The Singapore American School (SAS) was established by expat parents in 1956 to meet the needs of the growing expat community. Today the school is an excellent non-profit American-curriculum school from pre-Kindergarten up to Grade 12. The 36-acre campus makes SAS one of the largest single-campus international schools in the world, with more than 4,000 students from 65 countries, although the majority are American. Despite its large student body, the school retains an excellent teacher-to-student ratio of no more than 22 students per teacher. It is renowned for its excellent academic, sporting and cultural achievements, and students consistently out-perform their peers in the US education system. The school has a good choice of extra-curricular activities on offer, although it is particularly known for its established dance programme.
