You haven’t given enough information for me to give you a helpful answer. What are their ages? Which area of Singapore do you live? Would you prefer an IB, A level, or AP/honors curriculum?

You need min 25k for most International Schools and and more like 35k for the better ones.

ICS, OFS, Chats, GIIS, Nexus should be in that category. Canadian and Aussie probably too. Stamford American school. You can't afford the betters on though I think (SAS, Tanglin).

Watch out for the "for profit" schools (OFS, Chats, GIIS).

You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Yes, the better ones cost upwards of $40k. If I’m not wrong SAS costs somewhere around $60K. It’s also important to note that most International Schools increase their fees as the child gets older, so the $30K you pay when they first enroll may increase to around $40-$45K by the time they graduate.

Avoid GEMS. They are going through some sort of buy out and are crap at the moment (well, they always have been but worse).

GEMS has always been pretty terrible. The only International Schools I confidently recommend are SAS and UWCD. Maybe Stamford American or GESS too.
