Welcome Message

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Suzhou Singapore International School. Since 1996, SSIS has been providing an excellent standard of international education to the children of expatriate families. From our humble beginnings, with 27 students on a small campus, we have grown to become an IB World School, with 1,100 students, supported by 160 teachers, in a world-class facility.

As you read through this Handbook, please remember that what is contained between the covers is a set of guidelines and principles by which we operate as a school.

Parents who become part of the SSIS family quickly learn that with the school’s outstanding staff of dedicated professionals, students excel in a culturally rich international environment for entrance into higher education, life and service in a rapidly changing world community.

Students and parents are urged to become familiar with SSIS’s philosophy, goals and objectives found in this Handbook. The expectations are high, and SSIS students upon graduation are being accepted into some of the best worldwide universities.

SSIS welcomes parental suggestions, participation and support in many of our school activities. In addition to strong academic achievement, students are encouraged to learn personal and community responsibility as well as appreciation of cultural diversity in a global society. Your involvement is appreciated.

Head of School
