``In five years of studying in SCS, I have acquired valuable knowledge and skills that I will need for my plans in the future. SCS nurtures students to be educated and well-mannered. In addition, the school itself is suitable for students to learn better and socialize well. With a high diversity of students and teachers, SCS helps students to be able to interact with people from different backgrounds and to embrace the differences.
The teachers are understanding towards our struggles in both academic and non- academic aspect. They always help and lend out a helping hand to anyone who is falling behind academically.
Overall, the school provides a good environment for students to ace in their education.``

``Learning in SCS is very much comparable as to being in a roller coaster. In other words, there will certainly be ups and downs, which create a sense of joy and fear. However, like the end of a roller coaster ride, once you have completed the journey, you will never regret the experience. Furthermore, as a registered Cambridge International School, SCS has given us the opportunity to participate in IGCSE, AS and A level examination which allow us to constantly challenge our understanding and have an upper edge in the competitive world of education.``

``I have learnt a lot of knowledge during my six years of studying at Surabaya Cambridge School. We use three languages, English, Indonesian and Chinese. In Indonesia, not too many people can speak Chinese well but in SCS, students speak Chinese very well.
It gives me so much joy studying and finishing my secondary education from Surabaya Cambridge School. The teachers are very caring and treat all students fairly. Sometimes the teachers are like friends.
The way teachers teach students is also very good. They not only let us grow in knowledge but also help us apply our learning into real situations. They also give us a lot of encouragement to improve our outlook in life. The teachers sometimes let us study independently. For example, when doing experiments in the laboratory, they will not give any clues or tips to students so that we will find ways to complete the experiment on our own. From the A Level curriculum I also learnt a lot of scientific knowledge which gives me a solid foundation for my study in ECUST.``

``I first choose A-Level to provide me better resources for University admission; however, going through University life, I realize that A-Level does not only bring one to get admitted to various universities, but it also provides a student a better foundation for critical thinking which is essential in University life.``
``Taking A-Level was not an easy choice, but every bit of hardship is worth it. I used A-Level to get admitted to my university, and I realized that it is really accepted in a lot of places. Using my A-Level, I was able to get admitted with Advanced Standing, which means free credits that I do not need to take any more of the courses. I was able to get 24 credits without actually taking the classes, and now I am able to take Year 2 classes. This is one of the many proofs that A-Level is not taken lightly by universities.``

``SCS has been a huge part of my life. I was with SCS for my entire 12 years of the learning phase. It has not only contributed to my intelligence academically but it also shaped my character. I find it so beneficial that I took the A level Cambridge curriculum as it helps me go through University tremendously. It’s easier for me to understand the University subjects as well as finish the tasks well. At the end of the day, A level curriculum was challenging but all in all worth it.``
“I studied at SCS from the Kindergarten to Senior High School. The Cambridge curriculum in this School paves the way for me to be ten steps ahead of all non-Cambridge learners at my University. I also thank SCS for I am able to enter Universitas Surabaya with a Scholarship.”
“Learning in SCS is really a great opportunity for me. The system learning that uses English as my everyday language makes me accustomed to the learning process at the University. The Cambridge curriculum also helps me to have advanced learning at Ciputra University.”
