Our schools adapt the Singaporean curriculum for Preschool, Primary and Lower Secondary levels, Cambridge IGCSE for Higher Secondary and the Cambridge International AS/A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) for Pre University.

    Being given the opportunity to share my experiences at Singapore School Manila is a great honour. Having been a student at this school for 13 years, I believe that my biggest takeaway would be how many opportunities are provided to students like myself. The teachers and staff ensure that students take pride in themselves and choose to excel not only in their academic endeavors, but also in terms of personal growth outside of the classroom. I am who I am today because of the lessons I have learned, the opportunities I have taken advantage of, and the friendships I have forged at SSM. I am, and always will be happy to call SSM my home away from home.

    I thought it was going to be difficult for me to make friends in college because I started in SSM at grade 2. I grew familiar with the students, staff, and teachers and haven’t had to introduce myself in a new environment in many years. To my surprise, making friends in college was quite the opposite. People are going to like you for who you are, and SSM taught me to be myself.

    Attending SSM and taking my A-levels was a 180-degree change for me. It gave me an opportunity to test my limits and experience where my abilities can take me. Having supportive teachers and a flexible teaching structure really helped with ensuring adequate preparation for each and every student. Just ask, and help is there! Without this environment, I would not be who I am today.

    I thought transitioning into an international environment would be challenging, but then I realized how similar it was to studying at Singapore School Manila. The Cambridge A Level Programme definitely gave me a competitive edge here in San Francisco; It had also trained me both mentally and emotionally for university and life itself. SSM helped me break through barriers by pushing me to always be at my best. I achieved this through the countless opportunities, great exposure to the world outside of the blue walls, and five years of endless trust and support. No words can express my heartfelt gratitude to my SSM family for transforming me into an individual ready for the real world.

    Singapore School Manila is a school filled with opportunities for all types of people. It is the perfect environment for anyone to experiment with new things in life and to discover one’s self. Singapore School Manila gave me the opportunity to be ahead of what my course required and taught me the skills I needed to gain a competitive advantage compared to others. I can never regret taking my education at SSM, it will always be a home of acceptance and integrity.
