At NPS International School, Singapore, we believe in adhering to the original definition of the word education: the Latin word ‘educere’ comprises e- (out of) and -ducere (to draw). We strongly believe that our purpose is not to put information in, but to draw out wonder, joy and intrinsic abilities from your child through our comprehensive International programme that fosters well-rounded learning.

"By education I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in the child and man; body, mind and spirit." - Mahatma Gandhi

We inculcate in your child the ability to absorb not just the subjects that he or she is taught but the very world around him or her. We believe we are raising not just young scholars but future world leaders who are mindful and capable of making our planet a better place.

We are convinced that each child is unique and has a special role to play in life. Our holistic development model puts children on the path to discovering their purpose. At the same time, we also hold the view that quality education should not cost an arm and a leg.

It is value-driven principles such as these that have led us to feature among the best affordable and top International schools today in Singapore, for over 13 years and counting.

Our Programmes

Curated Curriculum

The Cambridge curriculum (integrated) followed by us in the Primary and Middle schools, draws on experiential learning through discussion, exploration, experimentation, positive reinforcement and other modern teaching-learning approaches. Both our academic experts and our leadership team strongly believe in nurturing knowledge and skills in parallel. Along with academic learning, social skills are emphasised through a host of on-school and off-school activities such as reading, music and movement, art and drama, outdoor experiences and sports.

The 7 key attributes

Every child at NPSI benefits from our seven key attributes: our six decade long and successful innings in education, small and manageable number of students in each class (an average of 25), well rounded and holistic approach to imparting learning, strong emphasis on diverse activities and a strong sports culture, wide and varied choice of languages and subjects, and close parent-school engagement.


Group’s six decades in education

Founded in 1959 the NPS Group nurtures over 15,000 students in various campuses.

"The opportunities offered in school allowed me to explore various aspects of my identity, and to become comfortable and confident in expressing myself through them. All the events and extracurriculars trained me in finding balance between various aspects of my life and taught me to thrive while doing so. My life revolves around school and I found best friends, mentors and role-models in the NPSI family."

"Love you NPSI."
