School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
Guided by our philosophy 'Everyone Is Unique, All Can Succeed', we provide students with rich opportunities to discover and pursue their passion so that they can define success in multiple ways. We strive towards a culture of active learning, ensuring students experience joy in learning that drive their self-directedness. To prepare students for the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, we value the spirit of exploration, cultivating in students the capacity to think critically, creatively and inventively to solve problems. We want them to persevere through challenges and have the flexibility to seize opportunities. All these are grounded on the values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Care and Curiosity to Learn that ensure students work collaboratively, exercise leadership and grow to become contributing members of the community.

Special Student Development Programmes Offered
The TSS curriculum is designed to provide students with rich learning opportunities to maximise their potential in the academic and co-curricular areas for future-readiness. Students can pursue subjects such as Electronics, Literature (English) and Art, on top of Pure Sciences and Additional Mathematics. Our Applied Learning Programme, Tanglin PLUS, is a distinctive programme which gives focus to the Humanities. It is aimed at developing students to become informed persons, critical thinkers, confident and effective communicators. Tanglin PLUS takes the learning of Geography, History and Social Studies beyond the classroom, enabling students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-life contexts such as in habitat enhancement programmes in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and community programmes that promote Singapore's unity and security. Tanglin PLUS complements the school's existing strengths in Mathematics, Science and Applied Subjects. For its Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), TSS is proud to offer the Arts Programme, focusing on Music, Dance and Visual Arts. Students begin with a broad-based exposure to various musical, dance and visual art forms before opting for talent development electives to deepen their skills in show choir, dance, guitar or the visual arts. In collaboration with NAFA and NAC, the Arts Programme also provides students the exposure to the local arts scene and the career opportunities it has to offer. In TSS, it is always about growing leaders. Our customised four-year Student Leadership Development Programme ensures that students are equipped with the leadership skills and competencies so that they become compassionate leaders who are ready to serve society. The partnerships with National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Institute of Technology enable us to offer leadership mentoring programmes that inspire our students to set high goals for themselves and strive for excellence.
