Established since January 2005, the NUS High School’s House system forms the structure for the provision of student support for intra-school programmes and activities. The House system provide a platform for interaction for students across levels as well as facilitating peer bonding across levels. It also inculcates a sense of belonging to the House and school and promotes camaraderie and teamwork.
