It lets our community know what they can expect from us. It's based on our holistic approach that prepares our learners to be tomorrow's dynamic, innovative leaders. Our practices and principles support every aspect of development — social, emotional, and physical — as we equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a global society.
Rather than follow a rigid framework, our approach fosters concept development across subject areas to make the learning relevant and meaningful beyond the classroom.
Here are the core principles behind our one-of-a-kind framework.
Our motto. Our international school model ensures a well-rounded education, with an emphasis on multiculturalism, that prepares students to be lifelong learners.
Our model encourages children to challenge themselves and provides opportunities for them to unlock potential they didn't know they had. In short, we give our students the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the 21st century.
We opened our first school in Singapore in 2008. Our vibrant Nanyang campus officially opened in January 2018, on 32,000 sqm of colourful gardens and lush, green learning spaces. We provide cutting-edge facilities, equipped with the latest technology. Our maximum class size is 24 students.
OWIS is part of the prestigious Global Schools Foundation, a Singaporean, not-for-profit organization that educates students of over 70 nationalities.
