Our Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Philosophy
To Produce Global Citizens with Noble Hearts and Noble Minds
Our school provides high quality education in a safe, respectful, and supportive environment. Nobel empowers students to meet current and future challenges to develop social awareness, civic responsibility, and personal growth within the greater community.
Our Journey Towards Excellence
Nobel International School was founded in 2004 by a group of educators and business leaders who saw the need for a high-quality school in the city. They believed that students should be exposed to a diverse and challenging curriculum that would prepare them for success in the global community.
The school's founders worked tirelessly to secure funding and resources, and after several years of planning and preparation, Sekolah Rendah Sri Nobel finally opened its doors to the first group of 76 students, using the national curriculum. Our goal was to provide students with a holistic education, making a difference in their lives by ensuring that learning is fun and engaging. We introduced the concept of Innovation Centre where each class was organised into three or four smaller groups, with each group working on different subjects or skills. Character Building was an integral part of the curriculum to support the goal of helping our students build good character. With the introduction of a Form 1 and Form 2 class, Sekolah Menengah Sri Nobel was formed in the following year.
The year 2012 saw an increased need for an international curriculum, and the school rebranded Sri Nobel to Nobel International School by adopting the Cambridge International Curriculum. This curriculum encourages students to think critically, develop a curious mind, and be life-long learners.
Along with this development, the school upgraded the Character Building programme to the Character Transformation programme. Embracing the ever-changing demands of the 21st Century requires the school to support our students in transforming their character with qualities like courage to venture beyond their comfort zones, resilience to handle the constant changes in their environment, and determination to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
The onset of the pandemic in 2020 due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus resulted in students needing support to manage their emotional and mental well-being. The dual-purpose school was birthed in 2021, where we introduce programmes to provide strategies and resources to assist our students to navigate through the challenges they were facing and enable them to be in a stronger position to address future demands.
Today, Nobel International School is a thriving institution, known for its commitment to academic excellence and the well-being of its diverse student body. The school's mission is to provide students with a world-class education that prepares them for success in an increasingly interconnected world.
Shaping Global Citizens with Noble Hearts and Noble Minds
Nobel International School is a premier educational institution that provides a complete educational journey for students from Early Years (Ages 4 to 6), Elementary (Year 1 to 6), Junior and Senior School (Year 7 to 11). The school is dedicated to providing students with a well-rounded education that goes beyond the classroom, and it is committed to fostering a love of learning in every student, along with transforming our students with noble characters and compassion to reach out to the underprivileged community.
Wholesome education where a child is given opportunities to reach his/her full potential is the heartbeat of Nobel’s founder, Ms Clarine Chun. Thus, the school’s programmes are aimed to optimise the learning experience of every child.
Ms Clarine Chun, who is also the founder of the FunGates System for preschools, established Nobel to carry through what was started in the kindergartens. FunGates is designed with a strong emphasis on building integrity and values as part of the character development of a child, thereby producing children who perform better academically, socially and spiritually. Nobel offers a continuation of that programme to help build a solid foundation in a child’s life, enabling them to grow intellectually, physically, spiritually, and morally.
