IT facilities. Also, it would be better if schools could organize more extracurricular interest groups. Similarly, there are too few outing trips organized by schools at present. It would be better if the senior students have more opportunities to go out for natural experience or social practice. But all the lack of hardware facilities is made up for by the diligence of the teachers. In this school, my children not only learned more knowledge but also learned the Christian faith and applied it in their own life, making them more mature and stable


School Leadership

The principal and administrative staff were very nice and friendly and the whole registration process went very smoothly. The daily management of the school is also very simple and reasonable. School leaders take a number of ways to encourage parents to communicate. During this COVID-19 epidemic, the school established a special online communication group for parents. At the same time, the school management team has also established a special parent notification group for the school. If there is any news, parents can get it as soon as possible.


Teaching

Until now, we have experienced two teachers who are very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and have lots of passion for educating children. Teachers often take the initiative to communicate with parents about the child's situation and update the child's situation in a timely manner through various methods such as phone calls and emails. Teachers will also take pictures of their children at school to show parents to let them know about their school life. Teachers will think of various ways to increase children's interest in learning. Teachers will guide and lead children to do some very interesting projects. It's great that the children have plenty of opportunities for presentations and speech in their studies. Teachers will also recommend good books to encourage children to do a lot of reading outside of class.


Academics

In this school, my children not only acquired more knowledge but also learned the Christian faith and applied it in their own life, making them more mature and stable. Academically, it is clear that this school teaches more than what is taught in public schools. Not only will the scope be wider, but the teachers will also teach more deeply. Teachers also devote more attention to each child, providing targeted guidance and education. As a result, the children's academic performance improved rapidly. The only regret may be the school's IT facilities, which sometimes hinder children's learning, but we have also seen some teachers spend their own money to buy better laptops for students to use in order to give their children a better education. Very impressive. The teachers' leadership in faith is also worth mentioning. The children benefited a lot and became more friendly and helpful to each other.


Extracurriculars

The teaching here is obviously better than in the public schools but I personally think that the school's curriculum arrangement can be richer. If the school can organize more extracurricular interest groups, it will let students with the same interests get to know each other, learn and progress together, and even go out to participate in some national competitions on behalf of the school, so as to leave more beautiful and profound memories.


Students

My kids made a lot of friends here. Since there are only 5-7 students in a class, the classmates can easily get to know each other and get acquainted with each other. In addition, due to the Christian education environment of the school and teachers, the students get along very friendly. The teacher will let the students take turns to be responsible for some daily class management work, so every student can get the exercise of leadership. If the school can organize more extracurricular interest groups. It will let students with the same interests get to know each other, learn and progress together, and even go out to participate in some national competitions on behalf of the school, so as to leave more beautiful and profound memories.


School Life

It would be better if schools could organize more extracurricular interest groups. At this time, there are too few outing trips organized by schools at present. It would be better if the senior students have more opportunities to go out for natural experience or social practice. If the school can organize or participate in some sports activities in the future, such as sports meets or Terry Fox run or cross country, it will be very good for the students. It will make the students leave more beautiful and deep memories. Children like to go to school, not only because they have friends at school, and they like their teachers very much; but also because they have chapel and prayer and other religious life in school, so when they encounter difficulties, Know to seek God's help.


Community

Yes, schools have a number of ways to encourage parents to communicate. During the epidemic, the school established a special online communication group for parents. Teachers often take the initiative to communicate with parents about the child's situation and update the child's situation in a timely manner through various methods such as phone calls and emails. Teachers will also take pictures of their children at school to show parents to let them know about their school life. The school has a special annual party every year. We can not only see the children's excellent performances but also communicate with each other between parents and teachers. During the pandemic, these activities have moved online, but we can still get to know each other through the platform provided by the school.


School Location

The school is in a church building, so it is very quiet and safe. The neighbours on both sides of the school building are also the buildings of two churches. In a sense, the school is located in the "church district." So the school environment is very safe and friendly. The churches on both sides allow parents to park their cars in the church parking lot when picking up their children when the school parking lot is not enough. Probably the only regret is that the school has less green space.
