A very warm welcome to the GEMS World Academy – Dubai, a modern, spacious and well established school that teaches children from pre-kindergarten to grade 12.
Founded in 2008 as a member of the GEMS network of schools, this independent school has gone from strength to strength and now welcomes over 2,000 students from over 90 countries every single day.
Located on Al Khail Road in the Al Barsha South area of Dubai, GEMS World Academy is conveniently located a short drive from the Meadows, Springs, Lakes and Arabian Ranches developments as well as both the Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall.
To reflect the international standing of our school and the cosmopolitan nature of the city of Dubai, all our students follow the excellent International Baccalaureate (IB) programme, which is recognised and accepted by colleges and universities around the world.
The IB is split into four programmes: the Primary Years Programme for students aged 3 to 12; the Middle Years Programme for students aged 12 to 16; the Diploma Programme; and the Career Programme, which is a qualification for entrance into further education.
The school’s large campus is home to an outstanding range of facilities, which includes a 400m athletics track, tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a 620 seat auditorium, a green-screen room, a recording studio and our very own 3D planetarium. We also a run a ‘Bring Your Own Educational Device’ programme, which encourages tech integration across all subject areas.
GEMS World Academy offers an extensive Language Institute and Entrepreneurship Club in addition to a vast variety of after-school activities. The after-school activities include clubs and teams in sports, arts and academics. In many cases the core activities will be staffed by highly experienced GWA staff as Internal ASA’s. External ASA’s, such as golf, swimming, cross-country, basketball, rock-climbing, horseback riding, skiing, dance, martial arts, and more, are also provided on or off campus by external companies. Intercultural understanding involves recognizing and reflecting on one’s own perspective, as well as the perspectives of others. In our own highly diverse international community the learning of, not only another language, but the preservation and understanding of one’s mother tongue is critical. GEMS World Academy is proud to offer 13 different mother tongue language courses for our students as part of the curriculum; Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, French, Italian, Swedish, Hindi, German, Turkish, Korean, Dutch and Portuguese.
