Will my child be able to go back to the mainstream education system?
HFSE curriculum was developed to prepare students to sit for the AEIS (Admission Exam for International Students). This initiative was implemented in order to provide more options for global migrant families living in Singapore.
If we go to other or our home country, will my child’s education be credited?
Based on our experience, we have students who have migrated to other countries (i.e. New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Philippines) and the normal enrolment procedure is for the student to pass the entry examination offered by the prospective school of their choice in the respective country they are migrating to. HFSE will provide all necessary documents including Transcript of Records (TOR), Report Cards, Certificate of Attendance, Certificate of Completion and Good Moral Character. In the event that additional documentation or testimonials are required by the prospective schools, HFSE will provide assistance with that as well.

How will the outcome of the Assessment affect my child’s admissions application with HFSE?
For student applicants following the Year of Birth requirement per Academic Year, the outcome for each subject will be used to check the competency level of the child. Teachers may use the assessment outcome to track the child’s progress while studying in HFSE.
For student’s accelerated application – (e.g. YOB is 2013, eligible only for P1 in AY2020; but parents want to try P2 level for the child)
HFSE’s Academic Board will require at least 65% passing mark per subject to be accepted for the higher level application of the parents.
