International Elementary School

The Beginning of Lifelong Learning

Elementary school at SAS is a place where the foundation of learning takes hold, and where we have the rewarding job of fostering and challenging students to maintain their curiosity and creativity while extending their self-confidence and self-advocacy.

A daily schedule of core subjects in reading language arts, mathematics, world languages, science, and social studies is punctuated by specialist classes in art, music, physical education, swimming, technology, and library use. Experiential learning outside the classroom through field trips and community service inspires students and enriches the curriculum.

From the earliest grades, SAS students are active learners; elementary school students learn to analyze and question across subject areas, and learn to express themselves in writing, presentations, and discussions. They understand where they are in their learning journey, what their learning targets are, and what it will take for them to reach the next steps. Our students take risks and learn from failure in a community of acceptance, preparing them to meet and surmount high academic standards.

We recognize the importance of friendships and working cooperatively, and foster the development of skills that contribute to students’ personal and academic success. Social-emotional programs are integrated into the culture and program of each grade level and SAS counselors are matched with students for three-year cycles to provide personal support and facilitate building emotional competencies.

Tailored for students


Upon learning of our move to Singapore, we began looking into school options for our elementary, middle, and high school children. After significant research, we determined Singapore American School was ideal based on academics, course offerings, facilities, staff, and faculty. Two years later, we can say without hesitation that SAS has exceeded every expectation.
