Mary’s, one of the top boarding schools in the USA, is opening its doors in Johor Bahru (Malaysia) in
2018. As our spectacular site opens in Forest City, JB, we bring 150 years of
expertise in education from our home in Minnesota, USA. Since the middle of the
19th century, our school has been leading the way amongst American boarding
schools, combining an attention to academic rigour and discipline with
innovative approaches to learning that give students an outstanding preparation
for higher education and working life in the 21st-century world.
SSM-Forest City will offer an American-style educational program starting with its youngest students and culminate in a variety of High School offerings in Advanced Placement (AP). School work will allow for not only formal teacher-based instruction, but also guided independent exploration of knowledge (i.e., information gathering, analysis, and synthesis), and regular collaborative work. A rigorous academic program featuring a particular focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) will be complemented by robust offerings in arts and athletics.
The school campus in Forest City will offer a diverse array of facilities to support academic, athletic and artistic pursuits. The Forest City campus will also feature boarding for Middle and High School students. Graduates of SSM-FC will join a worldwide network of more than 6,000 Shattuck-St. Mary’s alumni.
SSM-FC will be catering to children from Pre-K to grade 12. The school has residential facilities from middle school onwards.
