Strongest Language Programme among international schools in Singapore
One of the unique features of GESS as an MYP school is the curriculum provision for students to take a third language lesson within their academic programme. This feature of the Middle School at GESS is in accordance with the middle schooling language requirements of many tertiary education providers in continental Europe. GESS has the strongest Language Programme within the MYP among the international schools in Singapore as teaching languages occupies 40% of the teaching time.
Mother Tongue Programme
At GESS we understand the need to encourage and develop our Middle School students in their mother tongue. Indeed we incorporate within this the need for students to understand their mother culture and culture. This is exemplified in our Dutch Mother Tongue Programme and Danish Mother Tongue Programme. Both language programmes are integrated into the curriculum during regular school hours. Needless to say, GESS offers an excellent German Mother Tongue Programme.
At GESS, we support a wide range of mother tongue languages through our established ‘Mother Tongue Support Programme’. This programme was developed and is monitored by our experienced Language Coordinators who have an established relationship with a team of mother tongue language tutors.
