School is a money trap. Everything extra must pay more. CCA, sabbatical programmes, even school camps, all added to fees. There is a portion called “ miscellaneous fees” where its literally charging you for nothing. The extra fees and miscellaneous fees are separate payments. The school fees are also ridiculously high for a school with less facilities than a neighbourhood school. They also make you pay for a shitty “student learning portal” which is used like 3 times a year. Most teachers are alright but some are just inflexible and downright horrible. The building in the photo is the main building, where students will be studying in the last 2 years of their learning journey there. Years 1-4 is spent in the annex building, a far less luxurious building that they dont show you on the orientation. All activities organised by the school seems very low-budget despite all the money they take. They arent even trying to help your child or improve their learning progress. This school needs new management and needs to start caring about its student body.

Hwa Chong International School shares its facilities with its parent school, Hwa Chong Institution. The building is quite new, so the whole experience was quite good for the day.
