Melbourne Specialist International School Opens

A very special school for extra special kids

The education of our children is a top priority and Singapore is heaving with options. But families that require specialist support sometimes find themselves wanting more here on the little red dot. Well, wait no more. The Melbourne Specialist International School (MSIS) has just opened its doors, and is offering a remarkable curriculum never before experienced in Singapore.

MSIS was established in collaboration with the pioneering, Port Phillip Specialist School in Melbourne, Australia and its groundbreaking success and popularity has now been exported and made available here through White Lodge Education Group.


So what makes this specialist school so special? MSIS is founded on a very unique curriculum model where a Visual and Performing Arts Programme take centre stage. Through creative expression, children are better able to communicate and learn literacy, numeracy and living skills. Practically speaking, intensive assessments are conducted for every student, aged 3 to 18, and an individualised learning plan is tailored so children can reach the goals in a way that best suits them.


Exceptionally qualified Principal, Ms. Juliet Cooper, has a passion for facilitating learning through dance, drama, music and visual arts, and she has surrounded herself with a highly trained and experienced teaching staff and therapy team. With an Art Therapist, Music Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Therapist, Physiotherapist and Drama Therapist on call, MSIS is qualified to enrich and reinforce positive management of emotions, behaviour and development.


Centrally located at Loewen Gardens near Dempsey, MSIS is not only easily accessible, but able to leverage its location by providing hands on vocational training at The Pantry café canteen and cookery school next door.

Take a tour of the school and witness the inspiring community change movement for yourself.
