Education and Learning

GEMS World Academy offers the international children of Abu Dhabi an IB program taught by a staff of primarily North American and western-trained teachers.

GEMS World Academy is an IB world school, with many of our teachers having taught in schools around the world. Our teachers have gained their teaching qualifications from western universities, with many continuing to learn through Masters and Doctorate programs. With over 60 student nationalities, we believe that the diversity of our student body provides the foundation for creating internationally minded citizens in our rapidly changing world. We make the effort to appreciate and even celebrate our differences.

Building an inclusive and caring community is integral to our work. As we develop each child's personal feelings of safety, competence and self worth, we emphasize the development of caring and respectful attitudes towards others.

An atmosphere of trust enables children to question, to take risks, to collaborate, to assume responsibility for independent work and to pursue individual interests. We explore, as much as possible, all the cultures that this world has to offer and at the same time not only explore our differences but realize our common oneness. We believe our commitment to advocating, teaching and respecting a diverse student body from cultures throughout the world, fosters peace, justice and global understanding.
