Victoria School or Catholic High School?

Postby CandyHeart » Thu Nov 24, 2011 9:45 pm

My DS PSLE score is 257. We are torn between Victoria School and Catholic High School. Takes about 1 hour to get to either school. Any advice? Thanks.

I would choose VS because it's IP leading to VJC. :smile:

I was thinking that for 257, can put HCI or NJC as 1st choice too. Safe to apply for IP school - RVH too.

But then, where is the location, I wonder. Why think about a school 1 hr journey away?

OIC, if 257, can also consider ACSI, SJI, RVH if want IP schools.
257 for HCI a bit on the low side, but the child may have HCL score to contribute. :smile:

We are living at Redhill area. To get to either school, it's bus, mrt, bus. Inspite of his score, IP may not be suitable as he is immature and still not be to study independently. Any parents have children in VS or CHS and what do you think of the school?

The good thing about Victoria is that they allow the students to switch to O Level stream, and vice-versa.



Strictly speaking if u want an IP sch, yr nearest choices shld be ACSI follow by RVH.

IF u decide not to go IP, u can choose CHS if u are prepared to travel if not go for BPGHS.

Any of these schs are suitable and prepare yr ds well for pre-uni.

Yes, if you stay at Redhill, I'd suggest ACSI too - no problem getting in.
