Whilst this school offers extensive facilities - planetarium, recording studio, olympic sized swimming pool, etc. the real value in this school is in the community. This school feels like a family, and it really is a wonderful place to be.

GEMS World Academy Dubai has changed a lot in the 6 years I have been there. There are some good teachers, but they are few and far between. Also, the general environment is not great. Most of the students don't respect a lot of the teachers, and the students are more focused on material things, like designer bags, rather than the schoolwork. The school has also become more test-oriented, rather than focusing on the student, and tries to impress the government, often at the risk of the students.
