Montfort Junior School

"A montfortian. A man for others"

About MJS


Montfort Junior, established in 1916, is a Government Aided School of the Montfort Brothers of St Gabriel under the Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore.  As a Catholic school, we espouse the Universal Gospel Values and are committed to providing an inclusive environment for all our boys regardless of faith and background.

 

We also believe that there is a place for an all-boys education, giving them appropriate structure and discipline, and the space to grow and discover their leadership and talents.


School History


In 1916, Father Laurent, Parish Priest of Serangoon started Holy Innocents’ English school in a two-storeyed building.  The school flourished and in 1936, the Brothers of St Gabriel were approached to take over the management of the school.

In 1959, the school was renamed Montfort School, in honour of St Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort, the priest whose efforts to educate youths were carried on by the Brothers of St Gabriel.

In 1974, the primary section was split from the main school and became Montfort Junior School.  Montfort Secondary school shifted to its present premises in 1992.

Boy-Centric Teaching, Maker Education


 
Research has established that that boys and girls learn differently and based on research, Montfort Schools have designed our curricula and pedagogies to leverage on the natural dispositions of our learners. Our Boy-Centric approach encourages our students to be better engaged in their everyday learning. As part of our Boy Centric approach, the school has also put in place an established Computational Thinking and Maker Education program to help prepare our students to be future ready.
