Let’s admit, international school education in Singapore is expensive.
Expat parents looking for well-established primary schools that offer premium education at pocket-friendly fees have limited choices. Especially those with more than one child are burdened with exorbitant school fees.
Why are international primary schools in Singapore expensive?
On an average, international primary schools in Singapore cost somewhere in the range of SG$ 18,000 – SG$38,000 per annum. However, for ninety percent of the schools this amount is only indicative of the Annual Tuition Fee on top of which parents have to pay for extracurricular activities that the child pursues at school.
Thus, the total cost of sending the child in an international primary school in Singapore turns out to be hefty for expat parents who have no choice but to select a private international school for their children.
