Choosing A School In Singapore.

When you’re relocating to a different country with your family, there are a number of different things that need to be organized. The move itself can be stressful enough without the added task of searching for the perfect school for your kid(s) to attend. However, Allied Pickfords is here to de-stress your life in more ways than one – we provide a full moving service from door to door that encompasses everything including packing, shipping, vehicle and pet care, plus more. 
Not only that, but we’re here to offer a few pointers to ensure you decide on a school that’s just right for your children:

1. Ask About Class Sizes
The ratio of students to teachers will differ greatly from school to school and, as you are aware, the less students per class the better. 

2. Location Is Important
Singapore has one of the best public transport systems in the region; schools can usually be easily located and reached via buses or the train. Still, where the campus is located will dictate how much commuting time is involved. While it may not be right around the corner, make sure it’s conveniently located to public transport.

3. Find The Right Fit For Your Child
A very important factor when deciding on a school is whether it fits with your child in terms of not just their personality and learning style, but also that the curriculum that suits their needs as well. 

4. Do Some Research
Perform some searches on Google and read some reviews. Also, talk with friends and work colleagues to get their opinion. However, this advice should only be used as a guide towards a school that’s already matched with your child.

5. What Extracurricular Activities Are Offered?
Activities outside the classroom are a great way for your kids to get to know other students better, and provide a good balance the academic side of things. These will differ between schools, so ask what is on offer.

6. Take A Tour
Walk around and check everything out for yourself. Take note of the facilities available and the overall feel of the place (are the grounds/buildings in good condition?). If you take note of these and apply them to your search, you’ll be well on your way to placing your kids in the right school that suits their needs ideally.
