Nexus International School firmly believes in putting your child at the centre of his or her education.
From the early childhood years, to primary, secondary and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, Nexus ensures that its child-centered philosophy is echoed by every teacher, in every class and in every extra-curricular activity.
Catering to 900 learners aged three to 18 years from more than 50 countries, Nexus aims to create an innovative and respectful learning environment. The school works hard to ensure that students have world-class education that is internationally recognised and accredited by the most respected awarding bodies.
Each child at Nexus is taught based on his or her personal motivations, understandings and talents. Nexus encourages its learners to see the world from a global perspective, teaching them to become independent through experiences within and beyond the classroom. Technology is embedded in the learning process to enhance creativity. Children are naturally curious and want to learn, so instead of teaching Mathematics using a textbook, at Nexus, they may play a “crack the code” game using maths problems to unlock the box. Biology students use augmented reality to dissect the human anatomy digitally, to see the separate structures and how they work together to form the human body.
Inspired learning starts with highly motivated and professional teachers. Nexus encourages
personal development, with 35 percent of teachers holding a Master’s degree and 61 percent of
its classroom assistants holding Bachelor’s degrees. Additionally, its international staff speaks a range of languages to help children communicate and build confidence from the start.
“Our initial interaction with the school was warm and welcoming, and that familial culture is
authentic and embedded clearly. Both kids are excited about the prospect of going to school each day, and they’re still excited to tell us what they’ve done at the end of each day. If they’re enjoying their learning and their interaction with their classmates, it makes it all very reassuring for us as parents.” – Ali and Vaughan Baker, parents to Fara, 3 (Nursery), and Mack, 5 (Year 1)
