If you were asked to recall the most significant memory of your schooling days, it probably wouldn’t be a Maths formula you learnt in class.
Perhaps it was the time you performed together with the school band on stage after months of preparation, or the time you cried tears of laughter with your group of friends over a silly joke.
The bottom line is: the best memories are forged with people. And it’s the enriching, culturally inclusive, and welcoming community – both teachers and students – that makes GEMS World Academy (Singapore) stand out as an international school in Singapore.
At GEMS World Academy (Singapore), it is their teachers’ belief that every child is talented in their own way, and it’s their job to bring out that talent in each and every one of them. Each child is given individual attention and support, fostering a unique sense of community in an academically, sporting and artistically fulfilling education environment.
This is even extended outside the classroom – something we witnessed during our visit to the school – when teachers struck up conversations with students like friends do.
Your child will find him/herself right at home with their fellow students as well. With over 45 nationalities within the student body and no one dominant nationality, every child – whether native English speaker or not, and regardless of background – can easily fit into the GEMS community.
Student life is dynamic and engaging, and every interaction is in itself an educational cultural exchange. Each year, GEMS World Academy (Singapore) hosts a Uniting Nations event, a day of cultural exchange and performances that the students, teachers, and parents alike look forward to. With other special events like sports days and field trips, learning happens not only in the classroom but also outside its walls, making school an enjoyable experience.
And this community finds its home in the GEMS World Academy (Singapore) campus in Yishun, with world-class facilities such as a whopping 750-seater auditorium, state-of-the-art S.T.E.M labs, sports facilities such as a sports hall, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and more, which are integral to providing the best learning journey for your child.
We don’t know about you, but we wish we were young again, and we know where we’d want to go to school!
