SMMIS is a ‘Foreign System School’ and therefore approval is required from the Ministry of Education (MOE) before a Singaporean student can be enrolled. This applies to any Singaporean student over the age of 6 years old. If your child is a Singaporean citizen and you would like further information, please speak directly to a member of our admissions team.
SMMIS welcomes new applications for students throughout the academic year on a rolling basis. However, where possible, we always recommended students join us at the start of a semester. We have two annual Orientation Mornings (August and January) for new families.
Please note for iGCSE’s, students must be enrolled at the start of Grade 9.
As an EduTrust certified School, SMMIS is able to support families to apply for both SP and LTVP’s for your child. SMMIS will register a child requiring a Student Pass with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Families are then able to complete the application with the ICA.
Please see our refund policy here.
We keep class sizes small to ensure all students are given the attention they need. Up to Grade 2 all classes have a teaching assistant with them at all times. Our classes do not exceed 25 students.
As an international school with community roots, parents have been an integral part of our infrastructure from the very start. We know first hand that parent partnerships - done right - are a school’s greatest asset. In fact, research proves that parental engagement over a students career is the equivalent of adding an extra two or three years to the students education.
In Singapore, we benefit from a unique, highly credentialed and passionate global community of parents unlike any other. At SMMIS, we ensure this vibrant network is put to its best use in support of our students, our teachers and each other. Our PTA is very active and are always looking for additional volunteers. For more information please contact the PTA: email@example.com
Research informs us that attendance directly affects student outcomes. We expect children to be in school for 90% of the school year. We understand that as expats in Singapore there will be occasions when children need to return home for celebrations or otherwise. We request that parents inform the school of such absences, and keep them to a minimum.
All food, textbooks, stationery, and other experiences are included as part of our fee structure. There is an additional cost for local and international field trips.
A freshly made hot, nutritious lunch is provided by the school at no extra cost. Children are requested to bring a kosher/vegetarian snack for break time with them each day.
