Anglo Chinese School, Sitiawan

The Anglo-Chinese school in Sitiawan has the distinction of being the oldest education institution in the Manjung District of Perak, Malaysia. Together with [ SMJK Nan Hwa] , it consistently ranks among the top schools in the district, producing numerous successful students who continued to pursue education in other parts of the world.

Founded in 1903 by Rev. B.F. Van Dyke as an orphanage, it was subsequently expanded into a fully-fledged school by a succession of missionaries principals. The name Anglo Chinese School was bestowed upon the school by Rev W.E. Horley in 1916, changing the name from the previous Industrial School Sitiawan.

Some of the buildings presently on the school grounds were built prior to World War II, including the present ACS Primary School Hall and the four classrooms attached to it by a corridor. Construction of the Hall was started in 1931 by Rev D.P. Coole and completed in 1938.

During the Japanese Occupation, the school was used to teach the Japanese Language.

When the school was first started there were only four students.

ACS School Song (English Version)

Not so very long ago, Only a hundred years or so, Leuring dauntless hero came, Founded our beloved school, Si-ti-a-wan ACS, Though it then was new in name, But the banner then unfurled, Now it's know througout the world,

"CHORUS:"ACS! ACS!Your country can depend on you!The years we spent in the classroom, Will help to make us brave and true.

ACS! ACS!To do what's right we're not afraid, 'Cause we're proud to be students ofTHE A! C! S!
