This is the school from hell not only for teachers but also for students, it is now slowly disintegrating as teachers and students are quitting in droves. Sending your child here or working here is highly not recommended.

Reasons why?

the school accepts the worse kinds of students, the trash that other schools wont take.

The school has had multiple cases of crime in the school, theft of computers, large sums of money and other things like violence and the school does not remove the students or even punish them.

The management in highly inept and has allowed the school to be run into the ground, the building are falling apart, teachers live on campus in ratty one room dorms with no facilities and there is no money for resources of any kind.

All the money is controlled by the boss in China who refuses to pay for the most basic things and is slowly killing the school by not giving over the money for the most basic necessities such as fixing classrooms, or computers systems or making the school safe by hiring security guards or adding security cameras after thieves have repeatedly broken into the dormitory.

Student discipline is lax and students can ditch class and are not punished because no one knows where they are, there is no roll check done after first period.

Teachers are not of the highest quality, all the good ones leave, those that stay dont care and let the students do what they want.

The school has been without a counselor, or a school nurse for 3 months, and there are no proper medical facilities to help them even if they were there

Also one of the current female teachers in the school dated a female student with the school having knowledge and was not fired or removed

another teacher bought alcohol for students

Sexual abuse of students by students was reported by parents of students to the school and nothing was done, in fact it was deliberately covered up

Even when students, teachers and parents complain nothing is done.


So many parents are pulling their kids out of the school, many of the teachers are not coming back for the next academic year and more are expected to leave, the management gives ludicrous power point displays and thinks that will help.

The recruitment staff will lie to your face about the situation so dont believe a word they say and the website and brochures tell blatant lies.

avoid this school if you know whats good for you, the problems are not getting better they are getting worse.

Hey eslbob,
Did you work at CNIS Chinese International Singapore? They are currently advertising on this website for teachers.
Anyway, thanks for your warnings, Rob
