Dover Court International School (also known as DCIS) was established in 1972 and ever since then it has worked its way towards becoming a leading British international school in Singapore, whose main objective is the development of its student’s academic and personal growth.
Much like the British International School of Kuala Lumpur in Singapore, the British International School of Kuala Lumpur is a Nord Anglia Education institution. Dover Court International School is a part of Nord Anglia Education which is a group of premium status schools that are located all over the world.
As a Nord Anglia Education facility, DCIS is strongly rooted in the belief that there is no limit to what a student can obtain and that necessary steps should be taken in order to achieve that target such as personalised learning, creativity assessment, challenging educational syllabus as well as global exposure and opportunities.
The educational programme that is adopted by DCIS is based on the English National Curriculum. Through the English National Curriculum, students are provided with a quality learning experience under the guidance of teachers and advisors who has received extensive training and professional development due to their collaboration with Nord Anglia. The school has also now been certified by the Council of International Schools (CIS).
As many families that attend this school will eventually have to move or be transferred to another country, and that is one of the benefits of sending the kids to a Nord Anglia Education institution, as they can be transferred to another suitable school in the country desired.
DCIS presently have a diverse student body made up of over sixty nationalities, between the ages of 3 and 18. While the main language of instruction is English, subjects are also taugh in French, Spanish and Mandarin, which is widely spoken in Singapore and throughout the region.
Dover Court International School has relatively small class sizes for an international school of this size, with a maximum of 22 students per class at the Primary School and Secondary School levels. The experienced faculty members know how to challenge their pupils, inspire ambition within them, and to provide them support in overcoming learning obstacles.
Being a part of the Nord Anglia family also means that DCIS tends to attract the cream of the teaching talent from the region and beyond. Nord Anglia Education also supplies plenty of professional development opportunities to the teaching staff, meaning the educators are constantly learning, being challenged to push themselves and their syllabus, and are providing their students with the latest and most contemporary educational modules and lesson plans.
The school also provides an opportunity for the students to explore the world of music through its collaboration with the renowned Juilliard School. Not only that, its collaboration with MIT introduces an innovative way of learning the STEAM subjects, encouraging experimentation, creativity and application of skills to real world situations.
With more than 14 acres of the school ground, Dover Court International School strives to provide exclusive facilities for the students in order to create a rich learning experience. DCIS ensures that children have large space to play and students are encouraged in to participate in a wide range of sports activities. The school is also equipped with new technology and learning facilities which enhance the teaching and learning quality.
