Best Primary Schools 2019

1

 
The annual P1 registration has already 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.

In this article, we present our ranking of all the 185 primary schools in Singapore. This ranking is based on the number of remaining places for Phase 2B, which we believe is still a good proxy for how popular each school is. (In previous years, MOE released more information such as total vacancy, but not this year.)

Highlighted in bold are the primary schools with secondary school affiliations (scroll to the bottom of this article to see the affiliations). Pupils from such primary schools enjoy a certain advantage in the secondary school posting exercise after PSLE. To get an idea, see the cut-off points in the second half of our Secondary School Ranking article.

The following is our ranking of the 185 Singapore primary schools based on Phase 2B remaining places. If a school is not tagged boys or girls, then it is a co-ed school:
