Anyone who is knowledgable can help to share about these few schools that my daughter is considering.

1) Swiss Cottage Secondary
2) Commonwealth Secondary
3) Kranji Secondary
4) Unity Secondary
5) Clementi Town Secondary

Anyone have any idea which is better school and which one is not so good?

Thanks a million!

I would said all of them are good schools. One point to consider is what subjects the schools offer in Sec 3.

From the info I gather, Swiss Cottage expects all its students to do at least 2 Pure Sciences. If your child has no interest in Sciences, she may suffer in Sec 3 and 4.

I prefer schools that offer Triple Sci + one Humanities AND Double Sci + Double Humanities for its top class students. Eg. Clementi Town, Commonwealth Secondary.

Unity Sec only offers triple sci and one Humanities to its top students, which can be risky as you need at least one Humanities subject to get into JC. If you get a C6 for that humanities subject, you have to include it in your O level scoring, which will affect your chance to get into a good JC.

Nothing much on Kranji Secondary from its school website.

You can check out each school website to check what subjects they offer to their Sec 3 students.

Have you consider Bukit Panjang Govt High?
