Local Schools

Children of LGBTQ parents in Singapore are eligible to enrol in local schools just like all children. The level of subsidies they are provided will depend on their residency status.

The key to selecting the right school will be dependent on a variety of factors. The more important ones are whether the school’s principal has a no discrimination policy and whether the child is comfortable in the school environment. Being open with the school will help the child in developing confidence with regards to their alternative family structure.

While the non-biological partner may not be seen as a legal parent, it is possible to appoint he/she as the child’s guardian in most schools.
