Formerly known as the German European School Singapore, GESS is a not-for-profit, international school that offers two curricula under one roof. The German stream follows the German school curriculum and offers all German school leaving certificates, while the English stream follows the senior International Baccalaureate programmes – the MYP and the IBDP.
GESS offers its Grade 8 and 9 students the opportunity to complete a two-year engineering programme, run in collaboration with the Junior Engineer Academy. It also has a strong language learning programme that includes mother tongue classes in English, German, Dutch and Danish. In August 2018, GESS moved to a new purpose-built campus in Bukit Timah with facilities for kindergarten through to Grade 12. Located on the doorstep of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, this attractive and environmentally friendly campus teaches students in a variety of learning pods and collaborative spaces.
What the school says: “There is room for every interest and talent in GESS, regardless of whether this is in academics, music, sports, research, design or more.”
