Last year, we received 90,000 applicants for teaching positions throughout the GEMS global network of international schools. Less than 1% of them were hired. When it comes to teaching your child, only the cream of teachers make the grade.
While academic qualifications are a passport to higher education, we firmly believe that a values-driven education is far more rewarding. The basis of our thinking is ‘Ad Vitam Paramus’ – ‘we are preparing for life’. We focus on developing a child’s character, creativity and moral compass.
GEMS students have been accepted into 860 universities in 49 different countries. These include 12 of the top 15 universities worldwide, 6 of the top 8 Ivy League universities and the top 50 universities in the UK.
The global network of award winning GEMS schools aims to be a superior, lifelong collaborator in your child’s education. Our students enjoy privileges like preferential placement in other GEMS schools, which enables a seamless GEMS education across the world.
We have access to the largest in-house education and professional development programme in the world. GEMS courses keep teaching staff abreast of the latest developments in best practices and research in education. The programme is key to ensuring the best possible academic outcomes for our students.
The facilities at GEMS World Academy (Singapore) raise the bar higher than ever. Apart from a 3D planetarium and an Olympic-sized swimming pool, our 'smart' facilities are designed to facilitate new methods of learning in and out of the classroom. Our IT infrastructure and technology resources are second to none – providing students with state-of-the-art tools to enjoy and engage more meaningfully with their curriculum.
International research shows us that the biggest single reason a child does well in their education is when the parents take an active and consistent interest in their learning at home. Encouraged by these findings, we have created a Parental Engagement Programme like no other. As parents, you will be kept abreast of all developments that concern your child’s progress. You will also take part in programmes designed to regularly review and strengthen their performance.
