Find out how affordable fees, a globally recognized curriculum, and a fantastic culture come together to make OWIS a great choice for your kids (and visit its upcoming Open House for more deets)!
There are many things to love about living in Singapore (no harsh winters, the cleanliness, affordable food), but sadly, the high cost of living isn’t one of them. This is especially true when it comes to enrolling your child in an international school. The cost of educating your kids can burn a huge hole in your pocket, particularly when there’s still 10-15 years until they start university. At One World International School (OWIS) Nanyang, you don’t have to choose between a quality education and affordable school fees – we’re deadly serious here. You don’t.
Affordable learning with high standards
International school fees are are no joke, and we were pleasantly surprised to hear that OWIS Nanyang offers a thoughtfully priced education with one of the most affordable rates in town (almost 40% of the fees of other international schools!). By no means is the quality of students’ learning compromised, however. OWIS’s top-notch curriculum ensures students are more than ready for the International Baccalaureate Diploma or other globally recognised pre-university qualifications.
The school also adopts the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, as well as International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), both of which are tried-and-tested and known for opening doors for students after graduation. On top of that, the school’s been a consistently high performer on the International Schools’ Assessment (ISA), which evaluates the core skills and effectiveness of schools.
A multicultural melting pot
Of course, a great curriculum is not all that makes an outstanding school. The warm multicultural environment is another aspect worth applauding. To ensure diversity, a 30% cap is placed on student nationality. This means that the school’s student body is made up of a huge range of languages, ethnicities and cultural heritages. Every effort is made to foster multiculturalism, be it through cultural celebrations or the house system. So if your family is new to Singapore, there’s no need to worry about your kids feeling out of place at school. Everyone is respected and valued, regardless of background. In addition to feeling accepted, students are well-supported by teachers. OWIS believes in maintaining a high ratio of teachers to students (1:14), meaning that students get the attention they deserve to thrive in their learning and development.
Pumped up digs
Besides boasting an amazing culture, the school’s got a shiny new campus in the works! OWIS’s Nanyang campus is due to open in January 2018, with some impressive facilities ready to be revealed. Classrooms are spacious and well-equipped, with iPads, Macbooks and LED displays. Specialist classrooms have also been set up for science, art, music and drama, along with extensive outdoor facilities. Think basketball courts, a garden, an adventure playground, a soccer/rugby field, a multi-purpose hall and early childhood grounds. So whether your children are budding athletes, aspiring artists or scientists in the making, rest assured that they will have ample resources at school to back up their ambitions!
