I’m a very happy parent that made the right choice for my daughter to enrol to this school. The school is good for those who wants a well behaved and self motivated child. For long term, I see traditional good values in this school, there’s no need to argue about technology as I don’t think children nowadays need a phone nor a personal laptop in school for studies. It’s not like the school doesn’t offer ICT subject, the technology has already occupied most of everyone’s life now. I appreciate the school for still stressing on how important is handwritten notes, creativity in arts (not digital art) and interpersonal skills. At least in the school, the students don’t hold their phone and talk and cyber bullying is strictly prohibited. Students get along well in this school, they have simpler yet clearer minds too. Due to the small scale of students, everything is under well control, I’d say perhaps it’s not an ideal school for those who wants upscale learning and polite teachers. The school is very traditional, greetings and discipline are their utmost importance. To me, this is what I had been looking for, I’m very glad my daughter is well educated by the teachers here, I believe every school has its pros and cons. As a parent, I’m grateful of ELC still infusing moral values within, which is very rare in most international schools. School is the second home to children, teachers are like their parents to guide and teach, parents need to have clear mind to choose for their kids. Not letting the kids do what they want entirely. Above review is based on my own non bias thoughts, I’m sorry if I’d offended anyone.

this school is absolutely horrible. the principal is stupid and the teachers are dumb except for like, three of them. they're not very good at their job in terms of supporting the students emotionally and they aren't very understanding. i do not recommend going to this school at ALL. the facilities are horrible and the school only cares about your mental health till you're struggling with your studies, after that you're labelled as "lazy". i wasted a decade in this school and i'm really happy i'll be leaving soon. elc has the nerve to publish articles about how they go beyond learning in the classroom when the most they do is a few field trips here and there. elc is also way too traditional for a school that's run in 2020s, they need to get with the times, we've been using the same pcs ever since i was in year one and that's stupid because most international schools have advanced past this yet elc is still stuck in the 1990s. this school is an absolute joke of an academic instituition and a huge waste of money.

As a student myself, I can say that elc is an incredible school filled with amazing students and friends. However, there is a small amount of teachers who genuinely care about you. Most teachers do not care for you and bully you for anything they can, and will even lie about what you said to make themselves look better. I myself have been a victim of this from multiple teachers. Despite this, there are a handful of teachers that you can tell want to help you and have a passion for teaching. If these teachers read this, I hope both sides of your pillow are cold for the rest of your life. I do personally believe that respect is a two-way thing, and some of these teachers do not deserve any of the students' respect. Students should be able to be comfortable and consult teachers when they need help, but judging from some of the teachers I've seen, I'd be surprised if anyone actually liked them. Please do better, because teachers are an extremely important part of our lives, they are able to bring our self-esteem as high as the skies or as low as the depths of the Earth. Numerous classmates of mine have been targeted by teachers which not only lowered their self-esteem, but it was so bad to a point they left the school. elc is a spectacular school, but in order to keep students from leaving of their own accord and have them continue their passion for learning, some teachers need to be fired or disciplined.

Overall

The facilities are very poor and they like to portray there students as criminals and would rather just put the blame on one student for multiple things that have gone missing rather than go through an extensive investigation to really understand what has happened. Many of the teachers there were honestly amazing, but I believe that this school does not believe in progressive learning and would much rather stick to traditional ways of teaching which held many teachers back. This was a major factor leading up to the large amount of young and amazing teachers leaving. Many of the higher Ranking teachers believe they are a far more superior than both parents and junior teachers of the school which I find absolutely disgraceful and believe that this school is not fit for students of this generation. All this comes from what I saw and experienced in elc while attending this joke of an education institute

It has dedicated, kind and intelligent teachers and a conducive learning environment. The students are funny, smart and are eager to learn - new students who join will have new friends-for-life. The curriculum has both science AND arts mixed as well.

Great value for money. Focus heavily on academics, though they are making good progress in broadening focus outside of academics. elc is certainly working on moving up the value chain as they know they can no longer compete only on price and parents are expecting a more holistic education experience.

Not a good place to work. Management will squeeze as much as they can from you. Watch out, teachers.

While the education in this school is excellent they are not respectful of religious beliefs. My nephew who is a Sikh was asked to remove his beard although it is religiously accepted globally. This leaves me with a very poor opinion of this school and what kind of values would be taught and respected. They are arrogant in their approach.
