What Sets This School Apart
At Overseas Family School, we are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment where all our students can dream, achieve and succeed.
Academic programs at Overseas Family School are rigorous and thoughtfully-designed. We take great pride in our students’ academic achievements. Our highly-acclaimed International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programs (IB MYP and IB DP) immerse students in a wide range of stimulating course offerings designed to help them make practical connections between their learning and the outside world. With a 98% pass rate, OFS has produced students scoring a perfect 45 points for 8 years running and its IB results well surpass world averages. In 2022, an impressive 37% of the diplomas were also prestigious IB Bilingual Diplomas, reflecting the exceptional language resources and support available at OFS. These results are especially remarkable in light of OFS’ inclusive, open-entry admissions and exams policies. Because it believes that every student can succeed, OFS students are not preselected into the Diploma program. Any student who wishes to pursue the IB Diploma program is allowed and encouraged to do so, making this one of the most inclusive IB Diploma programs offered in Singapore.
