1. Canadian International School (7 Jurong West Street 41)
This was the choice of Manjot Deol, who came from Kuala Lumpur and arrived in Singapore with his teenage kids. Thanks to friends who were already living in Singapore, he got a chance to know a little bit about the schools and visit them to meet and greet with each school's admissions staff. It was a chance to see what the school grounds looked like and to get a feel of the learning atmosphere. His daughter enrolled in the Canadian International School, or CIS, which presented her with plenty of opportunities in terms of academics, extra-curricular activities and leadership training. He also vouches for the quality of other international schools in Singapore, not only for CIS.
2. Chinese International School (60 Dunearn Road)
Susan McKay, mother of three young kids, moved to Singapore in 2007 and enrolled them in the Chinese International School, or CNIS. The main deciding factor why she sent her children to CNIS is because it is the only school in the country with an IB accreditation to have a bilingual (Mandarin and English) education. The school community is very friendly and accommodating - her kids immediately gained friends in a short span of time. For parents who are looking for a bilingual education for their young ones, CNIS comes highly recommended.
3. Australian International School (1 Lorong Chuan)
Australian International School, or AIS, has a good reputation that led Kellie Dark to believe it was the school for young daughters to attend. After leaving Australia for Singapore, it was a wise decision on her part to continue with the Australian curriculum with AIS. It has been a fun experience for her children since they started. Encouraging teachers and friendly students made the transition to the international school an easy one.
4. EtonHouse International School and PreSchool
Sometimes, proximity to home is important when choosing a school. It was one of the reasons why Mary and James Whittred settled for EtonHouse. It was a simple decision for the Australian parents due to EtonHouse's supportive environment and great curriculum. Even though one of their kids has autism, EtonHouse opened their doors wide and accepted their child. Opportunities are in abundance and the school does not restrict themselves to the curriculum.
