I think it really depends on where you stay.
One on west side or one on east side.
Unless you stay in the middle, then may have headache deciding.

Or else just choose the one nearer to your home as they are really almost equal.

In my opinion, DHS and RVHS are very similar in that both are:

1. Govt school (which means affordable school fee)
2. SAP which means strong in bicultural environment to have a balance of western and oriental outlooks (refer to PMs recent address at SNGS anniversary).
3. 6 yrs IP with senior high and no official post O level admission (which means closer attention to the students due to smaller cohort in Year 5 & 6).
4. Co-ed, which some prefer as a mix of ying & yang.

In fact, both are set up at the same time in mid 1950s.
It is good that DHS is in the East and RVHS is in the West so that students who prefer the profile above can choose either one nearer to their house.

I believe RVHS is more competitive. That's what I heard from my friends and their friends. Maybe u can consider CCHS also??? It's quite a good school also.
