GEMS Core Values
GEMS Education’s multi-faceted approach to learning prepares students for the rigors of higher learning and equips them with the skills and versatility they require for professional employment.
We believe that a quality education is about Ad Vitam Paramus - ‘preparing for life’. The GEMS approach to learning is one which focuses on academic excellence and also on helping students develop their character, values, personal leadership and the spirit of enterprise necessary for them to achieve their full potential as global citizens and leaders of the future.
Over the last four years alone, GEMS students have been accepted into 590 universities in 41 countries. Graduating GEMS students have been accepted by some of the most prestigious universities and colleges around the world. GEMS students have gone to 12 out of the top 15 universities in the world and 36 of the top 50 universities in the U.S. In the last ten years alone, GEMS students have won over 400 international and regional awards for academics, sports and the arts. Furthermore, all our schools significantly exceed all national and international benchmarks in student outcomes.
GEMS values-driven education is expressed through our four core values which are woven into every curricula offered by GEMS Schools and are at the core of our DNA. They are not symbolic, we live and breathe them. We encourage independent learning, empowering students to take on responsibility. Through our values our students become confident, tolerant, resilient people of integrity, capable of both leadership and compassion. Through our CSR initiatives, GEMS students also develop a social conscience. They are taught the values and responsibilities needed to become active members of the community, something which the modern world is desperate for.
Empowering Students with a Global and Local Perspective
Accepting that We are All Different, Recognising that We are All the Same
Developing each student’s individuality and entrepreneurial spirit in order to discover their potential
We encourage students to explore and question, to seek solutions, to make informed decisions and solve problems, to demonstrate tenacity and to express themselves confidently.
GEMS aims to develop each student’s potential and we offer extensive opportunities for students to assume leadership roles. We promote the mindset and skills that equip individuals for entrepreneurship. We look to find the strengths in every individual and we encourage every student to aspire to be the best they can be in their own, special areas of excellence.
Developing Skills for the Future
Our values are woven into every school programme and are expressed through a multitude of activities which are designed to hone individual talents, grow skills and aspirations.
