Nexus International Malaysia is extremely proud to be ranked as Top 2% Global IB Schools in the World and Top 50 in Asia according to Education Advisers Ltd (see IB-Schools.com), cementing its position as the Top IBDP School in Malaysia. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is the World's fastest-growing curriculum with more than 5400 schools having adopted it to date.
Founded in 2008, Nexus International Schools offers the IBDP as a pre-university qualification for senior learners. This follows the International Early Years and International Primary Curriculum in the Primary school as well as the Middle School and IGCSE curriculum in lower secondary. The delivery of the curriculum and the philosophy of the school - The Nexus Way, offers seamless transition in style, structure and approach to the IB Diploma Programme.
What is the IB Diploma Programme?
The IB Diploma provides learners with a depth of knowledge across traditional academic subjects, alongside opportunities to reflect on their understanding of the world around them. The Diploma assesses more than exam technique and encourages the growth of independent and confident learners.

Mr David Griffiths, Principal of Nexus, strives for learner empowerment at Nexus throughout all year levels in the school. He describes his pedagogical beliefs as fundamentally having a constructivist slant - that learning comes from relevant, real-life, hands-on experiences and situations around the learner. Learners are not just expected to reel off knowledge and facts through rote learning but develop deeper understandings. With skilful teachers and facilitators of learning, the classroom, as well as the environment outside of the classroom, are both conducive for this type of learning.

This aspect of learning can be seen in the innovative and creative ways that the school curricula are used to promote learning, including the 'Creativity, Activity and Service', or CAS programme available at Nexus' International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma for 16 to 19-years-old learners.
"Constantly attending, and often facilitating professional learning, our expert teachers are highly experienced in providing the individualized mentoring and support that our IBDP learners require and deserve throughout their 2-year pre-university course. This is absolutely critical to a successful IB Diploma Programme," he added.
Achieving Excellence, The Nexus Way
With IB scores that consistently surpass worldwide averages, Nexus has also enabled learners to achieve a perfect 45 points in the past three consecutive years. A Perfect Score in IBDP examinations is an extraordinary achievement with a very small percentage of learners (typically fewer than 1% per year) achieving this feat worldwide. Khoo Qi Xuan, Ahmad Matin Moors, Caryn Chan and Ju Eun Bae are all Nexus learners who have scored 45 points since 2019. Khoo was also the first Malaysian to receive the prestigious Karsh International Scholarship to study at Duke University in the USA, while Matin is currently pursuing Economics and English Literature at The University of St. Andrews in the UK. More recently in the class of 2021, Caryn Chan was awarded the Lee Kong Chian Scholarship to study Computer Science at Singapore Management University, while Ju Eun Bae has secured a place at KAIST, a top-ranking Korean University.
Caryn acknowledges that the secret to her success was the conducive, motivating and supportive environment at Nexus. The strong camaraderie between peers and teachers has been the pillar of her IB experience at Nexus. "There is always someone that I can reach out to, and it's reassuring to know that you're not alone in this," she added.
Ju Eun explained how the Nexus community helped her to succeed. During her two years IB journey at Nexus she received support and encouragement from her teachers which brought the best out of her. "Whenever I was stressed out during the extended lockdowns, they guided me and counselled me in order to maintain my motivation to learn," she remarked.
Many of the top IBDP achievers at Nexus are boarders, indicating a strong academic advantage and balanced lifestyle in the Boarding House. Nexus boarding is ideal for exam year students, offering peer-to-peer as well as expert teacher support.
Growing from Strength to Strength with a New IB Learning Hub

With the growth and expansion of the IB Programme at Nexus, the school has invested and built a new and exciting IB Learning Hub for its learners. This fantastic, learner-focused space has dedicated quiet study areas as well as areas for group discussion and collaboration. With a desire to look after the wellbeing of the learners during the challenges and rigour of the IBDP, there are also dedicated spaces for relaxation and recreation. The IB teaching team is able to support the learners using dedicated spaces for individual meetings and higher education consultations.
