    GEMS (Singapore)?


We are more than just an IB school


Students at GEMS (Singapore) receive the International Baccalaureate® (IB) continuum of personalised education from Kindergarten to Grade 12. This creates a unique opportunity for a truly international learning perspective that will expand your child’s knowledge and broaden their experience with other cultures and beliefs.

A GEMS education empowers your child for a lifetime of learning and provides extensive exposure to a variety of subjects such as the arts, music, sports, design, technology and STEM, developing a range of competencies and dispositions that include skills for thinking, research, problem-solving, creativity and innovation. 


What makes GEMS (Singapore) a unique place to study?

Our student population comprises more than 60 nationalities with no one dominant culture or background. Our Education leadership team and teachers know every child and family. Families, teachers and students are the foundation of a strong and supportive community. At GEMS (Singapore), we encourage an environment that is engaging for both parents and children, as we believe that the more you engage, the more rewarding your experience will be. 


A broad and balanced education

We aim to provide a high-quality international education consisting of four International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes united by the IB’s philosophy and approaches to teaching and learning.
