Dr. Chip KimballSuperintendent's Message

Welcome to the Singapore American School community!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to one of the finest educational institutions in the world. As parents, selecting a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Each fall at SAS, we open our doors to over 3,900 students and their families, and we are deeply committed to ensuring that every day, each and every student receives the extraordinary care that is the hallmark of Singapore American School.

Since our founding in 1956, a full decade before Singapore declared its own independence, Singapore American School has been on the leading edge of preparing students for their future.

Sixty years later, the entire community of SAS faculty, instructional assistants, administrators, and operational team continue to join together every day for one single purpose: to support our students in their personal learning journey.

At SAS, it is our mission to provide each student an exemplary American educational experience with an international perspective. Students who attend SAS compete successfully with the best students in the world. In addition, they exhibit strong character, leadership, and resiliency, and show compassion for others. We are committed to ensuring that SAS students not only get a great education, but that their experience with us will change their life!

The Singapore American School vision is…

A World Leader in Education
Cultivating Exceptional Thinkers
Prepared for the Future

As we have continued to progress towards fulfilling our vision, we have come to recognize that to be truly exemplary we need to have an organizational culture that is well defined and deliberate. As such, we have identified three essential cultural components that we call our strategic anchors: a culture of excellence, a culture of extraordinary care, and a culture of possibilities. These anchors will make possible our vision and have created a filter by which we can make every decision, and pursue every activity in the best interest of the students we serve.

We understand that when excellence, extraordinary care, and a culture of possibilities all converge, we create the optimal conditions for our students to truly achieve their potential and become world leaders in any field they choose.

I am truly inspired by the possibilities that lay before our school this year and in the years to come. Whether you are new to Singapore American School or have been a part of our community for some time, please accept my personal invitation to join us as we prepare our students for the future.

Warm regards,
Dr. Chip Kimball, Superintendent
Singapore American School
