Hwa Chong International and ACS (Independent)

Postby RichardRjLiew » Sat, 24 Oct 2009 9:46 am

I'm Malaysian and I plan to take up IB in either Hwa Chong International School or ACS (Independent) School in Singapore.

After reading several post created about comparing International School and local independent school in this forum, I got a few points noted down.

I know it's harder for foreigners to enter a local school as local school tend to take local students *which is actually very logic*.

For all I've known, ACS (I) became the top 3 IB School in the world because of the school's outstanding performance in their recent IB results. But after reading more, people tend to share that many ACS (I) students wear our easily because of teachers pushing them to do well for their IB exams.

I've searched the internet and forums about the two schools but I only can find many things about ACS (I). I know Hwa Chong International School was only founded in 2005, but is the school really quiet? I find it unfair to compare the two schools.

The only thing I've found about Hwa Chong International is that the school is affiliated with Hwa Chong Institution which is actually very prestigious is Singapore.

So, I'm here seeking your opinion.

What do you think about ACS(I) and Hwa Chong International?

PS: I hope this is not a repeated topic :(

There's plenty here on almost all International Schools. Maybe try searching before asking for repeat comments. But haven't you made up your mind, already?

They are of completely different league. So if you are able to get into ACS Independent, forget about Hwa Chong International.

Hwa Chong International's standard is no where near its affiliated school, Hwa Chong Institution.
