Studying in Singapore
« on: December 24, 2013, 04:00:25 PM »
Hi! Do we have any parents here who have kid/s studying in Singapore? What are the schools there which are comparable to our ADMU and DLSU? Are the fees high or reasonable enough? My children are still in elementary levels but Im already scouting around for schools hahaha ;D My eldest is into arts so I was browsing online for arts schools -  and I chanced upon this school: http://lasalle.edu.sg/Home.aspx.

Can I still reply here? :) hehe. Were living in SG and my daughter is incoming primary one.

"SINGAPORES education system has been ranked fifth in the world, behind Finland, South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan.

The quality of teaching and cultural respect for education were key factors propelling the Republic into the top five, said the report published yesterday by the Pearson Group..."

Got that online. So comparing it to the best schools in world, and on the top 5, i think if you want to enroll your child on any schools here, di ka magkakamali.

For primary level, there are a handful of schools ran by the brothers pero locally, i dont think those schools are even on the list of 'elite' schools here. One school i know its 90sgd per month for PR. La Salle school at less than 3k php a month. astig di ba? :)

Best education is offered to everyone here, rich and poor alike.

If not PR, do private schools accept foreign students and how much?

^ it depends what you mean by private schools. private schools here are generally considered international schools which fees would maybe the whole salary of a parent already ;) . same drill with the Intl Schools in the PH.

are you referring to those la salle schools? i don't think they are considered private schools here but still under the Ministry of Education mainstream schools.  *Singapore Mommies, correct me if Im wrong *

^ Thanks sis, madugong pagiipon pala kasi ang mahal ng tuition. As of now, maliit pa naman anak ko but we're planning to enroll our baby sa Playschool para madevelop yung social skills niya. Nabobored na kasi siya and lagi nalang ipad to the rescue. Bago palang kami dito and di pa namin alam if we'll be staying longer.
