Singapore Amicus International School was originally founded in November, 2014, as a private English school for whoever wished to learn English, with native English-speaking teachers.
SAI School was licensed by the Department of Education branch of the Ministry of Education of Cambodia as an English school on 15th January, 2015. On 22nd April, 2016, SAI School, once again, was licensed by the Ministry of Education, this time as an International School. The International status enabled it to provide full primary curriculum services, according to the needs of the students. SAIS is the first Singapore School in Preah Sihanouk province that has been assigned ratings by the Department of Education, Youth and Sport.
SAI School is Preah Sihanouk province’s leading educational school, and has become a member of the top education providers.
This school was established in January 2015, as a private English school, at the time it was named the British English School. From its earliest days it enjoyed the support of a number of students and parents whose contribution is gratefully acknowledged. Two factors, namely the intent to expand its network, with campuses nationwide and its ability to operate at a profit to ensure its sustainability, led both its board and international partners to conclude that it should be transformed into an International School.

Our courses are mainly designed with the Ministry of Education’s syllabus in mind. Our teachers are approved by an Academic Board which ensures that they are qualified to teach the respective subjects. The Academic Board also ensures the quality of our courses is up to standard. Our school’s Examination Board oversees the development of examination and assessment procedures for our school’s internal examinations.
At SAI School, students will be mentored, tutored and motivated to perform better academically. We have qualified teachers and staff who are capable of delivering quality educational programs as well as providing excellent student services.
Apart from the usual tutorials and practices, our experienced teachers will equip students with the academic skills to excel (like memory skills, organization and analytical skills etc). Our teachers carefully monitor the strengths and weaknesses of each student. They will be advised on the common mistakes and how to develop better academic skills so that they can improve.
