Vision   E.X.C.I.T.E.D (Excellence, Culturally Immersed, TEamwork, Deep Rootedness
Mission   Develop in every child a sense of belonging to Singapore through active participation, values inculcation and heritage and cultural immersion.
National EducationNational Education is an instrumental part of Character and Citizenship Education in Mee Toh School and seeks to nurture rooted and resilient citizens who are able to appreciate our national identity, and play an active role in the well-being, security and defence of the people and nation. National Education messages are also integrated in the curriculum of various subjects, such as Mother Tongue. 
  
Social Studies  In Mee Toh School, the Social Studies curriculum aims to develop students to become informed, concerned and participative citizens who are competent in quality decision-making with an impassioned spirit to contribute responsibly in the world they live in.

We also hope to prepare Mee Tohians to be citizens of tomorrow by helping them to better understand their roots, the interconnectedness of Singapore and the world they live in, appreciate the complexities of the human experience, and develop respect for and positive attitudes towards their own and others’ culture.  

Through inquiry and authentic learning experiences, such as learning journeys, Social Studies helps students to attain relevant knowledge and understandings of these issues, develop critical and reflective thinking skills and appreciate multiple perspectives. Resources, such as videos and current affairs, are also used in class discussions to enable students to be actively engaged in the construc
tion of knowledge and making connections to the content they are learning.
