This process entails finding a curriculum that caters specifically to your child’s needs and abilities.

How would you rate your child’s performance in school? Are they consistently achieving stellar grades? In the diverse educational landscape of Singapore, secondary schools offer various pathways for post-PSLE streaming. The first option is to opt for the four-year ‘O’ level programme, completing it before venturing into Junior Colleges for ‘A’ levels, Polytechnic for Diplomas or even exploring the IB pathway.

Route 2: Integrated Programme (IP)

The Integrated Programme (IP) is an accelerated curriculum pathway designed to empower the top 10% of each graduating cohort. Furthermore, it offers an extraordinary opportunity for students to bypass their ‘O’ levels and embark directly on their ‘A’ level expedition. During this journey, your child will have the chance to delve deeper into their chosen subjects, immerse themselves in a more rigorous academic environment, and ignite their intellectual curiosity. Consequently, the IP journey enables students to build a robust foundation of knowledge and skills, preparing them for future academic pursuits and personal growth.

The IB programme is predominantly available in international schools, bringing a global perspective to your child’s educational experience.

It is an opportunity for them to develop into well-rounded individuals with a keen understanding of the world. From languages to humanities, sciences, and the arts, the IB curriculum offers a diverse array of subjects. It places great emphasis on cultivating critical thinking, personal reflection, and community involvement. It is a holistic approach to education that prepares your child for a dynamic future.
