The School was established by Autism Resource Centre (Singapore) at the invitation of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and started operations in January 2004 with just 41 students. Today, it has more than 1,770 students and is one of the fastest growing and progressive special schools in Singapore.
Pathlight Education Programmes
Who will Benefit from a Pathlight Education?
Children on the autism spectrum, who are assessed to be cognitively able to access mainstream academics in a structured group learning environment (average class size of 10 to 14 students).
Children aged 7 years who are able to access the national curriculum but require additional scaffolding to access the language demands, or a longer runway to familiarise themselves with group learning routines, will be offered our Primary 1 Foundation Programme. Students in this programme will complete Primary 1 & 2 of the national curriculum over 3 years.
For students who are suitable to pursue the PSLE, GCE 'O' and 'N' Level examinations, but face challenges in a typical mainstream school, Pathlight offers a unique blend of academic curriculum and life readiness skills. This blended approach is aimed at maximising the potential of the students.
