Our History

In November 2019, Ministry of Education (MOE) announced that Metta Welfare Association (Metta) would be setting up a second Special Education School, Maitri School to provide education for students with moderate to severe Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD), aged 7-18.

Co-locating with Maitri School, the Maitri Building will serve a continuum of supporting services for graduated students (Alumni).

The final school will be at 20 Pasir Ris St 51, Singapore 518902 and the buildings are slated to be ready by 2028.

Our vision for the students with Autism is to lead an independent and meaningful live and be equipped with skills for daily living, emotional management and regulation as well as vocational skills.
