Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Sir Manasseh Meyer International School, a not-for-profit Jewish school in Singapore. At SMMIS we have a deep moral and ethical foundation and promote a strong sense of community. Your child will receive a first-class education in a small, safe and nurturing environment, with internationally trained staff and state-of-the-art facilities.

We encourage children to appreciate that they are the ‘masters of their own destiny’ and give them the confidence to develop as individuals. Our unique pedagogic ethos is inspired by a Culture of Thinking, and we educate our students to have a Growth Mindset and to understand that life is a journey. They are encouraged to grasp opportunities as they arise and to embrace mistakes as part of the learning journey.

We provide a holistic learning experience to enable each child to grow into fully rounded, socially responsible individuals. We develop students who have a love for lifelong learning, in a school that inspires excellence. We believe that as members of a global community, we each have a role to play in making the world a better place. Based on the Jewish concept ofTikkun Olam, Healing the World, service learning is seen as an integral part of school life.

Reflecting the cultural diversity of Singapore, we are an internationally diverse community that welcomes students from around the globe. We welcome families from all faiths and are in a unique position to promote interfaith dialogue and cultural understanding. Throughout the year we learn about the national, cultural and religious festivals of different communities in Singapore, with over 30 nationalities and 6 faiths, everyone’s identity is celebrated.

The mental health and wellbeing of our students is paramount. The modern world can be challenging for many, our strong pastoral systems, commitment to a Restorative philosophy,  and our Child Protection and Safeguarding policies reflect our commitment to keeping our students safe in education and enabling them to flourish.

We look forward to welcoming you to the SMMIS family!
