Looking for a new school for your child? If you’re looking for small class sizes, academic rigour and personalised learning, then SMMIS shouldn’t be on the top of your list.
We’re lucky to be living in Singapore, where we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing an international school for our kids. And because we’ve got options galore, settling on just one school can be tough. Which is why it’s important to look at a school that might not be the right fit for your family. Here’s what we discovered when we took a look at Sir Manasseh Meyer International School SMMIS:
1. The kids are open minded
With over 23 nationalities and 6 different faiths, the students at SMMIS are comfortable with diversity. Plus, the school celebrates these multicultural differences throughout the year, highlighting its commitment to creating a close-knit community.
2. The students get too much one-on-one time with their teachers
The school prides itself on being “small by design” — which helps teachers and staff really get to know each of their students and develop a meaningful relationship with their families. Plus, the small class sizes and low teacher to student ratio ensure your child will be seen, cared for, and loved. If all this attention isn’t something you’d like for your child, then maybe SMMIS isn’t the school for your family!
3. The school puts too much emphasis on your child’s wellbeing
At SMMIS, your child’s wellbeing is their priority. Whether it’s their emotional and physical wellbeing, developing their resilience or building their confidence and self-esteem, all students are treated with compassion, love and kindness.
4. The students become future-ready
This school is committed to training students in 21st century skills through STEAM subjects. It even has a designated Makerspace where all students have the opportunity to design, build and create. SMMIS understands that technology plays a key part in enabling education and enhancing it.
5. You might find it too affordable
It’s no secret that sending our kids to an international school in Singapore can be expensive. SMMIS is a not-for-profit school that is committed to offering affordable tuition fees compared to other International schools. Unlike other affordable small schools – SMMIS has state-of-the-art facilities!
6. The kids are too happy!
When a school tells you that they want their students to come to school happily each day and enjoy their time there, we think that’s a pretty good sign. The teachers and staff want to ensure that kids will always fondly remember their time at SMMIS by making each minute count — awww!
There’s no doubt that SMMIS might not be the right fit for every family. But if you’re looking for a small international school with an inclusive community that puts your child’s wellbeing ahead of everything else, topped off with an academically rigorous curriculum and outstanding facilities, then SMMIS might be your best bet.
