Rationale


As an institution that specialises in Math and Science, we recognise the need to stretch students with exceptional talent to help them realise their fullest potential. This is in line with the philosophy of the school in empowering, inspiring and nurturing talents.

Objectives

The Talent Development Programme - EINSTEIN+ aims to develop and spur the best students in our school to achieve greater success, particularly in becoming Pioneers, Achievers, Thinkers & Humanitarians. They are groomed to become good role models for other students to emulate.


Framework

The Programme adopts the following IDEAS Talent Development framework which stands for Identification, Development, Exposure, Achievement and Service.



Through the process, we hope to develop our students’ strength and talents particularly in the areas of Math & Science. We aim to provide opportunities for students to learn beyond classroom and be passionate in what they are learning. We encourage our students to share actively and learn with the best both locally and internationally. Lastly, we want to inculcate the spirit of giving back to the community. 

Some of the special talent development programmes available in the school:

NUS High School Overseas Student Academic Programme (NUSHS OSAP)

Selected Year 4 and Year 6 students can choose to undergo two weeks of overseas academic programmes that are specially arranged by the school in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, France, Russia, UK, China and Australia.
