Our Unique Approach to Learning

At SMMIS our educational approach is underpinned by our belief in a Growth Mindset and our desire to inculcate in our students 21st Century skills. Our students are preparing for a high-tech reality that celebrates an entrepreneurial mindset that pushes boundaries and understands the world isn't black and white. We teach our children to be independent learners, resilient, collaborative and risk takers. We celebrate the power of ‘yet’ and understand mistakes are pathways to learning.

Our students are preparing for a high-tech reality that celebrates an entrepreneurial mindset that pushes boundaries and understands the world isn't black and white. Walk our hallways and see a school steeped in design thinking: classrooms rich with documents that outline the thinking process, dedicated places to unpack ideas, displayed and celebrated student ‘works in progress’. We take discovery seriously and actively use learning to shape our decisions and actions.

Our Curriculum

Our bespoke curriculum is underpinned by our unique SMMIS Philosophy of Learning.  As such, we have cultivated a Culture of Thinking and commitment to a Growth Mindset with the principle of healing the world through social action, at our core. SMMIS seeks to inculcate not just the knowledge that your child will need but also the learning skills, habits, values and attitudes that will guide them as they journey towards becoming responsible young men and women with something to give back to our world.

We offer a learning experience for students, delivered by internationally trained staff, that is rigorous, broad and relevant. In Primary School, we blend British National Curriculum Literacy and Singapore Maths with the enquiry based International Primary Curriculum (IPC). In Secondary School, we follow the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) and the Cambridge IGCSE qualifications. Our internationally trained staff emphasises academic rigour across a comprehensive number of teaching subjects, balanced by thoughtful and empathetic instruction that values character-building, emotional growth and creative collaboration.
