The NUS High School is located at Clementi Avenue 1 in a quiet residential neighborhood within a 15 minute walk of NUS. The school campus sits on a 4.67 ha plot of land which can accommodate a student population of 1300.
A key feature of the campus is a keen sense of openness which is evident from the vast open spaces designed to encourage interaction and discussion, as well as to stimulate students’ passion in exploring new scientific ideas.
The NUS High School with its resident block will serve not only as a container for support of learning and teaching but also foster community spirit among staff and students through its multitude of shared gathering spaces. It is envisaged that the learning is not confined within the walls of the classrooms or laboratories, but will extend to the outdoors and natural environment as well.
The school has an integrated environment that caters to the cognitive, physical, social and effective needs of students and staff. The school’s wireless network and facilities using high-end technologies provide a seamless and efficient system for learning and communication. Special features that manifest aspects of the scientific and mathematical worlds in the façade of the school include the Eco-learning Trail, the Pi Wall, and the “Periodic” Façade and the observatory. These featured elements complement some 50 classrooms, a 700 seat auditorium and well-equipped science and research laboratories.
Sitting atop the NUS High School residential block, the observatory boasts of a 14 –inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with a state-of-the-art star tracking and navigation system. It is equipped with a host of other accessories including a complete array of eyepieces, color filters, polarizer, solar filters and CCD cameras. The observatory will eventually be able to provide a live telecast of the various celestial bodies via internet connection. The NUS High School observatory provides the avid stargazers among the student population a most satisfying experience.
