Welcome to OWIS Nanyang

Welcome to One World International School and welcome to our One World community of over 70 nationalities and cultures.

It is with immense pleasure that I extend a heartfelt welcome to all of you, as you embark on this journey of discovering what makes OWIS Nanyang the much-loved school that it is. As the Head of School, I am honoured to introduce you to our philosophy.

At OWIS Nanyang, we firmly believe in nurturing academic excellence together with the development of kindness and international mindedness as core values, a sense of community, and opportunities that extend beyond our classrooms and our campus. Our primary goal is to provide students with a childhood filled with cherished memories, lifelong friendships, the nurturing of talents, celebrations of achievements, and a space for continuous learning and growth.

We understand that choosing the right educational environment for your child is an important decision, one that profoundly impacts their future. Our commitment is to create an inclusive and engaging educational experience that prepares students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We firmly believe that education extends far beyond textbooks and tests, encompassing the holistic development of each child.

I encourage you to explore our school, discover our learning ethos, and be a part of the vibrant and supportive community we have created for our students and their families. 

We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with you and look forward to sharing in the incredible journey of inspiring your child to achieve their potential.

What You Can Expect

At OWIS, you can expect to discover a learning environment that nurtures students and encourages them to grow into independent, skilled individuals who are ready to become leaders in a global economy. We take pride in the fact that our concept-driven curriculum focusses on:
Generating open and honest discussion

Generating open and honest discussion in the classroom.

At OWIS, we want our students to become lifelong learners, and we know that can only be accomplished if they discover the joys of the learning process. Our school curriculum is not designed for students to memorise data and reiterate facts. It is created to encourage discussion and develop critical thinking as well as problem-solving skills. For our students, the process happens organically due to our open concept classrooms. The classroom structure itself allows for open-ended discussion between the instructors and the students and helps students feel like a valued part of their school community.

Providing students with an opportunity to work in a group setting.

The students of today who want to become the leaders of tomorrow must learn to work effectively as a team, which is why there are many group learning opportunities at OWIS. From working as a group within the classroom to collaborating online using the latest technology, our students become familiar with working as a group in order to come up with innovative solutions that are needed in today’s competitive global economy. Group learning allows them to learn to work effectively with people of different backgrounds and with unique ideas.

OWIS - Offering hands-on learning

Offering hands-on learning opportunities that focus on 21st-century skill development.

Our curriculum often requires our students to be active participants in the learning process. They have access to the best technological resources available today, which helps them to become adept at using new and innovative devices in the classroom setting and beyond. We want our students to develop the 21st-century skills that are in high demand today, such as critical thinking, collaborative communication and technological skills. We know that hands-on learning is the best way to develop and perfect these skills, which is why it remains at the forefront of all aspects of our curriculum programme.

We have intentionally designed our facilities so that students feel comfortable and confident throughout their entire school day. Some of the facilities at OWIS include:
