Anglo Chinese School (Independent)

The Anglo Chinese School  is a Methodist secondary school in Singapore. It is descended from a school established in 1886 by Rev William Fitzjames Oldham at 70 Amoy Street, Singapore, and is one of a group of educational institutions collectively known as the Anglo-Chinese School. In recognition of its independent status, the school, previously Anglo-Chinese Secondary School (ACSS), was renamed ACS (Independent) in 1988. It moved to its current Dover Road campus in 1992. Further extension work began in 2005 and the school campus now consists of some 12 hectares of land, classrooms and laboratories, a boarding school and sporting facilities.The school extension cost SGD 58 million, most of which was subsidised by the Ministry of Education. The remainder (roughly SGD 12 million) was financed through fundraisers.
In October 2009, it was announced that ACS (Independent) had been awarded the Singapore Quality Award (SQA).
The school offers two main educational routes - the Express Stream and the Integrated Programme. The Express Stream is a four-year course leading to GCE 'Ordinary' Level Examinations, while the Integrated Programme is a six-year course culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma. ACS(I) was recognized as an IB World School in 2005.
ACS(I) has won The Straits Times' 'Top School in Sports (Boys)' award 14 times, starting with the first award in 1996 and winning thereafter every year until 2010, with the exception of 1999. The school has about 100 CCAs.
