Growing up is not easy: whatever the difficulties, differences or disabilities, students are entitled to personalised support.
GAIN (Support and Integration Group)

The International French School (Singapore) is one of the few institutions overseas that has a structure dedicated to students with special educational needs. Its aim is to prevent and reduce social and learning difficulties that students may face, by providing specific information and guidance to teachers and parents. Students with disabilities and/or specific learning needs can benefit from the specific support schemes.
