Default Local Schools in Singapore

Hi - Has anyone got any advice about schools please? We are planning to relocate to Singapore at the end of the year (with work) and are thinking about sending our 8 & 6 year old children to a local school.

Any information regarding which schools may be most appropriate would be very much welcomed!

Thanks

There are hordes of International Schools, and you will be spoilt for choices.

Singapore has been priding itself as a center of learning for the region, and an amazingly large number of expats send their kids to study in this clean and excellent country

Google for info.

Local schools have a graded enrollment - and have preferance for locals, and distance of residence from school etc.

Ministry of Education, Singapore

If you have specific questions in mind, drop me a note

Hi Tennis Queen,

Have you enrolled your kids in a school yet? If you haven't, the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results were out a few weeks back so you might want to check out how the schools fared before you make a decision. The neighbourhood schools did quite well actually, so you might want to consider them, since they're much cheaper anyway. A link to some of the schools that produced top students.

Oh, and in case you haven't heard, there's been quite a significant hike in school fees for PRs and non-citizens. Something you might want to examine in further detail. Anyway here's the report.
