GESS is an international school in Singapore founded by parents for the community

Founded in 1971, German European School Singapore (GESS) is a world class, not for profit International School in Singapore that offers both the German Curriculum stream and the IB Curriculum stream.

Currently, more than 1850 students are learning at our international school supported by more than 400 full time and part time academic and administrative staff members.

In August 2018, GESS moved to a modern new school campus located at the edge of Singapore’s largest nature reserve in west Singapore.

GESS has strong European foundations and believes in developing confident, forward-looking students through a celebration of respect, openness and diversity. GESS is recognised for its languages and offers a choice between two main curricula: the German Abitur or the English-speaking International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.

The school caters to students of all ages, starting from two years old to graduation at 18 years. GESS is a private school association led by an elected committee and the school management.
