“At Nexus, learners experience a calm and supportive environment for both learning and living. They are encouraged to embrace diversity and challenge their minds, and have a passion for learning and life. We also acknowledge each learner as a distinct person with different interests, abilities and needs, and cultivate their passion in ways that best suit their needs,” said Ms Alison Hampshire, Principal, Nexus International School Putrajaya.

Learners aged 10 to 18 years can also board at the school through the Nexus Boarding programme. They receive a continuous learning experience in a nurturing environment that prepares them for adult life,  boarder’s emotional, physical, creative and intellectual needs.

Some boarders even view Nexus Boarding as bridging the gap between being dependant on their family to full independence, or bridging the gap between childhood and adulthood,” said Troy Looms, Director of Boarding, Nexus International School Putrajaya.
