One World International School For Expat Children In Singapore

In Singapore, the demand for International Schools are high. There are about 40 international schools currently and it is struggling with rising demand. However, the parents who have been on long waiting lists, will be relieved to know that a new foreign school called One World International School will be opening it's doors as soon as September. That is good news to some who had to send few of their children in different schools due to restricted places in current schools. The new school will have a capacity of taking in as many as 450 students when it is opened. The school programmes are accredited by the University of Cambridge. It is also built with facilities in the nearby site like gymnasium, tennis courts and multi purpose auditorium.

One World International School will be located in Upper Changi Road East. It is being set up by Nishant Garodia, a Mumbai based businessman who plans to take his One World branding beyond Singapore.

With the additon of this school, it will definitely relieve the crunch of places for expatriates' school going kids. At present other international schools have even worked in a guarantee fee of up to 6 digits, just to guarantee for a placement in the school. However, One World International School has no plans to do so, much to the relieve of some parents.
