With a globally recognised curriculum, great facilities including a nature garden, play areas, art, music, drama and sports facilities, and an ethos of kindness and international mindedness all at a unique fee – it’s no wonder that OWIS Nanyang is the international school choice for so many!
When it comes to choosing an international school in Singapore for our children, we all want a place that will nurture them into being the best version of themselves. For many families, the school that they chose for this reason (and a few others) is OWIS Nanyang. Why not book a physical or virtual tour to see explore the school for yourself?
Here are the 5 most compelling reasons why OWIS Nanyang could be just the right fit for your family.
1. Globally Recognised Curriculum
OWIS Nanyang is accredited for the IB PYP curriculum. This globally recognised, inquiry-based programme makes students the agents of their learning, while teachers act as their guides and facilitators in their learning journeys.
The IB PYP follows a transdisciplinary approach to learning. What’s fascinating about this is that students discover the interconnectedness of knowledge. For example, a Unit of Inquiry on Ancient Civilisations becomes an opportunity to hone creativity by crafting fossils, construct 3D structures in Maths, explore the science behind mummification in an experiment, and embark on real-world learning through a trip to the museum.
The IB PYP becomes even more engaging in the hands of well-trained teachers. OWIS Nanyang’s educators bring their passion and experience to the classroom every day to make learning exciting for our Primary learners.
OWIS Nanyang goes all the way from Early Childhood to Grade 12 and the focus on academic rigour through inquiry-based learning continues in Secondary School through the Cambridge IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme

OWIS Nanyang is a technology-enabled campus and students learn to use technology responsibly and productively through interactive tools like Apple TVs, iPads, and more.
