Matrix Global Schools comprise of Matrix Private School, Matrix International School and Matrix International Preschool. Our schools share one campus, one vision and one mission.
Our philosophy is to challenge our students to be intellectually curious, responsive and persistent; to be committed to and expressive of their ideas. Our goal is to ensure all will become articulate, courageous and will develop a realisation that the world is their classroom and that our lessons are for life. To achieve this, we nurture a close partnership with parents and the community. Learning is truly a global and "Second to None" experience on our 20 acre campus.
