GEMS World Academy (Singapore) has created an environment in which creative, entrepreneurial and innovation skills are at the foundation of the curriculum.
A truly international school with students from more than 50 nationalities, GEMS (Singapore) is part of the GEMS Education group of schools, which has nearly 60 years of global history.
GEMS (Singapore)’s team of experienced educators are practitioners with an energising attitude. The school provides quality education at its state-of-the-art campus, and aims to nurture students’ academic, sporting and artistic talents. It also offers a supportive environment with suitable conditions for learning; positive social, emotional and character development; and for parents to become engaged in the school.
GEMS (Singapore) offers a continuum of education frameworks and courses that are broad and balanced. It provides a world-class, international education consisting of three of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes: Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the IB Diploma Programme (DP), which are united by the IB’s philosophy and approaches to teaching and learning.
“It is an honour and pleasure to be part of the GEMS (Singapore) community. Our family was welcomed with open arms by the faculty and staff who made the transition for our three children seamless. Moving to another country and changing schools is always challenging and families must be ready for the unexpected. We are grateful that we made the best choice for our family to join an environment of respect, transparency and engagement.” – Trevor and Erica Parra, parents to Gavin, 10, Grade 4, Grant, 5, KG2, and Tegan, 4, KG1
