Overseas Family School?

Postby glin777 » Thu, 11 May 2017 4:20 pm

Hi all

When I was in Singapore 6-7 years ago OFS was based near Orchard and did not have the greatest of reputation on academics etc. Now the company is sending me back to Singapore and I've been told OFS has moved to a brand new campus at Pasir Ris and has improved.

I would appreciate your expert views on whether the school has indeed improved and if it would be a good option now for my two boys (Grades 5 and 2).

Any feedback would be useful, we are aiming to join from August term

thanks in advance

I don't think it has changed.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

The school looks very nice from outside as I pass it on the way to work every day.

Don't know if this helps your situation though.

Its very easy to get to though via Public Transport if you don't have private means though.

My son is currently going to the school in Grade 2. So far we are happy with the academic focus. The facilities in the new campus is also great. As for the transportation, we live in the central area. By school bus it takes only 35 minute for one way commute.
