What OWIS parents and students say

Janelle R., IBDP Batch of 2021

My teachers were incredibly supportive of me and my classmates when doing IB and some really went out of their way to help us as much as they could, which I appreciated so much.

Adeliya F., IBDP Batch of 2023

At OWIS, I've learnt a lot about communication, and how it's important to be proactive, not reactive. I've also learnt that kindness and empathy are key in leadership and collaborative work.

Christina O.

I like that technology plays enough of a part within my children's studies but does not dominate basic skills towards literacy with reading, writing and presentation. There is very much a balance.

FAQs

As a foreign school in Singapore, English is the language of instruction for all our programmes, except our bilingual programme where Mandarin and English are equally used.

For students who are new to English, OWIS offers a specialised English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme. The number and frequency of EAL programme lessons required for each student are determined by the EAL teachers based on a pre-assessment. Each student’s progress is closely monitored throughout the EAL programme with a final assessment at the end of the programme.

In IB PYP there is a requirement for all schools to offer additional language tuition. At OWIS, our chosen language is Mandarin. Students are taught Mandarin using the same inquiry-based model and making as many links as possible with the Units of Inquiry.

Secondary students have the option of choosing Mandarin, French or Spanish from Grade 6. In our IGCSE (Grades 9-10) and IB DP (Grades 11-12) programmes, we offer Mandarin, French and Spanish as foreign or modern language options for our students.

Recognising the challenges of moving to a new country, OWIS provides robust support for students transitioning from abroad. Our orientation program is designed to familiarise students with the school’s culture and academic expectations. 

Additionally, language support services and a buddy system are in place to ease the adjustment process. By pairing incoming students with peers who are already familiar with student life in Singapore and the international school environment, we foster a welcoming community where every student feels supported and connected from day one.

As an award-winning international school, our student body in Singapore consists of over 70 nationalities.
