I am surprised to see the ranking... on what basis is the tier done? cause Schools like Lakeside Primary in T4 where as West Grove in T5 :scratchhead:

Also Nan Hua in T2 :?

but they never specify clearly what kind of criteria is been used or quantify, to measure Tier1 to Tier 6 schools ?

now i still confused ... what distinguish a Tier 1 school from a Tier 2 (example) ?

who rank this - Tier 1 to Tier 6 ?
some private organization or MOE ?

It infuriates me that a private entity can get away with such ranking using official looking jargon. No disclaimers. It is nothing but the private opinion of a company/ group of people .
They use three criterias and that constitutes "holistic" ??

MOE should have strict rules that such ranking should not be put up and if it is there should be a clear disclaimer at the top in a specific font size.

o, btw, this is not a case of sour grapes
My kids schoool is in the Tier 1 , as per their ranking.

As if the mad rush for primere schools is not bad enough as it is, they seem to be instigating it further.
