International School

We’ve been living in Singapore since May 2013. Ujjwala has been attending Invictus International School Dempsey since Grade 1 in 2020. We’re looking forward to sending Yash, too, when the time comes. We’re extremely happy with the way the school has organised the learning experiences for children. Amid COVID restrictions, the teachers adapted to new teaching methods very quickly and made sure that they were engaging and fun for the students. Ujjwala is extremely happy and enjoys going to school every day. When we were looking to enrol our children, we undertook thorough research on the international schooling ecosystem in Singapore. Beyond visiting schools and speaking at length with the administrators and faculty, we spoke with several parents who are part of our social network. We sought value in terms of fees without compromising the learning experience, and quality was one of the most critical factors. Another important criterion was the diversity of the student cohort as we believe that diversity brings interactions and

experiences that enrich young minds. We also wanted a school within proximity of our Holland Road/Botanic Gardens neighbourhood. There’s an active Parent Teacher Association where I (Priya) have been the Arts Committee Head since Ujjwala started with the school. In 2021, together with other PTA members, we organised an arts competition where all the children in the school displayed their artworks at REDSEA Gallery over a weekend in April. The school may not have the usual extracurricular activities or sports infrastructure that schools with large campuses offer. Still, the academic experience, which is IPC/Cambridge based, is on par with schools that charge a much higher fee. We would certainly recommend the school very strongly to other families.
