Cheap Private School

Post by salmanucit » Wed, 06 Jan 2016 3:07 pm

Hi,
Now this is getting difficulty for the foreigners in Singapore because their children are not getting admissions in public schools and each year situation is worsening. Can anyone here let me know about some private schools which are cheaper and could be considered for educating my kids?

I believe that is what they call an oxymoron. Using Cheap and Private School in the same breath. No such animal here. They have a captive audience because most don't do their homework before accepting an overseas position. There are very few not-for-profit schools here and they are usually full a year or two in advance. Good Luck. There have been a few here who have given up their posting because of the lack of schooling facilities (well, there are facilities, but their costs are exorbitant for the average expat.

Local government primary schools, anyway, are hitting $6-800/month for foreign students so there isn't really such a huge window anymore between let's say the current $6-800 (which will increase for sure) and the $2-2200/month of a full fledged IS where any other "private" type organisation can take advantage.
