With a 100% IB Diploma pass rate and a soon-to-open, state-of-the-art campus, there’s lots to love about GESS. Come find out more about one of Singapore’s most diverse international schools, mama!
We recently told you what’s so great about International Baccalaureate (IB) education, mama, and now we want to tell you about one school that truly walks the walk and talks the talk. As one of the only non-profit international schools in Singapore, the German European School of Singapore (GESS) has garnered a reputation as one of the best IB schools in the Little Red Dot.
The proof is in the pudding, mama: GESS students racked up a 100% IB Diploma pass rate and an average score of 33.35 during the 2015/16 academic year – that’s well above the global average of 30.07!
Credit the safe, friendly and familiar environment that constantly challenges students to thrive, along with GESS’s renowned focus on language, a key tenet of the IB approach.
With students from over 50 countries represented and both German and English curriculum options, GESS offers a wide range of additional language support. This starts with the Language Enrichment Programme (LEP) at the Primary level, where students can select a weekly 90-minute language enrichment class, and continues on to the Secondary School, where GESS promotes mother tongue language acquisition to ensure students don’t lose a vital connection with their home culture.
Given that its bright students head off to top universities across Europe, GESS also offers helpful pastoral programmes to help prepare them for cultural re-entry to Europe in addition to letting them know what they can expect academically at European universities.
Even if university’s a long way off, mama, there’s plenty more to see at GESS, most notably its forthcoming brand new, custom-built K-12 campus that’s opening up in Bukit Timah in 2018. The school’s two current campuses will be consolidated into one purpose-built school with brand new facilities all designed to cater to future generations with state-of-the-art sports fields and halls, a swimming pool, music and drama facilities, age- and subject-specific classrooms, a design technology studio, and so much more!
Keen to learn more, mama? Visit GESS’s upcoming open day on 22 November, happening at both the Main Campus and Junior School Campus in Bukit Timah. In addition to hearing from current students, faculty and parents, you can also set up a personal tour by contacting the Admissions Department.
We know every mama wants more than just academic success for her child, she wants a truly fulfilling educational experience. Come find out how GESS can give you both!
