School ranking and questions...


1. May I know where to check primary academic school ranking beyond 2010? 

2. Where to check the full list of primary schools in Singapore as well as their ninch areas?

3. Any website to check the new schools plan to open coming years? And possible locations?

Dear catherineq,

There are no official Academic ranking of Primary schools, because MOE does not release that information and while it does not explicitly forbid individual schools from releasing that information, many schools don't, especially those whose PSLE performances are below national averages.

Any academic ranking you find will be highly subjective, and probably inaccurate.  The one we have on is probably accurate only for the top 30 schools, after which there is really no basis for comparison.  Some other rankings try to use awards attained by schools as a basis, but winning awards is no guarantee of PSLE success either.

The only way to effectively rank Primary schools will be to compare the % of quality passes (A and A*) attained by their PSLE cohorts.  Only MOE has the complete set of data to do this, but it is not telling.  Yet by establishing the Gifted Program only in certain schools, through a national test that selects the top 1% of each cohort, MOE has unwittingly skewed parents perceptions that these "GEP schools" are the top schools in Singapore.  So if you want to know which are the best schools, just go get a list of all the schools that host the GEP.

In our opinion, academic ranking is only one of the many measures that parents use when deciding on schools for their children.  Most parents are rational, and base their decision on distance to the school, for the obvious reason of logistical convenience.

If you are looking for an academic ranking of schools because you want to select the top schools for consideration, just a word of caution.  You should think about the level of stress that you may be putting yourself and your child through.  It is difficult for your child to excel in these "top" schools where almost every child is well supported and pushed to excel by both parents and the school.  Not every child can blossom under such environments.

MOE does provide a very comprehensive school information service that lists details of every school.  That should be your starting point in evaluating the schools you select.

I am in the stressful position of facing phase 3 and monitoring situation. 

Do you know how balloting works with twins.? I am definite that I will need to ballot but not sure if my twin boys will be treated as one number or would have to be lucky twice for them to be in same school. On this matter do you know if distance is an issue for the pahse 3 balloting

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
