NPS International School is a popular, high-performing all-through school offering a choice of Indian, UK and IB curricula. Part of the India-based NPS group, the school enrols 1,800 students from nursery through to Grade 12 at its large campus in the East Coast region.

NPS is popular with Singapore’s Indian expat community due to its ties with the National Public Schools (NPS) Group and The International School of Bangalore (TISB) in India. Since opening in 2008, NPS (Singapore) has established itself as a top performing Indian and international school and drawn on the expertise of its sister schools. It is one of only two schools in Singapore to offer students the choice of an Indian curriculum including CBSE 10th and 12th Board exams, or an international pathway that includes IGCSEs and the IB Diploma Programme; the other option is GIIS SMART Campus.

As well as offering a dual pathway, NPS is one of Singapore’s most affordable schools for the IB Diploma Programme; annual tuition fees are $27,300 and other schools are charging $40,000 and above. It is also one of Singapore’s consistently top-performing IB schools, with average scores of 37 and above. There is much more to NPS than its academic reputation though. Here’s a school that runs a strong sports programme including cricket, football, basketball and badminton, teaches Hindi and Tamil as language options, has a strong focus on dance in the primary years, and offers a wide range of extra-curricular clubs during and after school.
