ONCE A LASALLIAN

Our SJI International alumni community is strong and remains connected globally.

Welcome To Our Elementary School

We are a Lasallian school and are proud of the Catholic ethos and heritage that can be traced back to 1852 when St Joseph's Institution was founded by the De La Salle Brothers in Singapore.

Set in a beautiful green and central location on Thomson Rd, the Elementary School, caters for children from Prep 1 (Aged 4) to Grade 6 (Aged 12). The programmes within our curriculum offer best practice and are recognised world wide for their high quality and effectiveness. In Mathematics, students use the Singapore Mathematics programme in order to build strong basic knowledge and skills, as well as developing problem solving and higher order thinking. In Language Arts, teaching and learning are based on the Common Core State Standards. In reading this starts with phonemic awareness and phonics and moves on to more complex word study and comprehension. Students also learn the author's craft as they experience writing in a range of genres.  

The International Primary Curriculum and International Middle Years Curriculum both offer challenging units of study through which students learn key Science and Humanities concepts and knowledge. These units are inquiry and research based with many opportunities for experiential learning. Chinese is offered to all as a compulsory subject at varying levels of difficulty. We have recently added Spanish as an option for our Upper Elementary Students. The curriculum above is also offered through our Bilingual Programme, currently available to students in Lower Elementary. This programme offers students the opportunity to learn through both Mandarin and English and to have a deep understanding of each culture and their way of thinking.

Specialist teaching is offered by trained staff in the areas of Music, Art, Physical Education and Religious and Moral Education (RME). This holistic approach allows our students to find their strengths and passions and develop a sense of self-efficacy. In addition to music lessons and grade level performances, there are additional musical groups that students can join through the CCA programme. Yearly Art Exhibitions showcase work across the school and a highlight of our PE programmes are Sports Days and Swim Galas. Students are also actively involved in the Singapore ACSIS  sports leagues where our school is strongly represented. Developing a sense of resilience and well-being is paramount to our students' success, as is the support given to our Grade 6 students who nearly all transition to the High School for Grade 7. As a result, SJI International is seen as providing an outstanding education as an 'all-through' school for children aged 4 to 18.

At SJI International Elementary School students, teachers and parents have created a close-knit and welcoming community. Should you want to join us and enrol your child at the school, please come and visit our wonderful community in person.
