Of course, lah! See, the registration fees already over S$2k. ACS(International) also similar, so is HCI(International) ... and whateva other international school lah.
So these International Schools don't participate in S1 posting lah ?
I just look at the MOE book, SJI only got the normal program.
But why SJI wants so much to offer IP program ? If anyhting, isn't Cat High, CHIJ St Nich or SCGS are in better position to offer IP than SJI (as these schools, their COP is higher than SJI) ?
Catholic High's affiliation COP intimidates me, btw.
Anyway, if we see the mean for all these schools, SJI isn't any behind Cat High.
Personally, I fell that SJI is more suited for the IP programme and it is actually applying to become a hybrid - O levels for the lower-abilitied, IP for the higher-abilitied. And that means COP doesn't matter much, as the pupils who score lower aren't included in IP.
Like ACS (I), there is an IP COP, which I predict to be 25+, as its higher than SJI's mean score.
And, HCIS's hair rules seem really unstrict - I see girls with "not permitted in primary school" hair. Their English and Chinese is also really very unsinglish, with the china accent for chinese and the american accent for english. Their books, I saw in our bookshop (They use the same bookshop as high school) is also very different from the IP/normal syllabus.
