Singapore American School

Thank you for your interest in joining Singapore American School! As part of our World Health Organization (WHO) aligned child protection policy, background checks will be conducted on all successful applicants.

At Singapore American School, we give students possibilities like never before with personalized learning, new course offerings, and passion pathways.
Students at SAS find their true selves rather than letting a system define who they can become and how far they can go. Possibilities don’t make school easier, but they make it different and provide personal awakenings for kids who are looking for more. The direction we take reflects what made us one of the most desirable international schools in the first place.

Experts in their own fields, our teachers are part of what is uniquely SAS—our teachers aspire to be forever memorable as life-defining mentors in our students' academic, extracurricular, and social development. Our teachers are truly our greatest strength.
