Private Schools are very popular in Singapore. Discover The Best Private Schools in Singapore.
Why choosing a Private School?
Parents generally choose private schools because they offer a strong academic program, create the perfect studying environment with smaller classes, outstanding campuses and offer a wide choice of extra curricular activities such as sports and arts.
Private schools also put more emphasis on specialties like art, music and athletics and many focus on integrating important 21st century skills in their programs.
Private schools statistically perform very well on college or university entrance exams and many schools have a very high rate of students being accepted at the university of their choice.
Study in Singapore
Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial center with a tropical climate and multicultural population. Singapore has four official languages: English, Malay, Mandarin Chinese, and Tamil. English is the common language, and is the language of business, government, and the medium of instruction in schools. There are few places better positioned to become a “smart city” than Singapore. The Smart Nation initiative looks to turn the island into a kind of playground for testing smart solutions to urban issues.
