Making a difference together
At SMMIS we are proud to attract a truly international and culturally diverse mix of students hailing from Korea, Japan, China, Brazil, the US, Australia, Israel, Russia and Europe. We are a diverse community that welcomes students of all Jewish denominations and those of other cultures and faiths.
Many faiths, one humanity
SMMIS is committed to promoting interfaith dialogue by learning about similarities with and differences between religious communities in a creative and dynamic way. Children are encouraged to share personal stories and traditions from their own cultures and to learn about each other’s history and celebrations.
Students have the opportunity to study World Religions at SMMIS and the richness of different cultures is explored in an open and respectful environment. Throughout the year we celebrate the national, cultural and religious festivals of different communities in Singapore, including Deepavali and Chinese New Year, which are highlights of the school calendar.
I feel happy in this school, the teachers are kind and my friends are very nice. I have friends from many countries in my class- Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Israelis and Koreans, and we all play and talk together and share some things about our homes and countries and culture.

I love the activities we do in class. I like how we learn by exploring and not reading from the textbook all the time. It is less lecture, more active learning now and I love school.
