St Gabriel or Montfort?

One of my cousins from Montfort eventually went to Hwa Chong JC but his brother went to Poly so I suppose the school is pretty good in their curriculum and it also depends on the children who will thrive or not.

- St gabriel has affiliation to CJC, Montfort doesn't.
- St gabriel is band 8 school, Montfort doesn't appear to show any band so their GCE O level result did not make it to any band standing

putting emotion aside, st gabriel has better standing.

Correction. ALL Catholic schools in Singapore are affiliated to CJC. Montfort is a catholic school.

Montfort has a much smaller candidature for NORMAL stream. It would work well for the whole school... whether you are in Express or Normal. DO remember that if your child is in Express you will get Normal stream kids in your CCA activities. With a smaller candidature for Normal stream, it would probably be less stressful for the school to handle. Both Montfort and St Gabriel's are under the same Gabrielite Brothers who run Boys Town. If your kid is in normal stream, you might get some form of help to get into Assumption Pathway in later years. Assumption Pathway is the only mission run ITE. It also has a brand new facility.
