Principal's Message

Academic Year 2017 - 2018






Dear SNA Community,

Welcome to 2018! This academic year has seen the introduction of a comprehensive Piaget 12 Year Journey program across all levels with opportunities for students to engage in. Significant learning takes place outside of the classroom, especially within such important skill sets as collaboration, leadership, confidence and creative expression. Please do drop by and see me for further information on any of these exciting programs. Each year many SNA students participate and enter various competitions and organized events supported through these programs that enrich and educate our students in valuable ways.


The program for International Student Asessment (PISA) is a triennial international survey which aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15 year-old students. http://www.oecd.org/pisa/aboutpisa/  

Singapore has finished first across all 4 major areas of global evaluation; Math, Science, Reading and new this year COLLABORATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING. This news clearly demonstrates that the Singapore Curriculum is leading the way in the world and right here in Surabaya at SNA.
