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.

The AMC (American Mathematics Competition) events are a series of competitions that are held annually across the world. It is a great opportunity to challenge those who are mathematically minded in our student community and for them to experience Mathematics outside the curriculum in a different context.
The annual “Active for Action” event brings our school community together to have a fun run/walk and raise funds for various student service groups in both Elementary and Secondary divisions.
We are so proud of everyone who was a risktaker and auditioned and especially those who made it to the final performances. It takes a lot of courage to get up in front of the whole school, but they all shone and showed the best of themselves.
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.
The SSIS community is honestly the ideal mixture of acceptance, encouragement and quirk. If I were to have learned anything at SSIS, it would be to simply not be ordinary.
I am lucky to be a student at SSIS. Over the years, the school has taught me things beyond just academics. In SSIS, I am offered a variety of extracurricular activities that range from service, and creativity, to activity.
Being a student at SSIS has made me realise the importance of learning and how to be a lifelong learner. This school has made me want to be the best version of myself.
