Singapore American School (SAS) has a legacy of preparing thousands of students for a successful life in university and beyond. To cement their position as an education powerhouse, the school has embarked on a 400 million Singaporean dollars (≈ US$300 million) campus upgrade project that reimagines the role of classrooms and buildings in the learning journey.
The project involves a new elementary school, a new middle school, a fully renovated high school, a new welcome centre and campus square, and a new athletic complex. They will meet the highest levels of sustainability in campus design and human performance. Teachers will receive relevant professional development to support the successful transition into the new facilities and new learning environments.
All of this is the culmination of research and development that took thousands of hours of research, interviews with over 100 college admissions officers, visits to over 100 schools worldwide, consultations with industry leaders and parents, and so forth. Every minute invested was worth it. The goal? Unmatched learning opportunities for students and teachers.
SAS has partnered with world-renowned education architectural firm Fielding International to design the new campus and with local award-winning China Construction Development Co. for construction. Parents and students will see its completion in three stages; beginning on May 29, 2021 and scheduled for completion by fall 2026.

“Our greatest asset as a school is our educators. They are essential in creating engaging and meaningful learning experiences for each and every student who comes to SAS. Our campus upgrade project represents one more way we are investing in our educators. This project will create learning environments with endless possibilities for our students and educators.”
Their qualifications and character are exemplary — 82% hold master’s degrees or doctorates. The school invests heavily in professional development and regularly sends teachers across the globe to share best practices with other leading educational institutions.
The SAS journey starts in preschool, ends in high school and culminates in a life lived with compassion, honesty, fairness, responsibility, and respect. Young children evolve from curious learners to seniors who have won places at over 675 colleges and universities around the world. Along the way, they join over 40 Advanced Placement and Advanced Topic classes. They discover passions in over 250 clubs, service organisations, and after-school activities offered from K-12.
Whether in class, field or hall, every day at SAS is filled with wonder, discovery, creativity, and excitement. Experienced and enthusiastic educators make this possible.
