It will be easier if you can highlight what you want for your kid. Example, any particular CCA your child is interested in, or you want your child to have opportunities to study subjects they like in Sec 3, or opportunity to study with Asians scholars ?

Basically all the schools you listed have their strength and weakness, but they can be considered the better schools in the east.

Hi, I am also looking at these schools for my son who scored 222.
I would think Temasek and Dunman are of a higher standard and the other 3 are quite close. This is based on the school COP and 'O' level performance.

IMO, Temasek Sec, Dunman Sec and Hai Sing in that order. Not sure of Pasir Ris Sec and PR Crest Sec.

Best to refer to the Sec 1 School Posting book for more accurate information. There is also a section in the book (somewhere in front, i think) where MOE indicates which band (Bands 1 - 9) the respective schools are in. MOE does not list schs above band 9 grading.
