School of Science and Technology, Singapore

School of Science and Technology, Singapore



The School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST) offers a distinctive 4-year secondary programme for university-bound students who want a solid academic foundation, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) and immersion in real world applications. SST Students will be nurtured to become:

  • Life-long Learners of Character – individuals imbued with intellectual curiosity and humility, and intrinsic motivation to continue to learn and grow whilst anchored in ethical values;
  • Creative Thinkers and Innovators – inventive minds with the confidence and courage to seize opportunities for the benefit of society;
  • Collaborative and Independent Problem Solvers – individuals who are self-directed, yet value others’ contributions as they recognise the inextricable interdependence of humanity
  • Dynamic Leaders In Service of Humanity– movers and shakers who challenge the status quo in service of humanity
  • Active Local and Global Citizens – stewards of their community who bridge cultures, beliefs and international borders to create a better world

SST believes that the 5 goals of SST can be achieved through the use of the Applied Learning (AL) approach in delivering its curriculum.  AL in SST is learner-centered, active and relevant, process-focused, integrated, authentic and community-focused. 4 key curriculum organisers serve to bridge disciplines in a shift from traditional focus on discrete curriculum areas, as students focus on learning and applying cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge to solve a problem; plan and implement a project; or simply demonstrate their understanding of academic concepts and principles in real-world applications. The curriculum organisers are:

  • 21st Century Competencies
  • Information & Communications Technology (ICT)
  • Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  • Interdisciplinary Research Studies

The school has a coherent affective, character and leadership programme which serves to equip students with the skills and competencies crucial for success in the 21st Century and nurture the values-driven and community-responsible person and leader.  This concurrent emphasis on non-academic curricular ensures the cultivation of invaluable life skills and work competencies such as resilience, responsible risk-taking, innovation and entrepreneurial mindset, effective teamwork and communication, and dynamic leadership.

SST leverages Information Communication Technology (ICT) to enhance the learning environment and provide the extended learning resources and networks that the digital natives have come to expect. As a Future School, SST aims to be a forerunner in using ICT-enabled pedagogies that foster critical and creative thinking and nurture collaborative skills and mindsets.

SST’s strong partnerships with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) and leading industry players such as 3M, Apple Inc and DSO National Laboratories, expose students to varied and enriching learning opportunities.

The core values of Forging Excellence, Building an Empowered Community and Expanding Learning Networks guide the school in its mission to nurture passionate innovators who improve society through hands-on applications of science and technology.  With the strong support from all key stakeholders, SST will strive towards becoming global leader in transforming learning.
