NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION. NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY SINGAPORE
The Singapore education system has been referred to as being one of the most successful educational systems in the world. This is, in part, due to the sound educational policies and research in the shaping of curriculum and management practices for schools.
This independent appraisal not only confirmed the high standards in both the academic and non-academic areas, it also puts SIS amongst the top schools in Singapore . To quote the all encompassing line from the executive summary of the appraisers:
The school is indeed comparable to a good school in Singapore in terms of teaching and pupil’s performance.
We are also pleased to note that the quality of teachers, infra-structure and teaching methodologies in the Singapore International School, and the other appraised SIS schools echo those that can be found in some of the top schools in Singapore.
Pupils will be prepared for the internationally recognized IGCSE educational qualification.
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is one of the world’s most popular international qualifications for 14–16 year olds. It develops successful students, giving them excellent preparation for their next steps in education, including progression to A and AS Level study, and equips them with skills for immediate employment. Cambridge IGCSE is recognized by universities and employers worldwide. In recent Cambridge check-point examinations at Primary 6 and Secondary 2 levels, SIS students performed extremely well, prompting Cambridge to make a special remark on the high academic standards of SIS.
