Homes near Prestigious Schools

“We recently moved to be closer to that primary school!”

Some children are likely to have their life paths already charted out for them even before they are born. More often than not, enrolling them into prestigious primary schools sits comfortably at the top of the list. If you are one of those parents with elaborate plans to vie for a slot in a reputable school, you should know that a major factor to take into account is the proximity of the school to your residential address. Basically, if your preferred primary school has more registrants than vacancies, admission priority will be given to those who live closer to the preferred school through a balloting process. According to MOE’s website, Singapore Citizens who are living within 1 km of the school will be given the highest priority. As a result of this strong demand, prices of homes near reputable schools have always been highly competitive.

Here is a list of new projects that are located within 1 km of each school, according to the SchoolFinder tool on the MOE website.

At the end of the day…

There sure are plenty of promising brand new properties coming up that are located within the proximity of these prestigious primary schools in Singapore.

At the end of the day, however, this factor is unfortunately no guarantee that your child will be enrolled in your school of choice. Don’t forget that there are other factors in play, such as other parents belonging to the school alumni, your citizenship (Singapore Citizens get priority over Permanent Residents) and affiliations to religious organisations and associations.

It is hence important to not regard this as the sole factor in your decision, but instead choose a dwelling that you would also love as your home!
