The success of students is the result of their tireless efforts and support from their teachers, school administration as well as parents and guardians. Even though the world has much improved in the 21st century and made life quality better especially in the field of education, academic success should be balanced with individuality development. This is because a prosperous and developed nation does not solely depend on scholars, but also on those who have noble characteristics.
