Singapore is a beautiful melting pot of cultures and nationalities so why should your child’s school be any different? We find out how GEMS World Academy sets itself apart!
We think it’s pretty amazing that the students at GEMS World Academy (Singapore) (GWA) come from all around the world with not one dominant nationality. Currently, the top five nationalities represented at the school are American, British, Indian, Australasian and Japanese, with over 40 other nationalities representing a diverse student population. Translation: GWA provides a truly international learning environment, with international teachers from around the globe.
Boasting an international IB/IGCSE curriculum which welcomes students from all backgrounds, GWA can prepare your children for tertiary education anywhere in the world. What’s more, those same students will have gained an international and balanced mindset to enable them to collaborate with people across different cultures with ease.
GWA’s international educators are the true difference, mama! Showing a strong commitment to education and love of teaching children, GWA’s teachers are recruited from many different countries, including America, UK, Australia and Europe. Teachers are carefully selected based on their broad international experience, passion for teaching and their high qualifications.
School-life balance is key here! 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 because GWA believes a balanced education and a well-rounded life go hand-in-hand.
We haven’t forgotten you, mama! Parent engagement is an integral part of the GWA experience, with plenty of opportunities to actively partner with the school in your child’s education and community. From the first point of contact with the school where each parent meets the Head of Education and the school’s leadership team, GWA stays involved with its families and shares a common vision with parents: the children are the most important, but the parents and GWA build the foundation to make their education a true success!
GWA’s internationally certified curriculum enables families to join the school from anywhere in the world and to move anywhere in the world (whoever said change is hard?) Students enrolled in GWA’s International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes study subjects across a minimum of five key areas until graduation, providing them with multiple pathways toward their future learning and employment.
To top it all off, GWA is part of a huge support system being a World Academy school within the global GEMS Education network of over 80 schools in more than 10 countries with more than 250,000 students!
You’ve got to see it to believe it, mama! GWA hosts weekly school tours every Tuesday and some Saturdays where parents can meet with their outstanding educators, including the Head of Education himself, and also check out their world-class campus boasting a 750-seat auditorium, rock climbing wall, Olympic-sized pool and S.T.E.M lab!
The next GWA Open Day is on Saturday, 16 April 2016 so be sure to register here, mama! GWA has got an exciting line up of parenting talks, masterclasses and fun activities to keep your kiddos entertained while you speak with their dedicated leadership team and learn more about the GWA difference!
