Welcome to the Singapore American School Intermediate Division. We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with you in what we know will be an incredible year of learning. We are excited to introduce you to our students, teachers, and programs.
We invite you to familiarize yourself with the Intermediate School website. You will find detailed information about all our subjects, curriculum, services and extra-curricular activities. In the Intermediate School, we are committed to providing a safe and developmentally appropriate academic environment that promotes each and every student's social, emotional, and academic progress. We seek to inspire a passion for learning while helping our students to grow into the global leaders of tomorrow.
We believe that we have a unique opportunity within grades 3, 4, and 5. Students are enthusiastic about learning and are eager to develop their critical thinking skills at a time when taking risks can be encouraged. This setting allows students to build life-enduring skills and learn to be:
- Independent and Collaborative
- Problem solvers
- Aware of the importance of making good choices and the natural consequences that follow all decisions
- Aware that each mistake is an optimal learning opportunity
We also want students to understand and embrace the SAS core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, compassion, and fairness. Our teachers and counselors incorporate these values into daily lessons and school life.
Technology is integrated within the Intermediate School as a dynamic tool for learning that optimizes productivity, connectivity, collaboration, and creativity. Students create multimedia projects, documents, spreadsheets, maps, and presentations, and develop an authentic electronic portfolio in the form of a blog that supports reflective growth and learning.
The teachers who implement these programs and lead our classrooms are among the best of any private schools throughout the world. Within Intermediate School, every teacher is part of a professional learning community where they work collaboratively to share best practices in instructional strategies to achieve the best learning results for students they serve. Their passion and dedication to our students is evident in every classroom, every day.
We trust this will be a valuable year at SAS and that you will find the Intermediate School to be a welcoming and exciting place to learn. Once again, we welcome you to Singapore American School!
