Dover Court In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools -

We moved to Sin­ga­pore for my hus­band’s work, and our chil­dren started at­tend­ing Dover Court in Jan­uary 2017. We were amazed at how warm and open the school was. On the chil­dren’s sec­ond day, Ms Ri­naldi asked me how my chil­dren were set­tling in. I was amazed that she even knew who I was, let alone my chil­dren’s names since we were so new.

My hus­band and I have been im­pressed by the level of care the teach­ers have shown to­wards our chil­dren. Mov­ing from a large school to a smaller one has shown us how much more per­son­alised and fam­ily-ori­ented the school is. Our kids love their new school ex­pe­ri­ence. The class sizes for up­per lev­els are small with a low stu­dent-teacher ra­tio – this is ex­tremely ap­peal­ing to us. The stu­dents them­selves have also been welcoming to our kids and sup­port one an­other’s achieve­ments. Dover Court is very familyfriendly and we feel very grate­ful to be part of such a won­der­ful com­mu­nity.

When I was searching for an in­ter­na­tional school, I liked the fact that the school wasn’t as big as our pre­vi­ous school, as im­pres­sive as it was. We felt that we didn’t want our kids to get lost or over­looked in a large school. We would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend Dover Court as the level of care and teach­ing is out­stand­ing – we feel that our chil­dren are in a very car­ing, sup­port­ive and non-judge­men­tal en­vi­ron­ment that en­cour­ages them to do their best. The mo­ment we walked around the school, we were con­vinced that we wanted to be part of it. Just take a look and see how happy all the chil­dren

The stu­dents have been welcoming to our kids, and they all sup­port each other’s achieve­ments.
