Welcome to SSIS

Suzhou Singapore International School

As parents, when looking for the right school for our children, we consider many factors; academic programs, accreditation, reputa- tion, exam results, extra-curricular activities program; all of which are very important factors that are offered by most international and private schools around the globe, however it is that moment when a family contacts our school or steps through our doors for the very first time that they can truly see the environment of trust, see the smiles on the children’s faces, hear the sounds, watch the interactions and feel the happiness and welcome that sets SSIS apart from everyone else.

Attending SSIS means to me an opportunity to broaden my horizons. To have the blessing and opportunity to attend an international school means to learn not only your average school topics, but how to share environments with other cultures and groups of people that you might not be familiar with.
