What the school says
"One World International School offers an excellent international education to children from the ages of 3 to 18 in a nurturing multi-cultural environment at an equitable fee point. We have a diverse student and teacher community with over 70 nationalities represented on campus, which promotes an understanding of different perspectives, cultures and global awareness.
Our ethos is to deliver a highly personalised education for all students. With a maximum of 18 students per class in our Early Childhood programme to a maximum of 24 in each of our Primary and Secondary classes, our teachers have more one-to-one time with each student to provide feedback and improve learning. We believe in fostering creativity and a desire for meaningful connection so that children can flourish into happy and productive adults. One World International School is a special place where every member of our community is valued and respected.
This community is at the heart of everything we do: our cultural festivities, our celebrations, our House system and especially in all our classrooms. We understand that one of the most important aspects of learning is the relationship between the teacher and each individual student."

From the head of school
"One World International School Is one of the fastest-growing international schools in Singapore and we have grown from 230 students in January 2018 to 1,300 students in January 2020.
The school is dedicated to being a truly international school with a diverse student and teaching population. We have a 30 percent cap on a single nationality.
We maintain our position as a high-quality, moderate-fee international school. That does not mean that we are compromising in any way in our curriculum or extra-curricular activities. We are deeply invested in having all the technology and teaching resources that we need. And we’re also very dedicated to ensuring that we have an international staff of teachers who come with international experience, teachers who are very passionate about what we teach here – the IB PYP Programme, the Cambridge IGCSE and the IB Diploma.
We try, live, teach and be everything that’s associated with our name. And that covers a whole different range of aspects of who we are as a community here. Being one with the world in terms of our curriculum and having high standards, appreciating nature – we try to reflect that in our environment here. Being really good communicators, creative thinkers, critical problem solvers and also being good collaborators. Those core skills are the things that our students will need for the future so we build that into our curriculum.
We are constantly building a community of kindness and nurture and being caring and most importantly bringing a love of being at school here. We want all our children to be happy and have that eagerness to come to school and feel that they are one with us."
– Michelle Dickinson, Head of School
What the parents say
“We moved our two kids to One World International School this year after much research on international schools in the locality. We were looking for a school with both a nurturing and creative environment and eventually settled on OWIS. It has not failed to deliver on any of our expectations.
There are many things I love about the school but these for me are the highlights.
- OWIS is built on the foundation of kindness which as a parent, I was really drawn to and which they encompass into everything they do from play to the actual curriculum.
- The IB curriculum has a good balance of innovation, practical work and encourages a growth mindset.
- The teachers deliver classes that are fun and engaging and inspire a curious mind.
- There is a great range of CCA's to choose from.
- My kids love school and what more could I ask for!”
