Category talk:Secondary schools in Singapore

There appears to be a move tag on the category proposing a move (implying a merge) to Category:High schools and secondary schools in Singapore.
- Oppose move. The descriptions on Category:High schools and secondary schools in Singapore, Category:High schools in Singapore, and Category:Secondary schools in Singapore say that "high schools" (grades 7-12) and "secondary schools" (grades 7-10) are different grade levels. Unless someone familiar with education in Singapore says otherwise, it appears that these (and Category:Junior colleges in Singapore for grades 11-12) are distinct types of schools that can be subdivided with clarity. --Closeapple (talk) 06:02, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
- Oppose. I think there is a difference between "high schools" and "secondary schools" in Singapore.
- Traditionally, students seeking a university education attend "secondary school" from grades 7 to 10, and then a "junior college" (grades 11 and 12). There is now also the option of going to a Centralised Institute (grades 11 to 13). See "From Secondary to Post-Secondary Education" on the Ministry of Education's website.
- More recently, a number of schools now offer "Integrated Programmes", where students take a continuous six-year programme (grades 7 to 12), though some schools offer a four-year programme (grades 9 to 12): see "Integrated Programmes (IPs)" on the Ministry of Education's website. I think these are better designated as "high schools" to differentiate them from secondary schools. — Cheers, JackLee –talk– 07:36, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
