The only school in UAE that managed to produce an excellent hybrid between the British curriculum and IB. To understand the advantages of the British curriculum taught through the IB philosophy you really need to experience it, GEMS World Academy Abu Dhabi is the school to go for! Education is no longer about dictating theory. It’s about giving children the skills to excel professionally, personally, and socially. Here at GEMS World Academy I have seen this in real life. My children surprises me everyday with new skills they have learned/ gained during their time at GEMS World Academy. I cannot recommend GEMS WORLD ACADEMY enough; it is the ideal school for your child.

Mind boggling headboards, they have a tremendous get-together of Laminates which engage the purchase to pick with a wide range. value it. Much invigorating with the brisk establishment.

Very good school. The teachers are great and the kids enjoy their education. The school does a lot to support each student. We are very happy with their approach to teaching and their parent-teacher communication.

A very good school. The Principal, teachers and assistants are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. My child has been attending this school for 4 years now and we plan to stay. There's a good balance between academic and personal development focus. It is a bit expensive though.

Absolutely disappointed with their dismissive attitude. At first, I was told they had a spot in FS1 and was encouraged to apply, however the Principal's rejection without even offering an assessment or alternative option to apply at a later date was really done in an insensitive and unwelcoming manner considering my son's age group. Other decent schools would at least offer a tour or include us on a waiting list! I'm ready to notify the founder himself as this completely defies GEMS's philosophy. I'm shocked.
