Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Established in 2007, GEMS American Academy – Abu Dhabi, is a modern American curriculum international school located in the heart of Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi in the UAE. We welcome pupils aged from 3-18, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, into our classrooms, offering a world-class education in line with high United States Common Core State Standards.

From our planetarium to our music technology lab, our campus in Khalifa City A is equipped with outstanding, cutting—edge facilities, designed to help our pupils get the absolute most from their education – and from their natural abilities. 

We're passionate about providing our students with internationally recognised qualifications that give them a ticket to a bright, global future. But we're also committed to helping young people of all backgrounds and abilities discover their “personal best”, whether they're a talented swimmer or an aspiring actor.

On the sports pitch, pupils at GEMS American Academy – Abu Dhabi have the opportunity to play, compete and work together with their peers. Our outdoor pitches, indoor gymnasiums, swimming pool and indoor courts give all pupils the chance to find their favourite fitness class, from football to dance.

But it's not all fun and games! We also believe in nurturing creativity and curiosity. Perhaps your youngster is crazy about astronomy? Our planetarium will fuel their interest. Maybe your child has a musical talent? Our recording studio and diverse music classes will help them unleash it!
