Welcome To Our Elementary School
In its relatively short history, SJI International Elementary School has established itself as an innovative, forward-thinking and exciting international school environment for young people to begin their learning journeys.
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). Our curriculum is made up of many well-tried and successful components. In Mathematics, we follow the Singapore Mathematics programme, and for Humanities and Science, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Chinese is offered to all as a compulsory subject. We have recently added Spanish as an option for our Upper Elementary Students. In Language Arts, we have combined the best of the English National Curriculum with the American System's components to provide a rich and rigorous learning programme for our students.
Music, Drama and Art are addressed, with a full calendar of music concerts, drama productions and Art Exhibitions. Completing a new Creative Arts Building greatly enhances these areas of our rich curriculum. Sport is strong, with a large and varied selection of teams competing in the Singapore ACSIS leagues. We have a whole school swim team competing at all regional levels.
Much time and planning have been put into the transition programme in Grade 6, and we are delighted to say that most of our students move on to our High School for Grade 7. Increasingly, SJI International is seen as providing an outstanding education as an 'all-through' school for children aged 4 to 18.
As with all schools, getting a real sense of the community from a website is challenging. Suppose you are interested in enrolling your son or daughter at SJI International Elementary School. In that case, your next action should be to visit the school in person and see our wonderful community.
