Relocating to Singapore with teens

Post by chinagirlkim » Wed, 11 Oct 2006 2:54 pm

My family is relocating to Singapore from Beijing. We are originally from America and have been in International School of Beijing for four years. Looking on the internet for school options is over whelming. I have a son grade 10 and daughter grade 9. The family is planning on relocating to Singapore end of Dec. Also, in Beijing we live very close to the school because of sports and school acitivites. Is that preferred in Singapore or is it a non issue. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

We are looking at moving in the opposite direction i.e. from Singapore to Beijing! Currently, our kids are in the Singapore American School in 7th & 9th grade. From researching on the website, it looks like ISB has a pretty similar system except that SAS doesn't offer the IB.

SAS is a great school, wonderful facilities & an amazing selection of courses including a good number of AP courses in high school. Check out their website (google). Our kids will definitely miss SAS!

Another thing to think about is whether there will be vacancies available for your children. Best is to send them an email to check. The school is now apparently at capacity already - 3,700 students in total which is twice the number in ISB, I believe!

How do your kids like ISB? We are going to be checking it out when we visi next week, as well as taking a look at WAB.
