For over 90 years, Ai Tong School has provided quality education to generations of young school children, initially as a Chinese school, progressing to an English school and eventually as one of the most sought after schools in Singapore.

Firstly, great men like Tan Kah Kee and Wee Cho Yaw with the foresight to invest in the future — through educating the young — have turned Ai Tong into one of the leading schools in Singapore. Secondly, the total commitment, dedication, and perseverance of the staff and Principals over the years have pulled the school from mediocrity to its current premier position.
With the perseverance and dedication exhibited by the teachers and principal, combined with the clear focus of the Hokkien Huay Kuan Education Committee Ai Tong will continue to be a beacon in education and continue to groom the future generations.
