SPH LV Class of 2009, Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary
My time at SPH truly made a positive impact on me and among the highlights were the caring teachers and supportive community.
When I was at SPH, I was a delinquent student, to say the least. I never really listened to my teachers and often fell asleep in class. I now realized that even though I did not listen, a lot of teachers paid attention to me and cared for me. SPH is not a place that expels or rejects you, Instead, it is a community that pursues you because they truly care. They invite you back in to restore you. For example, I once asked a rebellious question in the class of Mr. Brian Cox who was the former Head of School and my ethics teacher. Instead of being shunned, he invited me to his office to talk over coffee.
A lot of schools are motivated by achieving high academic results. To them, numbers matter more than people. At SPH, people matter more than the numbers.
