ESF is a much better choice. once you send your child there, he is garanteed a place in ESF's primary and secondary schools. ESF follows the IB programme, which is a well round and interesting one to learn. However, Victoria only has a kindergarten and a so-so primary school. Usually, kids who go to Victoria have to worry about getting a place in a good primary school, but you wont have to worry about that if your kid goes to ESF.

ESF kindergarten students are not guaranteed a place in ESF primary schools, this is stated clearly in all official ESF communications. However when I attended a parent tour at one of the ESF kindergartens in January this year, I specifically asked the principal what percentage of the students proceeded to ESF primary schools last year and she said 97%, which is good enough for me. I see no reason why she would purposely give me false information.

ESF kindergarten doesn't guarantee a place in EsF primary.  Children have priority interviews, but there is no guarantee.  I consider Victoria local.

I think there is nothing wrong for a parent to ask which school ppl is preferred with their own grounds. She is not asking some factual information which is well written on the school website.

Victoria Kindergarten's 2011-12 primary allocation is below.  It gave you a better understanding of where the students went.  Some parents may consider these primary schools were not good enough.

By the way, VSA nevers claims to be an international school, and it is not an international school according to Education Bureau's classification.  It is a private school offering IB programmes in a bilingual environment.

I have browsed through the websites already. As I don't have any friends' children studying in these schools I would like to know more on the fact. It seems to me that both schools offer IB program and that they seem to run similar curriculum but getting in esf kinder is more difficult than Vic kinder so I would like to know more from each school before making my decision.

回覆:which would u prefer? Victoria or esf

Of course I could understand that esf has a long established history and reputation than Vic. At the moment although I tend to have my child to study in IS, preferably esf, I don't know how much chance I could get it as the competition is so keen. Also i  want to know what the good sides and pros in esf as i dont really know much about this school  From my previous perception, if Vic is also an IS then it may give me another option to let my child to go for IS. Of course I agree that reading their websites and doing site visits as well as talking to teachers should help, however, neither school would offer open day or site visit until late this year. Therefore I would like to know more from parents as well as teachers.

For through train, no primary would give you a free ticket. Both Vic & ESF would only give you a chance to interview.
In my past experience, my son studied in Vic which also provided IB in K1-2, then he was admitted by RC( Private School run by ESF).
Both schools are suitable to my boy but I chose the one with better English environment. That's it!

I am going to send my girl to IS so I started reading the thread at forum, friends and the websites. From my understanding so far, ppl choose Vic kindy usually targets for local school though Vic primary is an ib school. I think picking esf kindy , or some other international kindy like Kingston , anfield  would truly help you to get a better chance in international primary school. I am still browsing any other good kindy for my younger one.
