Now in its thirteenth year, the Operations at SAS article series is intended to promote understanding and support of school policies within our large, diverse parent community.

Published every few weeks in eNews, these articles address a range of topics related to finance and operations at SAS, such as the school’s annual budget, financial reserves, and student demographics. “Big picture” topics are also considered, such as developments in Singapore’s international school market and differences between nonprofit and for-profit schools. Each year’s articles are numbered sequentially, from the 100 series in 2011–12 up to the 1300 series in 2023–24. As of August 2023, the collection includes over 160 separate articles, all archived here for the convenience of the SAS community. We welcome comments, questions, and suggestions for future articles.
