Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School (or AI) is a co-educational, secular, public school. Originally named Ahmad Ibrahim Integrated Secondary School, it was in the Sembawang Hills Estate in Upper Thomson. It was then the second integrated school to be built in Singapore. The school begun functioning in 1963, with both Chinese and English streams. Today, the school is in the satellite town of Yishun and is well-known to be traditionally strong in shooting.
The school is named posthumously after a patriotic Malay statesman, Encik Ahmad Bin Ibrahim, who was the first Minister for Health in independent Singapore. Remembered as a politician in Singapore's history who "garnered the support of all races at a time when communal relations were sensitive and volatile", he also went on to become the Minister for Health and Labour, and the Member of Parliament for the Sembawang ward.
