Primary



The SIS Primary curriculum primarily adopts the Singapore system which focuses on the three learning domains; Life Skills, Knowledge Skills and Content based learning which ensures the acquisition of knowledge, values, mastery and competency to enable students to face the challenges of our dynamic world.

General characteristics of the SIS Primary Curriculum

The Curriculum aims to develop the whole child, not just their academic abilities. Students are encouraged to develop their own unique understanding of concepts through a variety of theoretical and practical methods, rather than simply memorizing the textbook explanation. It is 'child-centered': teachers constantly try to assess the individual child’s abilities, prior knowledge and learning progress in order to help them develop their understanding. Assessment is not an aim in itself, but rather a tool used to increase learning (formative) and to assess how much has been learnt (assumptive), hence ‘teaching to the test’ is discouraged.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the Primary School, we expect the students to; be able to seek processes and apply knowledge, be morally upright and understanding and respect cultural differences, be willing to strive and take pride in their work, be independent and confident learners, have a lively curiosity about things and cultivate healthy habits. Think globally / internationally, but be loyal to one’s nationality. Make links across different areas, generate, develop and evaluate ideas. Communicate and present ideas clearly and coherently to specific audiences.  Value working with others through teamwork. As part of the holistic education, the SIS Primary curriculum also provides opportunities for students to excel in Sports and the Arts.

Secondary



The SIS Secondary School Curriculum adopts both the Singaporean and the Cambridge University programme. This programme is for students from the age group of 13 – 16 years old. The students are made familiar with a broad range of experiences. The programme also encourages greater interaction and looks to students making the best bonds and strong friendships for life.

General characteristics of the SIS Secondary Curriculum

The Secondary programme builds on the foundation of the early primary years. It also looks to bringing out each student’s individual interest and liking for the various subject matters. The Syllabus is streamlined without diluting students’ preparedness for higher education. This frees up time for our students to focus on core knowledge and life skills, and to provide greater space for flexibility in carrying out school-based activities in the curriculum. SIS offers a comprehensive Community Service Programme where the students engage in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their Community Service, thereby sustaining high quality service learning. Secondary and JC students are required to perform a fixed number of hours of community service. Most international colleges generally make Community Service an essential part of their entry requirements.
