About Us

Behind the name...

The term SAINT is derived from the Latin word “Sanctus” meaning “Holy”. Many might think that SAINT is a religious school but on the contrary, it is not as all staff and students are from diverse religious backgrounds.

The name SAINT was chosen to aspire our students to cultivate the characteristics of a SAINT such as being an excellent role model and being good at teaching people to live lives of goodness, generosity and selflessness. These characteristics are important to empower them to become responsible citizens who will continue to contribute to their communities, workplaces and the nation in the future.

Academic performance is important for many reasons. It can open the door to opportunity and pave the way for future success, both in higher education and professionally; however, we believe a values-based, international education is of equal importance. Our values-driven international education is expressed through core values which are woven into every academic and extracurricular activity at SAINT International School. We live and breathe five values that form the basis of everything we do. They include:

Sharing & Caring

Nurturing an environment that promotes a sense of sharing and caring.


Creating a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops students' social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives.


Conducting ourselves with integrity based on the highest standards of credibility, honesty, and ethical behaviour.


Nurturing students to create unique ideas and innovative solutions in a technology rich environment.


Cultivating and maintaining teamwork and partnerships with students, parents, staff and the community.
