Saint Maur International School

Saint Maur International School

Saint Maur International School, established in 1872 by the Infant Jesus Sisters, is the oldest international school in Asia and the third oldest international school in the world. The school, which is co-educational, caters to students of all nationalities and faiths.

The Saint Maur campus houses four main buildings, including an award-winning Fine Arts Center, gymnasium, & academic classrooms.

A short distance from the main gate is a dedicated, state-of-the-art Science Center which opened in 2011. All classrooms and regular recreation areas are on one site, thus avoiding students having to regularly cross roads or leaving one campus to reach another. Our campus has modern and well-maintained facilities which include classrooms, recreation halls, computer labs, a cafeteria, library, tennis courts, and several outdoor play areas. Saint Maur also owns an outdoor sports complex, Peverley Place, which opened in 2003 and is located only a 3 minute walk away from the main buildings.

Saint Maur caters to children of all nationalities and religious denominations, and as such, offers a broad-based religious studies program. In Elementary School, students, through a study of religion, learn about family, friends, and community with the intent of instilling within them a necessary sense of responsibility towards others.

The religious studies program is not intended to convert any student to Catholicism or Christianity, but to deepen a student’s conviction in his or her own belief, as well as to create in our students a deeper understanding and appreciation of people’s differences, religious, as well as cultural, in order to make the world a more peaceful place.
