SJI International

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

Does anyone have any insights on SJI International in terms of the school culture and the standard of teaching? Many thanks.

I have several friends whose kids are in SJII. All of the mums are happy with the school and the kids are enjoying themselves there.

Thanks jtoh.. Do you know if the kids managed to get good IB grades and secure places in good universities? Cheers.

Hi kiasu-mom, my friends' kids are all in Year 2 so can't comment on Uni admission. I thought SJII only opened its doors to Singaporeans only a few years ago? Would the first lot have finished IB already?

Hmm... understand that they have local students who had completed IB. Will probably attend one of the open houses to find out more. Thanks for your input.

Hi Kiasu-mom, if you google around you will find St Joseph International discussed in several expat forums... try these words (expat singapore st joseph). The opinions expressed there are pretty frank.

Anyone knows what kind of O level results can get one into their year 11-12 IB programme?

see SJI International website "admissions section". Says L1R5 excluding bonus points should be 12.
