Catering to children and youths on the autism spectrum who are able to access the national curriculum at the primary and secondary levels, St. Andrew’s Mission School (SAMS) seeks to prepare our students for life by providing a holistic education that is founded in the mainstream academic curriculum, and enhanced by life and vocational skills training.
To us, every child is treasured. In embracing students with autism, we hope to develop the whole person academically, physically, socially, emotionally and recreationally, while maximising opportunities in sports, arts and other interest areas, so as to ready our students for independent living and work.
At the same time, we understand the importance of developing our students to be integrated members of the community. To that end, we believe in engaging the community, and partnering you, parents in our journey together to impact their learning experience and transform lives.
Our new school has 75 places per cohort, providing for 500 primary and 350 post-primary places at steady state.
The school hours are crafted to balance curriculum needs, while keeping the hours manageable for our students with special needs. For Primary 1 students the school hours will be 7.45 – 1.30 pm.
School fees will be kept affordable.
