We have been a part of the GFS family since 2017. Besides being an amazing school with incredibly supportive staff and great on-campus facilities, what makes it a gratifying experience as a parent at GFS is seeing my children grow academically as well as all-rounding in their areas of interest. GFS has students from 100+ nationalities which helps children to experience a beautiful diversity amongst their peers. As a parent I am so glad that we are a part of the HPL philosophy being implemented at GFS which helps all students to achieve their maximum potential and become high performance learners.

The teachers are fantastic and make sure that my child progresses well academically, socially and emotionally. There are 26 children in my child's class in FS and 2 adults and very happy with this ratio especially as schools with double the fees have around the same number of children. Very happy with my experience of GFS and would definitely recommend it, my expectations have been exceeded by the school. For the fees we pay no other school at this price comes close. The management are always around campus and are approachable and happy to listen to feedback.

GEMS Founders has wonderful teachers who really care for the students. My daughter is in FS1 and her teacher has given her the very best start to her education. The feedback I receive is detailed, personalised and frequent. The school has amazing resources and facilities and my daughter loves her school.

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

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.
