Melbourne Specialist International School offers a unique educational opportunity for children in Singapore to adopt a new and innovative method of learning for children from the ages of 3 to 21 years of age. The school offers a strong educational framework set in an environment, which continues to cultivate in the children, a love and excitement for learning. Younger children tend to thrive in a small and nurturing environment with high levels of individual and group interactions.
MSIS provides a Visual and Performing Arts Programme. This is a child-centred approach where teachers use the power of concrete experiences mediated through dance, drama, music and visual arts as a way to immerse our students in deeply engaging learning environment. Melbourne Specialist International School also supports students with a range of services delivered by their therapy team. This includes specially qualified members of staff such as an Art Therapist, Music Therapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist. This is what they believe to be a very powerful way to address the highly individualised needs of their students.

Independent living skills
Direct teaching strategies are used in implementing the program goals for life skills for verbal and visual cues and prompts, adult modelling, peer modelling and small group instruction and discussion during scheduled life skills classes and embedded learning activities. The school recognizes that living skills taught and practiced at school are generalized on campus and in the community using verbal and visual cues and prompts, adult modelling and peer modelling.
