Unless your oldest child is going to go to SAS, then you will ignore that loon above who is desperately trying to get free of his lease.

The best thing will be to choose a school for your 12 year old and then think about travel times to school, work etc. You're right, there is plenty to choose from and everyone will have a different opinion about what or where is better.

What school system is she currently in? Where do you think your children will be going to school in the future (if you're not still here)?

I agree totally k1w1 but think you meant the Australian School which is in AMK. Not many SAS families live in Ang Mo Kio, just not near school or town, I afraid.

new member you need to choose a school first, then the place to live.

One thing that i have learned in Singapore is that never trust Singaporeans. You seem to be a loony to me and be respectful, you may be in the same situation in the future.

How about ISS or OFS? Lots of Scandinavian kids there and both good schools.
"Norskskolen" is also at OFS every Friday afternoon if your kid is Norwegian. You dont have to live near the MRT, even without a car. Buses are plentyful and taxis are cheap. How about Duchess crest, Tanglin Park, Trevose Park, Aspen Heights or Leedon Heights? All great for kids. You could also consider east coast, but further from OFS/ISS, depending on where you live.
