  • School Vision

    A Community of Dynamic, Confident and Caring Learners

  • School Mission

    To nurture agile minds and build character through holistic education

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    We aim to seed the skills and dispositions of confident learners and develop caring individuals with a heart for the society. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic education that develops our students into respectful, responsible and resilient individuals. MSS adopts a whole-school positive discipline approach towards developing all Marsilians. "G.R.I.T" meaning Growth, Resourcefulness, Innovation and Tenacity, serves as a guide to shape our daily interactions between teachers and students. Our literacy and numeracy programmes strengthen the foundations of our weaker students and stretch the more able ones. We are also committed to staff professional development to ensure that our staff members are competent in helping students experience success in both the academic and non-academic domains. There is a strong and pervasive ethos of care and our students feel that the school is a safe environment for learning and growth.
