新加坡毅德国际学校,中小学生实现幼儿园到高中一体化求学的梦想之旅

Singapore’s growth as an educational hub has seen an influx of international students from around the globe over the past decade.

Nexus International School Singapore (NISS) embraces Singapore’s diversity and quality educational standards;the NISS tag line being “embracing diversity and challenging minds”.

NISS enrolled its first learners in July 2011 and now caters to more than 350 students from around 50 different countries. Believing in openness in communication, NISS possesses a transparent and supportive ethos, and the environment welcomes and cares for all cultures.

As a member of the established Taylors Education Group (TEG), NISS draws on over four decades of educational excellence and experience in school management. TEG is one of the region’s largest and most successful education providers, meeting the needs of over 22000 learners.

Committed to cultivating more than academic skills in its learners, NISS believes that every child’s emotional, physical, creative and intellectual needs should be celebrated and nurtured. An exceptionallygood teacher to student ratio, personalization of learning and the integration of latest technologies into the curriculum widen and deepen the opportunities available for learners far beyond the classroom.

Its new Principal, Deputy Principal, Head of Senior School and Head of Junior School are all experienced international educators, and have assembled a high qualified and well trained and experienced group of teachers from around the world. The increase in the number of teachers provides us with greater expertise and capacity in a wide range of areas, including specialist subjects, learning support, pastoral care and curriculum leadership.

Nexus’ priorities this year fall into five main areas.

  1. To review and revitalise the curriculum
  2. To introduce a pedagogy focused on the personalisation of learning
  3. To carry out a digital revolution which will culminate in a 1 to 1 laptop scheme and the embedding of digital technologies in every aspect of the teaching and learning process
  4. To widen and deepen the opportunities for learners outside the classroom
  5. To review and strengthen our systems and process to support learning

Parents and learners will immediately see a high level of personalisation in the classroom. Following initial assessment, teaching and learning processes will be designed to address each child’s learning needs. Ongoing assessment will ensure that all learners can make optimal progress. Students learn a range of skills that will enable them to become more self-regulating learners so that they can take greater responsibility for their learning.

The 44,000 square metre campus contains gymnasiums, a swimming pool, sport fields, an auditorium, and music rooms along with science and multimedia laboratories – all the facilities necessary in supporting the development and enrichment of a well-rounded individual. Co-curricular activities range from sports such as tennis, dance, and swimming, to drama, journalism, calligraphy and environmental clubs. NISS also participates actively in sports competitions organized by the Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools.

NISS provides an inclusive learning environment with a highly qualified Learning Support team. English Language Support classes are offered for learners who are not yet proficient in the language.

NISS is a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), is an approved Cambridge Internal Examinations (CIE) Centre, is EduTrust certified, and is also an International Baccalaureate World School, authorized to offer the IB Primary Years and Diploma Programmes.

The academic year runs from August to June but enrolments are open year round, subject to availability.
