Ex­cel­lent ac­cred­i­ta­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

CHOOS­ING a school that ticks all the right boxes is essen­tial for a child’s aca­demic jour­ney. While class­room ex­pe­ri­ence and school man­age­ment are im­por­tant things to con­sider, ac­cred­i­ta­tion can also help when de­cid­ing a school. Ac­cred­i­ta­tion sep­a­rates a great school from a sea of good ones.

In­vest­ing in a child’s pri­vate ed­u­ca­tion is ex­pen­sive and fi­nan­cially re­spon­si­ble par­ents need to look at all as­pects of the school.

When it comes to de­liv­er­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, ac­cred­i­ta­tion mat­ters as it as­sures par­ents that the school fol­lows cer­tain stan­dards. Par­ents can be con­fi­dent about the qual­ity of man­age­ment and learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the school.

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion equals qual­ity: Sets bench­mark for qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion:

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion comes in all forms, in­clud­ing vary­ing lev­els of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

For in­stance, the Coun­cil of In­ter­na­tional Schools (CIS) is an es­tab­lished ac­cred­i­tor com­mit­ted to as­sur­ing high-qual­ity in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion in schools. Nexus is no stranger to the CIS ac­cred­i­ta­tion and chose CIS be­cause it is a well-re­spected ac­cred­it­ing body.

CIS looks at all as­pects of the school such as man­age­ment, struc­ture, pol­icy, cur­ricu­lum, health and safety.

It is a com­pre­hen­sive set of stan­dards that schools have to meet and gives va­lid­ity to the work good schools do.

Im­proves class­room ex­pe­ri­ence for the child:

Ex­pe­ri­ence is one of many ad­van­tages of school ac­cred­i­ta­tion and that means keep­ing abreast of ed­u­ca­tional re­search on best prac­tices. This ap­plies to the ac­cred­i­ta­tion by the Ap­ple Dis­tin­guished School.

Nexus em­bed­ded tech­nol­ogy within its cur­ricu­lum and over time, de­vel­oped a so­phis­ti­cated use.

It con­tin­u­ally in­vests in de­vel­op­ing the teach­ers’ un­der­stand­ing of how tech­nol­ogy can trans­form learn­ing, which is cut­ting-edge and ahead of the curve.

Bet­ter teach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence:

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion also re­flects on the way teach­ers de­velop the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Be­ing ac­cred­ited with In­ter­na­tional Pri­mary Cur­ricu­lum (IPC) helps Nexus to em­pha­sise learn­ing as the cen­tral fo­cus of the school.

Nexus in­vests in its teacher and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment. Teach­ers are en­gaged in the con­tin­ual re­flec­tion of their ped­a­gog­i­cal prac­tice and that means that all that Nexus does is per­form in a thought­ful way.

Cre­ates a well-rounded learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence:

Ac­cred­i­ta­tion also al­lows the school to as­sess the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in a 360° per­spec­tive.

It am­pli­fies the need for schools to pro­vide a well-rounded ed­u­ca­tion and pro­duce an in­no­va­tive method of teach­ing.

There is a push around in­di­vid­ual stu­dent progress and per­son­alised learn­ing in Nexus and this goes across its IPC, In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate (IB) and CIS pro­grammes.

School ac­cred­i­ta­tion pro­vides var­i­ous bench­marks the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion that a school sup­ports. When a school meets qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion stan­dards and pro­vides a valu­able class­room ex­pe­ri­ence, the one that ben­e­fits the most from the ac­cred­i­ta­tion is the child’s ed­u­ca­tion.

Nexus In­ter­na­tional School was es­tab­lished in 2008 as a com­mit­ment to shape an in­ter­na­tional-minded learn­ing com­mu­nity that nur­tures aca­demic achiev­ers and glob­ally re­spon­si­ble ci­ti­zens.

To­day, Nexus con­tin­ues to achieve in­ter­na­tional stan­dards of ex­cel­lence and global recog­ni­tion in ed­u­ca­tion.

With a learn­ing cam­pus based in Putrajaya, Nexus is a mem­ber of the Tay­lor's Ed­u­ca­tion Group, which en­com­passes some of the largest and lead­ing in­ter­na­tional schools in Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore.

Recog­nised as a Coun­cil of In­ter­na­tional Schools (CIS) ac­cred­ited school, Nexus caters to stu­dents from the preschool level to Year 13. It also pur­sues aca­demic ex­cel­lence in the IPC, IGCSE and IB diploma pro­gramme.

Nexus Board­ing House has an in­ter­na­tional stan­dard board­ing fa­cil­ity ded­i­cated to 10 to 18 years old, with the su­per­vi­sion of an ex­pa­tri­ate Di­rec­tor of Board­ing.

Nexus In­ter­na­tional School, Putrajaya has earned the Ap­ple Dis­tin­guished School in 2015 and 2017 and has been recog­nised as a Mas­ter­ing School by the IPC since 2013.
