Singapore is known for its Excellent Education System. I recently moved from Niles, Illinois (I went to Niles North High School ) to Tanjong Pagar, Singapore, and I could not survive at my new school (Anderson Junior College) even though I had a 3.9 GPA back in Illinois ( I have about what is equal to a 2.4 GPA in the US.) Right now they are teaching me about the Binomial Theorem when I just learned about the Pythagorean Theorem.
Offical Languages are Tamil, Hokkien/Cantonese, Malay, and Singaporean Colloquial English/British English
Singapore is the best country I have ever been too (Ive been to Cambodia, Laos, Hong Kong, China, Macau, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand) and it is a country I hope you will truly enjoy it as much as I do.

Despite being a tiny 647km island surrounded by water, and despite all the negativity for its reputation of having too many restrictions, Singapore is actually a stable and safe country with great food and harmonious people.
If you don't care too much about politics, and would like to live in a place where jogging on the street at 4am is actually plausible without you getting mobbed, Singapore is a great choice to consider.
