Art Elective Programme

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

Art Elective Programme

Postby houselizard » Wed Oct 01, 2014 11:00 am

Hi,

I know I am too Kiasu but I have a question.

My DD is keen in Arts, visual arts, not performing arts. I plan to put her in schools that offer AEP. I am considering putting her to RVHS where her brother is in now but RVHS doesn't have AEP. Next option will be either Bukit Panjang High(BPH) or NYGH. However, what if she is selected for BPH or NYGH but rejected for the AEP, what should I do? If this is the case, I would prefer my DD to be in RVHS instead. Can student take AEP while studying in RVHS which doesn't offer AEP? Can AEP be an 'out-of-school' elective?

Tks!

Your DD going S1 next year?

I am not familiar with the 3 schools you are talking about. Why not you just give the three schools a call and ask.

For those school with AEP, ask them if they have DSA AEP, but it is too late for 2014 P6 to 2015 S1 now. You can also ask them what is the criteria (art part) besides the cut of point of the school.

As for RV, call and ask them if they offer Art O Level, some schools without AEP actually do have students selecting Art for O Level and some of their students go to another school to attend classes. So it's important to call and ask the school.

I do know CHIJ Toa Payoh has DSA for their AEP.

That's all I know. Good Luck.

Hi koguma,

Thanks for the link.

I have decided to select school that is near to my place although it doesn't have AEP. However, if she somehow need to go further, then I would hope to select NYG with AEP for her. Anyway, AEP should be the secondary consideration now.

Regards,

Why not try NJC which has a very established AEP programme, and she can start at sec 1 and potentially go up to A levels. For Art.

Hi,

Thanks for the information. I'll discuss with her once the PSLE results are out.

The website doesnt says much about what will be taught in AEP.
Not enough information.

Thanks for the information. I have decided to enroll my DD into RVHS. As for arts, I'll find some arts activities for her instead.

The current RV's principal was the first principal for the Teachers Academy for Arts....I have been wondering if she will add a good art programme for RV.
