Established in 1991, Overseas Family School (OFS) is a Pre-K to Grade 12 international school that serves a vibrant multicultural community of approximately 70 nationalities. With a beautiful, modern campus located in the eastern part of Singapore, OFS is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and offers the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) for Pre-K1 (2 years old) to K2, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for Grades 1 to 5, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) for Grades 6 to 12. Students can also pursue the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).
At OFS, students learn and grow in a dynamic, diversity rich environment promoting personal initiative, intellectual curiosity and respect for different perspectives. Academic programs at OFS are rigorous and thoughtfully-designed. OFS' highly-acclaimed International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programmes (IB MYP and IB DP) immerse students in a wide range of stimulating course offerings designed to help them make practical connections between their learning and the outside world. Because we believe that every student can succeed, OFS students are not preselected into the Diploma programme. Any student who wishes to pursue the IB Diploma programme is allowed and encouraged to do so, making this one of the most inclusive IB Diploma programmes offered in Singapore. We take great pride in our students’ academic achievements. With a 98% pass rate, our students' IB results well surpass world averages and the school has consistently produced students scoring a perfect 45 points year after year. Approximately 37% of the diplomas awarded every year are also prestigious IB Bilingual Diplomas, reflecting the exceptional language resources and support available at OFS. The school's extraordinary language acquisition programs support students in their learning journey. Our Study Preparation Program (SPP) is best-in-industry for rapid English language acquisition, while our Mother Tongue Program is the most extensive amongst international schools in Singapore, with 14 different languages on offer. This thoughtful attention and dedicated support, provided at no additional cost, allows many students joining OFS or returning home to quickly progress and join mainstream classes without losing an academic year.
To support the holistic development of students, OFS also encourages broad participation in the arts, sport and other extracurricular activities (ECAs). A wide array of ECAs are open to all students and provide many opportunities to explore interests, join teams and leadership groups, and contribute to the local community. Through our Competitive Sports programme (OFS Tigers) and Enrichment Programme OFS students also enjoy access to an exciting variety of sports ranging from swimming and gymnastics, to badminton, basketball, touch football and sailing at the recreational or competitive skill levels.
