Why Expat Families In Singapore Love This International School Of The Future

27 March 2017

Designed for globally minded students, GEMS World Academy (Singapore) provides outstanding learning opportunities to its international student community, which is represented by more than 60 nationalities.

GWA (Singapore)’s students are taught in an environment of mutual respect, transparency and engagement across academics, the arts and sports.

GWA (Singapore)’s teachers use their international teaching experience to enhance learning for the Pre-K to Grade 12 programmes.

In 2016, GWA (Singapore)’s school leadership team attended the BERG Icons of Learning Awards night. This independent group conducts research and programmes focused on excellence in various industries, and awarded GWA with the 2016 Icons of Learning Award for the Leading International School in Singapore.

This external recognition of GWA (Singapore) is a result of significant trust by parents and positive engagement by students as well as considerable sacrifice, focus and passion from staff across the school.

Here’s why GWA is popular with many expat families in Singapore:

1. The Future School

Programmes, such as its groundbreaking Blended Learning, STEM initiative with Carnegie-Mellon University, focus on entrepreneurship – and ensure that the education its students explore today, supports their aspirations for the future.

2. Child-Focused

GWA (Singapore)’s globally experienced teachers make a true difference for its diverse students.

3. Internationally Certified Curriculum

Its International Baccalaureate (IB) World School status, Cambridge International School accreditation and EduTrust certification enable families to join the school from, and move to, anywhere in the world. 


What parents say

“Based on my research, GWA (Singapore) was the only international school with plenty of opportunities, international exposure and scholarships for students gifted in sports and the arts. To me, the best gauge of a good school is when your child is clearly inspired by her teachers, enjoys learning and is enthusiastic about going back to school day after day, semester after semester.”
