In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools Mini Guide 2018 -

All our chil­dren have at­tended or cur­rently at­tend SMMIS. Now only the younger three kids are at the school. The school has a strong cur­ricu­lum, in­di­vid­u­alised at­ten­tion, strong lan­guage training (in He­brew and Chi­nese), and a solid swim­ming pro­gramme. How­ever, what makes the school unique for us is the warmth of the teach­ers, fac­ulty and ad­min­is­tra­tors. The chil­dren are greeted each day with hugs by their teach­ers, and as par­ents we see the con­fi­dence that the chil­dren have de­vel­oped be­cause of the love that all the fac­ulty show to­wards the stu­dents. One of our chil­dren has speech dys­praxia, and SMMIS pro­vided him with daily on- site speech ther­apy and at­ten­tion to help him over­come this dif­fi­culty. The ded­i­ca­tion of the staff is truly ex­cep­tional.

Our fam­ily has lived in Sin­ga­pore for 20 years, and we al­ways knew of the school. In fact, at var­i­ous times my wife Christina and I were both on the Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mit­tee of the Jewish Wel­fare Board. The school was orig­i­nally an out­growth of the nascent Jewish com­mu­nity in Sin­ga­pore. The school started out as the nurs­ery school and kinder­garten of the Jewish com­mu­nity and then grew to be­come a fully-fledged in­ter­na­tional school in Sin­ga­pore. It re­mains true to its found­ing prin­ci­ples of in­still­ing Jewish learn­ing and it has a strong moral code. We be­lieve that SMMIS is ideal for a fam­ily that seeks a warm, wel­com­ing, close- knit and small school.
