Looking for an international school in Singapore for your child?
Step into the lobby at GEMS World Academy (Singapore) and you’ll notice words such as “tolerant” and “confident” plastered across the gallery walls.
Clearly, while academic achievements are important to a student’s success, GEMS World Academy (Singapore) is also a firm believer of a balanced values-driven education across Academics, Arts and Sports that addresses your child’s developmental and social needs.
And in today’s cosmopolitan world, this means nurturing them into “internationally-minded” global citizens.
Indeed, uprooting your child from his or her home country might mean moving them away from their extended family, friends, social circle and even culture, which is why it’s important to cultivate in them an appreciation for their individuality as well as that of others.
GEMS World Academy (Singapore) subscribes to this very belief. With over 40 nationalities represented by their staff and student body, and with no one dominant nationality, they build upon this impressive cultural diversity within the school community to give your child a truly international education.
Putting internationalism at the heart of teaching, their educators encourage students to be independent thinkers, teaching them to understand and celebrate both their own and others’ cultures and values.
But this doesn’t mean an erosion of your child’s roots!
Rather, students are lovingly nurtured into active citizens of today’s and tomorrow’s global society, true to their roots and emphatic of others. The teachers at GEMS World Academy (Singapore) interact with students with sincerity and compassion to show that they’re appreciated as unique individuals – something we personally witnessed during our visit to the school campus – so you know your child is in great and caring hands.
Through their Parent Engagement Programme, you’re encouraged by the school to be a key part of your child’s learning adventure as well – from Parents’ Coffee Mornings to their symbolic Uniting Nations event, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved. As such, not only your child, but you too can immerse yourself into this melting pot of cultures.
GEMS World Academy (Singapore) will ensure your child quickly and easily adjusts not only academically, but also personally to a new and exciting life in Singapore. An international education as such is truly life-defining and is what sets GEMS World Academy (Singapore) apart from others.
