A very warm welcome to Northbridge International School Cambodia (NISC). Our school is set in a spacious, modern 20-acre green campus which provides a haven for our thriving educational community here in the heart of the busy and vibrant city of Phnom Penh.
We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and offer an excellent international programme, which provides our students of all ages with academic rigor, whilst developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people, motivated to succeed. The IB challenges our students to excel in their studies and in their personal development and thoroughly prepares them for further study in top universities around the world.
At Northbridge, our dedicated and inspirational teachers nurture our students and build on individual strengths and passions. Our team of international educators are highly experienced and qualified and are committed to the all-round development of students.
Northbridge is the only school in Cambodia to offer unique global opportunities to our students and staff through our Nord Anglia Education (NAE) family of schools around the world. Our students are able to develop effective global citizenship through accessing and using our Global Campus. This is a Nord Anglia initiative which helps develop higher order thinking skills and connects students with other Nord Anglia students through online interaction and exchanges in locations such as New York and Tanzania.
Northbridge has high standards and successful external accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), is a member of the East Asia Region Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS) and belongs to the ASEAN Sports and Activities Conference (ASAC).
I hope you enjoy browsing through our school website and that you gain an insight into our exciting global learning community. Furthermore, my staff and I would love to have the opportunity to welcome you to our beautiful campus in person and to give you first-hand experience of our school life in action.

At Northbridge International School Cambodia the most important way that we work towards our school mission of inspiring dynamic, respectful and compassionate global citizens is through our curriculum.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
The Startup Studio
The Startup Studio has been built to serve the education market as a powerful solution company interested in accomplishing their goal of bringing students real outcomes of Empowerment, Performance and Wellness.
All of this is accomplished by giving students access to the entrepreneur’s journey as the best discipline by which to allow them to experience risk and failure, two critical components often missing inside of their school experience.
The company was Founded by Gary Conroy a serial entrepreneur after he developed a program in 2014 for Windermere Preparatory School, a Nord Anglia School situated in Windermere, Florida
Today, the company is focused on scaling its programming throughout the world and has established an office in Vietnam to help support their interest in serving the Southeast Asian market. While the company has conducted multiple workshops in the area the partnership with NISC marks The Startup Studio’s first partner school that will offer their entire three year Learn to Start Program.
“Entrepreneurship is a life skill that takes many years to develop,” said Conroy. “We have to stop telling students sensational stories about methodologies that ensure a speedy path from Startup to IPO. That is not the reality.
“Entrepreneurship is first about knowing yourself and believing that you can sustain an independent economy. It is a learn by failure discipline, and it begins with story and understanding who you are and what it is you are passionate about. The foundation of Entrepreneurship Education, therefore, needs to be about long-term mentorship and experiential learning.”
“Inspiring dynamic, respectful and compassionate global citizens”
We are many communities, but we are one. An environment of intercultural understanding and integrity. A place where everyone is involved, valued and happy. A hub of innovation, enabling creativity and contemporary learning. A community where individuals succeed and make a difference.
“Excellence in everything we do”
A dynamic NAE, International Baccalaureate Continiuum World School in South East Asia where everyone succeeds.
“Caring hearts, ambitious minds”
We believe in the active engagement of the whole community. We believe that contemporary learning takes place when we are creative, collaborative and connected. We also believe that we have a shared humanity and we need to demonstrate compassion and ethical responsibility by enriching each other through our differences.
