About Nexus International School (Singapore)
Nexus International School (Singapore) is an empowering, learning-focused community. We are one big family, striving to create an honest and open community with our learners, parents and peers. We believe that we have something unique and special here, we are proud to be different in the way we work; and how we teach and learn.
We are a private, co-educational international school catering for children aged 3-18. The school enrolled its first learners in July 2011 and caters to over 900 students representing over 50 different nationalities. It is an authorised IB World School, offering both the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
Following eight years of rapid growth at its existing campus, Nexus has moved operations to an iconic purpose-built campus in central Singapore in January 2020. Designed by educators, the new campus offers flexible and innovative learning spaces that support learner agency and enhance the learning experience.
Nexus offers the following curriculum:
- Early Years (PYP) learning includes elements of the Reggio Emilia Approach, which puts the natural development of children at the centre of its philosophy.
- The Primary curriculum (PYP) is taught through inquiry, creating experiential and hands-on learning.
- The Secondary curriculum offered to Years 7-9 is based on an enhanced English National Curriculum that is taught through inquiry, based around ‘Big Ideas’ or concepts. Nexus will be moving to the IB MYP in August 2021 for Year 7 and will roll out until Year 7-9 are following the MYP
- In Years 10 and 11, learners follow a full range of courses preparing them for IGCSE examinations.
- In Years 12 and 13, learners follow the Diploma Programme.
We believe in a holistic, well-rounded education and encourage our learners to fully participate in school life. Learners can choose from over 90 CCAs and also participate in an extensive Singapore ACSIS sports programme. Various opportunities exist for learners to be involved in community service and learner-led initiatives across the school.
