Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan was established on Mac 1990 by Perak Association For Intellectually Disabled as part of the awareness management by The Sitiwan Lions Club and public for the civil responsibility to help the intellectualy disabled people in the Manjung district. Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan was started off with 9 students, a teacher and support staff in a double story house with 3 rooms.

In 1994, Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan enrollment increase to 30 students and 3 teachers. Due to space limitation, we have shifted to another double story house with 5 rooms in 1995. As the school increase to 50 students, the management of Sekolah Semangat Maju Sitiawan have decided to lead by a principal. We manage to buy a school bus thanks to the donation by Canadia Foundation Fund and Hong Leong Foundation Fund in order to solve our student's transportation problem.

In March 2008, we have successfully open the Sheltered Workshop Semangat Maju Ipoh to cater for intellectually disabled adult age 22 years and above.
