From the moment we found out that we would be moving to Singapore, our first concern was to ensure that all 3 of our children would be in a school that would be able to accommodate all of their individual talents and needs. It was rather daunting being faced with all the options that were presented to us, however from the moment we stepped inside Dover Court we knew we had found the right school. It’s homely and welcoming feel from the staff and students alike was exactly what we were looking for, along with great facilities which are also improving year on year. Our needs for our children ranged from the highly academic to the creative and dramatic and Dover Court has met all these needs. Our children are thriving in an environment where they feel safe and confident to express and challenge themselves to their full potential.
This is a completely unique school in Singapore where it is still relatively small and can afford to have that family feel, where everyone knows everyone else and they all care about them, yet has incredible space and facilities where children are able to run free and participate in all sorts of sports, from track and athletics to swimming (in a covered pool) and yoga. Along with its collaboration with the Julliard Performing Arts School, it truly encompasses the whole child approach to life-long learning. The whole staff, from teacher to nurses and Mr Short, take an immense pride and care for the children in a way that I have rarely seen in another environment and are always on call to help in any shape, matter or form.
The staff, parents, and children of Dover Court International School have most certainly been an incredible asset in our lives and have definitely been a key role in ensuring we have settled happily into our new life here in Singapore!
