    Hi, I think you should include GEMS World Academy (Singapore) as well in this article. My family moved to Singapore in 2014 and we are really glad that we chose GEMS as the school for my two sons.

    While we entered GEMS with some reservations, they have far exceeded our expectations in every way. We are very pleased with the education our boys are getting at GEMS.

    The teachers and staff are top notch and the facilities can’t be beat.

      Hi Cyndi,
      Many thanks for your sharing your thoughts on GEMS, Singapore. We would certainly like to include any International Schools in Singapore that get such a great recommendation from a parent, in particular! Very useful and helpful for all our parents considering schools for their little ones. Thanks again for your valuable insight.
