Welcome to OWIS

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

It is my pleasure and privilege to lead OWIS and I have enjoyed nurturing the school from its planning stages, through its opening days and on to its current status as one of the most popular schools in Singapore.

When our families choose OWIS, they join a kind, caring and values-driven school that promotes and nurtures academic excellence through compassion, integrity and commitment. Our families 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.  Our families understand that we are committed to providing a wide range of experiences to capture each individual child’s love of learning.  Our curriculum and learning is designed to encourage discussion,  develop critical thinking and problem-solving, to be collaborative and supportive, and to develop innovative solutions for a competitive global economy.

We offer a holistic educational experience with academics, performing arts, sports and service, all mindfully intertwined to develop the whole child. We encourage our students to be active participants in their learning process with access to the best technological resources to develop 21st-century skills and to enjoy hands-on, real-life learning experiences.

One World International School promotes kindness to achieve success. Kindness underpins our values, our culture, our code of conduct and our decision-making, and I am looking forward to welcoming your child to join our kind and caring journey to academic excellence.

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 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 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.

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:
