Haven't hear about that one, unless you are talking about the school that is using the new IB system.
IB Programmes in Singapore

Within Singapore, there has been increased interest in the IB, with eleven schools offering IB programmes today. These include Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), which is one of our publicly-funded schools and which also offers a 6 year integrated programme. Our first specialised pre-tertiary arts school will also be offering the IB Diploma Programme when it opens its doors next year. Among our three privately-funded Singapore schools, ACS (International) already offers the IB while SJI (International) and Hwa Chong International will do so from 2008 and 2009 respectively.
