I've been using the Singapore series at my math center in Boston.
For grades 1 to 6, you should order Primary Mathematics, US Edition.
For extra word problem practice, I would recommend Primary Mathematics
Challenging Word Problems, US Edition.
The series, New Elementary Mathematics, covers math concepts from grades 7 to 10
(algebra II and some trig). I've only used books 1 and 2 but found the material
to be very challenging for middle school students.
I think the primary series for elementary grades is particularlybut beneficial
because it provides a strong foundation in number sense and problem solving that
many students need. For high school students, I prefer some (certainly not all)
US textbook series.
I hope that helps.
