Singapore American School
SAS enjoys a reputation of innovation and excellence in education and continually seeks to improve on the foundation that has been built. Three strategic pillars guide the vision for the future of SAS:
· A Culture of Excellence
· A Culture of Extraordinary Care
· A Culture of Possibilities
Together, these three pillars provide an environment where engaged students learn to think critically and develop the skills necessary to succeed throughout their lives.
There are 398 full-time faculty and over 82 percent have earned master’s degrees or PhDs. The school invests heavily in professional development and continually sends teachers across the globe to discover innovative ideas and best practices from influential educational institutions.
SAS has the largest Advanced Placement (AP) program outside the United States and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in the US. SAS students consistently rank higher on academic achievement tests than their peers in US school systems.
SAS encourages students to find joy in the pursuit of excellence as they discover their interests and passions. Students enjoy a variety of possibilities to explore including competitive athletics, fine arts classes, and after-school clubs.
The campus includes three distinct divisions: elementary school (preschool through grade five), middle school (grades six through eight), and high school (grades nine through twelve). A separate and purpose-built early learning center (ELC) provides a special learning environment for preschool and pre-kindergarten (age three and four) students.
State-of-the-art facilities reside on a beautiful 36-acre campus. Students have access to advanced music recording, video production, robotics, digital composition, and photography technology to assist them in their pursuit of passion. Open airy walkways, tropical courtyards, and a natural rainforest offer students the prime environment for developing life-long learning skills.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
Centrally located in Marina Bay, guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore are surrounded by beauty. The hotel features luxury accommodations, a 4,200-piece art collection, and a Club Lounge with sweeping views of Singapore. Here, indulgence is found in Cantonese cuisine at the Michelin-starred Summer Pavilion, culinary Asian delicacies at Colony, storied tipples at Republic, and treatments at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, one of the first La Mer hotel partner spas in Asia Pacific.
The hotel houses one of the largest contemporary art collections in Southeast Asia, including works by David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Dale Chihuly, Frank Stella, and Zhu Wei. 90% of the 4,200 art pieces were specially commissioned for the hotel, while approximately 350 of them are museum-quality art pieces.
Embracing the philosophy of Feng Shui, our luxury hotel welcomes guests with an auspicious balance of energy. Over 10,000 square meters of chromafusion glass with a mother-of-pearl filter are used in the internal glass paneling, coupled with light wood to create a light and spacious environment to enliven the senses. Other Feng Shui elements are detailed through auspicious gold ‘metal’ rail trimmings suspended in Colony, ‘wind’ coming in through the large main doors symbolizes luck, ‘water’ from the mother-of-pearl panes and indoor water feature signifies wealth, and the impressive Cornucopia art sculpture in the main lobby represents ‘fire’ and vitality. The iconic octagonal bathroom windows in each guest room afford panoramic views while alluding to the auspicious number “8.”
