SINGAPORE – Media OutReach Newswire – December 28, 2023 – In the evolving landscape of international education, Singapore’s Nexus International School provides an example of how
diversity can play a central role in education. This approach is becoming increasingly relevant for globally mobile families seeking comprehensive international exposure for their children in Singapore.
The importance of diversity in international schools
Nexus International School welcomes a truly diverse learner population, with no nationality exceeding 15%, a notable distinction in Singapore’s international school sector. Unlike other international institutions – where one nationality often predominates – Nexus has a truly balanced demographic. This approach is particularly significant in the current educational climate, where a shift towards less diverse student bodies is seen in many international schools in Singapore.
Matt Hall, director of Nexus, expanded on this point, saying: “In a world where global mobility is the norm and families move frequently for work, the ability to adapt and thrive in multicultural environments is invaluable. The demographics of our school’s learners reflect this globalized landscape. It is an environment in which learners from diverse backgrounds collaborate, learn and grow. He also explained how Nexus’ parents shared their excitement at being part of such a balanced mix of nationalities. Overall, the school becomes a wonderful pot of mixing cultures where lasting friendships flourish.
Integrating multiculturalism into education
Nexus’ diverse body of learners is deeply integrated into its educational philosophy. The curriculum for their
International Baccalaureate (IB) Program actively leverages this diversity to provide a holistic education, aiming to foster cultural intelligence and adaptability – skills often considered crucial in today’s interconnected global community.
Experts in the field of education emphasize
the importance of such environments by developing learners’ intercultural understanding and preparing them for future job markets, where multicultural skills are increasingly in demand. Nexus’ approach aligns with these educational best practices, enabling students to navigate the cultural and social dynamics of modern workspaces.
