It's a very good school with reasonable fees. The teachers ate very engaging with the students and they are very good at creating activities and challenging the kids to learn more in a fun exciting way.

My son has been in GFS since FS2, now he’s in year 5. The way he has progressed and developed is amazing. It was the same reason, we put our second son too in GFS this year.

In GFS, teachers are trustworthy. They have a sense of responsibility، they motivate children to do their best, and they observe the students very carefully in all various ways educationally, health, behaviour, what they need...

My kid was was in this school (Gems Founders Al Mizhar) and I would never recommend this school to anyone . They are running this school like a corporate company or like a bank . They never consider any concerns of parents (mine) even if it’s curriculum related . They are only concerned more about fees and they do what they will. Most of the teachers are arrogant . They will send u several emails reminding about fees even though you pay the fee on time. I transferred my school from there couple of months back and moved to another school . Now I am relieved and happy .

I don’t know why there are so many negative reviews. The only issue is the pick up and drop off area being too crowded. If you take the bus this wouldn’t be an issue. From a Secondary students point of view I can say that this school has helped my average grades go from a D to an A/B. I never thought i would be capable of this but all my lessons have motivated me to study and actually work hard. The teachers are really friendly and professional and so is all the staff including this heads and the principal. Mr. Matthew actually engages with students unlike other principals I’ve seen. Not all the students are nice but what school has students that are entirely nice? I’ve studied in different schools and this is one of the best I’ve been to. I’m doing my boards this year and I’m confident I’ll do well thanks to my teachers. Founders deserves so much more credit for how great of a school it is. - The student POV you needed to hear

British curriculam nice school with good teachers. Growing in numbers conveniently located behind Barsha police station. Overall provides value for money. Alond with studies sports is taken care with equal importance. They do not have their swimming pool can have one for overall development of children. Loved the atmosphere khda rating is good. Appreciated with the number of years in operation.

it’s been not even a year that my children are at GFS al Barsha and they just love it.They look forward going to school every single day and are so obsessed by what school is doing and new things coming up in school that over the weekend they look at school videos and make sure I watch them. The principal Mr Mathew and heads of departments Mr John and Mr Ian and their teams are doing a fantastic job. It’s so nice to see my children learn and involved in all the school project. Their is always room for improvement. I wish you all the best for the new academic year.

I am really disappointed this year with school. My daughter finish her class by 2:20 and reaching home by 3:50 pm by school bus eventhough I am living close to school within the radius of 05KM. School is very crowded and losing focus on quality of education and upbringing of child's.

Horrible school, It is a nightmare to drop your children in the morning and it is bothersome. The education is abhorrent and dreadful. I am terrified for all the new children looking for a better future. This school is not a value for your money. Secondly, the school is crowded with 4k+ children and it is incredibly small. Classes are 40+. I do NOT recommend.
