    USJ12 School Top 5 School?

    A friend told me that the USJ12 (secondary) school is the Top 5 school in Malaysia. Is this true?

    And STPM is one of the toughest examination in the world. Subjective? Baseless? Yes.

    USJ12 has a secondary school???
    You see my point, some of us in malaysia are not even aware of the existance of this school, let alone believe that its amongst the Top 5.

    Hmmm.....

    This school is very popular - once parents heard about this school, it was overwhelmed by the enrolment demands. If you were to look at the Form 1 student list, you will find that probably 70% of the population came from Chinese medium primary schools, most of them from Lick Hung and you even see others from top Chinese schools in PJ.

    Apart from the enrolment, you must also give credit to the headmistress and the school teachers (I understand that there is only one male teacher). If you were to look at last year's school magazine, you will find that it is not the standard school magazine - it is in full colour and very creative. That says a lot about the talents amongst the students as well as the forward-thinking school management.

    I have no info on the school's performance as the Education Ministry does not encourage publicising such information as that would make certain schools overly popular.

    BTW, there isn't ONE school in SJ/USJ that provides classes for STPM. The highest level is Form 5 or SPM.

    Err buddy...you mentioned 50% of the secondary school students at USJ12...hail from the Lick Hung Primary School...at SS19.

    Dear Chang mentioned...there could be about 70% of them...mostly from the Lick Hung Primary School...at SS19....(the increase could be from the enrollment of Chee Wen's 1st ever graduation of 3 classes of Standard 6 students in 2006 last year)

    IF there were 1 SMJK(c) or National-Type(sounded like 2nd Class) (c) Secondary School within the community of USJ/Subang Jaya...Orchi bets MOST of the secondary students at USJ12 if NOT 99%...would be from the National Primary Schools...or Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan...

    ONLY few students from SRJK(c) Lick Hung...would wanna enroll with USJ 12 by then...

    Oh btw...whatever happened to those many students from the many Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan...around USJ/Subang Jaya...WHY aren't they enrolled with USJ12...since the USJ12 school is much accredited with a good headmistress n other good school teachers...???

    Why only 30% enrolment of Primary students from those National Primary Schools...???

    There ought to be many more...where are the rests...???

    All gone or 'moved' to Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan...National Secondary School...at USJ 4...WHY Ar?

    Orchi,
    At the end of the school year, all Std6 students in Lick Hung were given seminars about private Chinese schools in Klang (there is more than one of them). However, I do not think many parents have taken up the option. I believe most parent feel that 6 years in Primary school is enough for Mandarin education. The parents would prefer to send their kids to national secondary schools so that they get a better chance to make it to Universities. What now with Maths and Science in English, that is more reason to move to a national school. Although the private Chinese schools may offer Maths and Science in English but we doubt if they would do so. As private schools, they would not be bound by the need to teach in English.

    If you were to do a survey, a lot of parents in USJ/SJ are actually Chinese illiterate like myself. We send our kids to the vernacular school purely for reasons of better teaching, well behaved children, strict teachers, hard-working teachers. Studying Mandarin was actually secondary to me (may not apply to other parents). My selection of a school is to ensure my kids get a good education. I doubt if there will be any demands for a Mandarin secondary school in USJ.

    I would say if there is an affordable International school teaching entirely in English in USJ, that school would be in greater demand. What say the rest of you parents?

    Thumbs down

    Talking about the school having good teachers. I doubt it. My son is in Form 4 this year and today he told me that his biology teacher is hopeless.

    Guess what, this particular teacher still conducts her biology class in Bahasa.

    We all know that Science subjects have been taught in English for a few years now. She hardly speaks English and if she does, it's broken English. Most of the students in the class hardly pay attention and are yawning away most of the time.

    What has happened to our education system? This pathetic situation even happend in a so called "Top School" in an urban area like Sj/USJ. Can you imagine in other less urban/rural areas where parents could not afford to pay for extra tuition class to make up for the shortcomings.

    Hi ... correction, dear Chang ... the secondary school in SS17 is offering Form 6 classes (I think it's the first batch this year ...)

    Thanks for your feedback, dear forumers.

    USJ 2 Secondary also conduct STPM. In fact this is the only USJ secondary school that have STPM. They too have 4/ 5 classes allocated for Chinese Primary School.

    Forgive an old man's ignorance in these matters, but are you telling us that in secondary schools, students from "chinese" type schools are put into separate classes from students from the "normal" national schools.

    Yes cos these students will take PMR Chinese. They do mix with Indians from Tamil Primary School & Malays from National School whom will be taking PMR Tamil & Islamic Studies. I suppose this is to facilitate easier teaching. The National school non-muslim students will still have their own "mother tongue" language classes but will be a much lower syllabus. Muslim will still get ther Islamic Studies

    Thanks for enlightening me.

    Is this the case for all secondary schools ? Why cannot they be separated just for the language and religious classes rather than being placed in different classes for all the other lessons ?
