Our children have been attending GEMS since we arrived in Singapore in 2017. All four of them have different reasons why they love GEMS, and they all hope to continue their entire schooling there. For some, their favourite thing about school is their teacher. For others, it’s the theatre productions, the sporting programmes and the endless opportunities for projects in the design lab. Our children have been involved in drama, choir, Rugby 7s Academy, track and field, running, soccer, rock climbing, aeronautics, school camps, international sporting competitions, and both French and Mandarin second language development programs. They have also embraced theatre performance, stage productions, and developed singing, acting, dancing and backstage production skills.
Each of our children has grown and developed diverse talents through the guidance of the dedicated teaching staff. We’re especially impressed by the holistic approach the school takes to education – it maintains an exceptional IB programme and a great balance between the academic, emotional and social experience of school life. The professional teachers and staff make attending school an experience that my children look forward to.
We know that the experiences and the friendships that our family has gained through GEMS will last a lifetime. We’re happy to recommend it to other families as we know that the school and its community are a large part of our children’s experiences in Singapore.
