  • Overview

MGS was founded on 26 July 1887 by Sophia Blackmore, an Australian missionary sent by the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church of America. The school started on Short Street. By 1925 the school was overcrowded, which precipitated a move to Mount Sophia, where it remained there until 1992. [1]

MGS (Secondary) became an independent school in January 1989. In 1992, MGS moved to a new site at 11 Blackmore Drive. The road was named after the school's founder at the request of the school. [1]

Methodist Girls' School is a well-known institution in the region with a history of academic and sporting excellence. The school was routinely placed in the top five schools of Singapore in the rankings by the Ministry of Education before the rankings were disabled. In the current ranking system the school consistently places in the Band 1 category, the highest achievable category. [1]

The school has also produced national top scorers in key examinations as well as academic competitions, in both the Primary and Secondary school divisions. [1]
