3 Key Qualities Of An NPS Student
School plays an essential role in the holistic development of a child. As such, it is crucial for you to enrol your child in the right school to ensure they reach their fullest potential.
So given the number of international schools in Singapore, why should you select NPS International School? Let us share the valuable qualities of our NPS students so that you can better understand why our school is the standout choice for your child’s educational needs.
Quality #1: Academic excellence
3 Key Qualities Of An NPS Student
It is natural for parents to want the best for their children, including wanting them to excel academically. As one of the top International Baccalaureate (IB) schools in Singapore, our academic staff has experience guiding students in delivering consistent top-performing results in their IB exams. Hence, ensuring our students can qualify for their dream university programme.
If any student struggles with the coursework, they can rest easy knowing that they have the support and guidance of their teachers. NPSI Singapore has an average of 16 students in IBDP classes, 22 students in IGCSE classes, and 25 students in other grades.
Other than the one-on-one attention from our teachers, they also constantly seek innovative ways to stimulate interactivity in the classroom, bringing a practical application to every theoretical element of a lesson to complement students’ acquisition of knowledge. Moreover, our teachers will provide strong after-school support to ensure students meet their academic goals. Such support can come in the form of supplementary classes for struggling students to reinforce positive learning.
However, a low teacher-student ratio and supplementary classes are only beneficial if the teacher possesses the aptitude to identify areas of improvement in their students and guide them to achieve their potential. This is something we understand all too well in NPS International School, which is why our professional and qualified teachers must undergo sustained training to ensure all-round effectiveness in teaching.
Quality #2: Well-rounded development.

At NPS International School, we understand the importance of developing our students holistically. As such, we promote a multi-modal approach focusing on academic and personal growth to develop our students’ leadership and life skills. This balance is essential for children, as it better prepares them for the future since our modern world requires more than academic prowess.
We have a strong sports culture emphasising quality high-performance sports training and development. Our students frequently win over 50% of the medals at International Schools’ championships. By participating in these various extra-curricular activities, our students also pick up valuable life skills, such as dedication, responsibility, and teamwork, that shape them into well-rounded individuals with the confidence to overcome any obstacle.
Our students’ skill sets are also expanded with these extra-curricular activities, which accelerate their academic performances and allow them to develop higher self-esteem. Furthermore, their development is not just limited to their studies and ECA activities. At NPS International School, we have a calendar of interesting activities that provide our students with various opportunities to develop social interaction, self-awareness, and confidence, ensuring their well-rounded development.
Additionally, NPS students can learn various languages to expand their horizons and gain better awareness of different cultures and ethos. Our students can select French, Spanish, and Hindi as their second language and Mandarin as their third language.
Coupled with our wide subject options in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and liberal arts fields, our students can widen their perspective and ensure better college preparedness, giving them a competitive edge in the modern world.
Quality #3: Our REACH Values - Determined
Resilient-NPS International School
Children need to be resilient to ensure that they can adapt to changes, cope with stress, and bounce back from whatever life throws at them. Fortunately, resilience is not an innate quality that a child either does or does not possess. It can be built and strengthened through specific life experiences.
Our REACH Values - NPS International School
Relationships built on trust, in particular, can provide children with role models who offer them encouragement and reassurance, thus bolstering their resilience. This is something we seek to achieve at NPS International School with our lessons, which aims to help our students build positive relationships and improve their overall well-being.
However, we also understand that our efforts alone may not be sufficient. Our students’ relationships with their parents play a pivotal role too! A positive, nurturing parent-child relationship helps a child feel secure, which is crucial in building their resilience and determination, hence helping them overcome the potential negative effects of stress. Therefore, our teachers seek to foster strong parent engagement in our students’ learning by maintaining an open communication line with the parents of their students.
Additionally, our school aims to cultivate a supportive, conducive atmosphere for learning where students are not afraid to fail and learn from their mistakes. Through our efforts, we hope to instill greater self-motivation and higher self-esteem in our students to help them learn to stand tall in the face of adversity.
Academics is not the be-all and end-all for your child’s educational needs. It is about ensuring your child receives a well-rounded education to ensure they have a better chance of success in life. This is what we offer our students at NPS International School – one of the top international schools in Singapore! And it is also why we seek to offer an affordable fee structure to make quality education attainable for every child.
