Singapore is one of the wealthiest countries in the world (in per capita terms) and boasts the living standards of a first world country. Its success is unique as it is a small city state, but is yet able to punch way above its weight as a prosperous nation that affords its countrymen one of the highest standards of living in the world.
The reason behind Singapore’s success is the industriousness of its people and the fact that they are a major global trading hub. Add to it the fact that being a multi-ethnic nation, it is able to function very well as a global trading and commerce hotspot. It is for this reason that people from around the world come to live and work in Singapore.
The fact that Singapore has many world class schools and universities is also one of the reasons that expats with families don’t think twice about coming to live in Singapore. Let’s take a look at what some of the best international schools in Singapore offer.
