it's rigid. A crossover between a jail and being in the military.

TCISKL education philosophy is the nurturing and fostering in their students the virtue of great love, and the love for learning. TCISKL provides excellent study environment. One of the best international school in the region.

Tzu chi is a very nice as a school because the facilities are very clean, the school is keen about protecting the pupils due to the fact that the pupils have to ask for permission for a teacher to look over the students when using the facilities. The teachers are also very friendly and kind compared to other schools.

Poor management team, lazy administration? Terrible food quality, definitely not recommend this school. School has big and spacious sport Center but always lock and nobody is allowed to use. Principal is not responding to parents email seriously, no feedback of the parents in taken into consideration seriously. Coop only open two hour twice a week, make many inconvenience to us. Too many rules and regulations, more like a military school and keep instilling tzu chi philosophy from time to time like their religion is the best of the world. Not open enough like international school, definitely not recommended

Tzu chi is a splendid organization, which may lead to an assumption that Tzu chi international school is a good school, however this school is absolutely terrible. if you are in year 10 and you take science they don't intend on supplying lab coats to you, normally it would be okay if you are constantly doing experiments. But no, we only did 2 experiments within the past 5 months and those experiments dont even require you to wear any coat. The school has a nice swimming pool but if you think your 30k fees is going to allow you to swim, you are wrong, swimming pools are only allowed on cca which is 1k+ and school badminton racquets are cheap most of them are disoriented, footballs are low quality. And dont get me started on the food, encouraging vegetarianism is good but imagine being forced to eat bland, tasteless and in general disgusting food certainly makes me thank god for creating meat. the food is so disgusting and unappetizing that it gives me nausea just by looking at it. Teachers are also leaving for various reasons such as low salary, bad management and so on, all of the good teachers we had are all gone, we are literally getting teachers that are boring and waiting for a better offer to leave. Im not saying that there are no good teachers in our school, just less. not The school uniform quality is getting worse and worse every year too. Im done here if i continue to write even more i doubt i can even finish

Generally, quite happy with the "hardware" , aka facilities, even though not all has been completed. The teaching quality and communication is quite okay so far. However, it is quite like a Chinese School, looking at majority of the students were from Chinese local school background, hopefully in coming years they will get more mixed of students. Fees is rather reasonable looking at the shcool is a full fledge international school as compared to those "shoplot" type. I would like said is more like the mid range international schools pricing. Pure vegetarian for kids within the campus
