GEMS World Academy (Singapore)
Interests in sports and music are supported, with all students encouraged to learn an instrument from Grade 1.
“We have enjoyed our experience with GEMS. The facilities are fantastic and it was an easy decision to enrol Nelson at the school. He has benefited in many ways during his day-to-day school life. The facilities include a 50-metre and a 25-metre pool where he learns swimming as part of the curriculum, as well as a soccer pitch where he plays with his friends. There is also a large auditorium where I have attended many presentations by Nelson, and music rooms where he learns the violin.
All of Nelson’s teachers have been fantastic and easy to speak to, and they care genuinely about his needs. The school environment is also very personal. From the time we had a tour of the school we were made to feel valued and welcomed. We were impressed by the leadership, particularly Head of School David Edwards. The curriculum doesn’t just focus on academics; it also supports interests in sports and music. I like that all students are encouraged to learn a musical instrument from Grade 1. At GEMS, children learn about the different cultures of students in the school and celebrate the traditions of different countries.
We learnt about the school from friends who enrolled their three sons. We really like the friendly approach of the leadership of the school and would definitely recommend it to other families. We’ve now been at GEMS for two years and have no regrets. Nelson is loving school and has made many friends.”
