Principal's Message

Welcome to Nexus International School (Singapore), situated in the heart of Ulu Pandan in the Little Red Dot. Our school's purpose is to educate the youth of the world to take their productive place as leaders in the global community by offering our learners a comprehensive education from Nursery to Year 13. We are a caring community where students' needs are a priority and where traditional Singaporean and modern Western educational values are respected and encouraged to coexist. Nexus offers university preparatory programmes aiming to provide a challenging academic environment emphasising learning, as well as social and personal growth.

As the new Principal of Nexus, I am delighted that the school’s values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect, innovation and a sense of community. I know that the development of the school over the past few years has been significant. The future will build on these firm foundations focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners. Buildings have been renovated and high-quality teachers appointed. The curriculum will continue to be regularly reviewed to ensure that it remains appropriate to the needs of our learners. In addition, there is a well-established 1:1 laptop program in Years 6-13, with a generous allocation of iPads and MacBooks throughout the Primary School; this will allow learners and teachers to fully exploit the very best of modern learning opportunities.

The curriculum emphasises the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities for all students attending our school. We believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life.  Learners are continually encouraged to appreciate our diverse community and to care for others by becoming global citizens, and develop a concern and active respect for the environment.

At Nexus, the educational community strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision makers when solving problems that they will encounter in our multicultural, ever-changing world. Ultimately, each learner will gain from their life at school according to the effort they apply.

Currently, Nexus International School (Singapore) is an IB-authorised School for the Primary Years and Diploma Programmes and is EduTrust 4-year certified by the CPE of Singapore. Nexus is also a Cambridge International Examination Board Centre (CIE) and has become a fully accredited member of Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WSAC) in 2017, following a lengthy period of evaluation and a rigorous inspection process. Furthermore, Nexus has also been awarded the prestigious 'Apple Distinguished School' status in recognition of its 'innovation, leadership and educational experience'. It is heartening to receive such respected external validation of the world-class education provided at Nexus and the tireless and expert work of itself.

We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents, and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools of communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive website where they can retrieve pertinent information about their children's academic achievement. You are encouraged to regularly check our website and read about our exciting academic and co-curricular activities. We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. Interested parents are encouraged to contact our school and to ask any questions they may have regarding our school and the programmes we offer.

We look forward to meeting you.
