Sir Manasseh Meyer International School (SMMIS) is a small, all-through international school based on Jewish values. For a small school of just 200 students, it has an impressive state-of-the-art campus  – and a big heart to match. And, while SMMIS still offers an education imbued with Jewish values, tradition, and culture, it has become a truly international school that welcomes many students from all faiths and nationalities.

 SMMIS is made up of over 22 nationalities, and students come from more than six different faiths. There are several reasons why SMMIS could be the right fit for your child: it’s a school that has a modern, well-equipped, and welcoming campus; the familiarity and community feel of a small international school; and ‘affordable’ tuition fees of $23,000.

There’s a close-knit family community that can be hard to replicate at larger campuses across Singapore - and may be considered more important by parents, particularly in the early years/primary. It’s a school where, genuinely, the teachers know every student by name.

SMMIS combines all the familiarity and community feel of a small school with a creative and inquiry-led curriculum, and Jewish values, tradition and culture. Principal Elaine Robinson has fostered a positive school climate that can be seen and felt. She is very popular with parents; “excellent” teachers are frequently described as a strength of the school, as is its friendly and positive environment.
