Best Primary Schools 2017

2

 
Once again, the annual P1 registration has begun. As usual, MOE has released some statistics on the school vacancies after Phase 1, Phase 2A(1), Phase 2A(2) and the post-registration of Phase 2B. (See PDF of printout.)

In this article, we present our ranking of all the 184 primary schools in Singapore. This ranking is based on the number of places taken up till Phase 2B (inclusive), which we believe is a good proxy for how popular each school is.

In parentheses are the numbers for % balance vacancy, balance vacancy and total vacancy. The schools with less than 20% balance vacancy – i.e. the remaining places for Phase 2C and Phase 3 – are highlighted in bold.
