List of International Schools in Singapore

There are many international schools in Singapore, reflecting its status as a main expat destination in Asia. While Singapore’s education system has an excellent reputation and strives to constantly improve its public schools, most expat parents prefer to send their children to international schools in Singapore instead. Read on for an extensive, albeit not complete, overview of International Schools in Singapore (in alphabetic order).


Top International Schools In Singapore

Schools with a National Curriculum

Some international schools in Singapore target expat children from a certain country and offer a national curriculum. These are a good choice for children who are due to return to their home country soon. That way, they will easily transition back into the local school system without further difficulties. However, they also make it harder for children to adjust to local culture in Singapore. This is why many of them also offer an International Baccalaureate (IB) system or international degree courses. Some of these international schools in Singapore include:

Australian International School offers both the IB and Australian National Curriculum. Students get to choose between the IB diploma and the Australian Higher School Certificate.

Avondale Grammar School is an independent grammar school which is licensed by the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards in Australia.
