GEMS World Academy (Singapore) prides itself in being truly international – in terms of both its students and globally experienced educators.
Linked to the GEMS Education global network of schools in 14 countries with more than 250,000 students, GEMS World Academy (Singapore) calls itself “Singapore’s international school for global students.” Its students are from around the world – there’s no dominant nationality, and the GWA teachers are recruited from a wide variety of countries. More importantly, the international curriculum allows students from all nationalities to learn while here and then progress their education when they return to their home countries.
1. International Educators
Committed, experienced and child-centred, GWA’s globally experienced teachers are the true difference. Its teachers are selected based on their broad international experience, their love of children and teaching children and their relevant high qualifications.
2. Balanced Education
All GWA students fully participate in Sports, Arts and Academics. This is a non-negotiable requirement for all children from Pre-K through Grade 12, and provides an allround balanced education and life experience.
3. Parent Engagement
GWA parents are active partners with the school in community and service, with frequent parent engagement opportunities. GWA actively engages with all parents from their first contact point with the school, when each parent meets the Head of Education and his leadership team. The GWA staff members believe the children are the most important people they work with, but it is the parents and the school together who make the kids’ education a true success.
4. Internationally Certified Curriculum
From Pre-K to grade 12, the GWA certification enables families to join the school from anywhere in the world, or to move anywhere in the world. Students enrolled in the school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes study subjects across a minimum of five key areas until graduation, providing them with multiple pathways for their future learning and employment.
