In­ter­na­tional School (Sin­ga­pore)

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools Mini Guide 2018 -

All three chil­dren have been at­tend­ing Nexus since we moved to Sin­ga­pore in April 2014. The ex­pe­ri­ence at the school has been noth­ing short of amaz­ing. We’ve had four years of one out­stand­ing teacher af­ter an­other. There’s a wide ar­ray of ac­tiv­ity choice, from sports to mu­sic and drama. Our chil­dren have been very in­volved in a myr­iad of ac­tiv­i­ties from the be­gin­ning. They love Track & Field Day and com­pet­ing for their house.

As par­ents, the high­lights for us are twofold: firstly, the par­ents and fac­ulty that com­prise the Nexus com­mu­nity; also, the ex­po­sure to a di­ver­sity of cul­tures in day-to-day friend­ships as well as the cur­ricu­lum. The highlight for the chil­dren would have to be over­seas trips. Our older two have also trav­elled in­ter­na­tion­ally for swim­ming com­pe­ti­tions.

Nexus was one of the schools we planned to visit on mov­ing here. We came across the web­site while liv­ing in the US and re­ally liked their phi­los­o­phy. One visit to the school and we knew this was the school for our kids. The school walked the talk when it came to their core val­ues and cel­e­bra­tion of di­ver­sity. Ed­u­ca­tion ex­tends well be­yond the class­room and we love the holis­tic ap­proach. We be­lieve in the phi­los­o­phy of the IB pro­gramme and have seen the re­sults in our chil­dren. The IB and Nexus’s way of tying it all to­gether is bril­liant – it pro­vides stu­dents with a strong skill set to be suc­cess­ful in life. As par­ents, you know your chil­dren and what they need in a school; do your home­work and find one that works for your fam­ily.
