Macao Sam Yuk Middle School (MSY; Portuguese: Escola Secundária Sam Yuk de Macau; Chinese: 澳門三育中學) is a Seventh-day Adventist school located in Taipa, Macau. It is an international school with students from 25 different countries. The school is divided into the Chinese secondary section and the English primary and secondary section. Upon completion of schooling, students receive a diploma and certificate either in the grammar subjects or in vocational courses.

It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[1][2][3][4]


Macao Sam Yuk Middle School (MSY) is one of 5600 Seventh-day Adventist schools in the world. MSY was first established in 1953 at Rua De Sanches Do Miranda. Initially started as a kindergarten and primary school, MSY developed gradually into a middle school. Due to a shortage of human resources, the school closed in 1967 for 19 years. Then in 1992 it restarted offering traditional grammar education. Finally in 1997 MSY moved to its present location close to the Taipa Sports Complex. This campus consists of 30,000,000 square feet of reclaimed land given by the Macao government. MSY has a Chinese secondary section and will add P5 and P6 for the 2011-2012 school year. The English section includes kindergarten, primary and secondary levels. Students receive diplomas and certificates in traditional grammar subjects or in vocational courses.


The school is divided into the English and Chinese sections.

English Section[edit]

The English section has a kindergarten, primary school and secondary school. Students are taught in English but are required to learn Standard Chinese (putonghua). Unlike the rest of the school, the kindergarten follows the American syllabus. New subjects such as Business and tourism studies have been introduced and made available to Form 4-6 students.

Chinese Section[edit]

The Chinese section follows the grade naming convention of mainland China schools (初中 Junior High School 1-3 and 高中 Senior High School 1-3). The curriculum is taught in Chinese but students are required to learn English as a second language.

Extra-curricular Activities[edit]

There are a variety of interest clubs available to students such as band, drama, calligraphy, cooking and Japanese language classes. Team sports available include badminton, table tennis, volleyball and basketball.

Notable alumni[edit]

  • Isabella Leong, Cantopop singer (dropped out)
