St. Joseph vs Catholic High?

I want to know which school would be more suitable for my son. I am stuck between these two schools as they both seem very good. Can you please share your opinions or experiences?

I'm considering between these 2 choices for DS too. Distance matters here.

Known friends from these 2 institutions and they all turn out to be well-mannered and fine gentlemen. I want my son to be exposed more to the Chinese culture, so I'm trying my best to gear him towards that choice. btw in my opinion, the Chinese culture does not only mean speaking the lanaguage. It's the way of life - 待人接物、为人处事的方式.

CHS is a full school. One Principal running both primary and secondary. As they only offer Chinese, hardly any chance to mix with other races unlike SJI.

Yes, Mr LHB runs both the primary and secondary side, busy man indeed. Lucky for him, he has quite a lot of VPs. The Sec side has 2 VPs. And yes, CHS being a SAP school, you will pretty much meet a Chinese face almost 100% of the time (students)... But this SAP culture is an excellent plus point in my opinion.
