What the school says
“Yesterday we might have talked about creating 'global citizens of tomorrow.' Today we would do well to recognise that our learners are already world citizens.
In a more connected, more social world, where students have more choice and greater access to information, schools have had to become more flexible and adaptive in order to meet the increasingly diverse needs of modern learners.
The shift is toward a more personalised approach to learning.
We strive to create in our school an inviting environment, in which human respect and values are balanced against academic rigour, and where learners are encouraged to realise their potential and to respect their own unique worth as well as that of others.
Nexus International School has a team of highly qualified international educators, delivering well-balanced curricula based on the best standards and practices used around the world.
We are an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). We are also a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), and an approved Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Centre.”
NISS is an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).

The Grade 9 and 10 programme follows the University of Cambridge curriculum leading to the Cambridge IGCSE examinations. Year 12 and 13 learners prepare for the exams at the end of the IB Diploma Programme.
