SJI is an abbreviation for the St Joseph’s International Junior—a public boys’ primary school located at Essex Road, Singapore. The school was founded in 1954 and was named St. Michael’s.
However, fifty-two years later, St. Michael’s School was renamed St. Joseph’s Institution Junior to reflect its shared identity with its Brother School, St. Joseph’s Institution (Independent).
Since its inception, SJI has seen steady improvement in academic excellence of its learners. Because of this, its Choir was awarded SYF Gold status, during the Singapore Youth Festival; while its Tennis team was also crowned National Champions.
To be the best at St. Joseph’s, however, students are required to prepare themselves for core subject areas of English, Mathematics, and Science.
