Parents and guardians should be at the heart of any child's education. We value our parents' feedback and ensure they have the best experience at GIS.
"I chose the IB program because I am intrigued by the hands-on curriculum. I found it interesting how the concept of character and confidence-building is integrated into the curriculum. Academically, I can see my kids progressing; they are not rushed and neither am I. What I particularly like about this school is that the doors are always open to parents. Everything is discussed so openly, both problems and solutions. I would not want my kids to graduate from anywhere but GEMS International School - Al Khail"

"The most important asset any school can have are the people. We were very lucky with our teachers and assistant teachers in KG1D and KG2G. They are passionate, sensitive and amazing education professionals. They apply fascinating methods of learning and understanding the world around them to every lesson. Our boys love this school and I hope their learning and passion about this new world will only grow."

"We love the interactive nature of the IB curriculum, which gives our children a broad range of questioning and curiosity skills about the world around them in partnership with academic capability. The teaching staff are very engaged and always open to discuss ways to help the children learn effectively. Attitude is everything in building a good relationship with a school and GEMS International School – Al Khail excels in this regard. Friendly faces and a ‘can do’ attitude exist throughout the school, we are very pleased to be a part of the GEMS community."

"GEMS International School is very accommodating to children that come from non-English speaking countries and supports them in the integration process. The children at GEMS International are happy! They go to school with a smile on their face and it’s a pleasure to see the progress made by children throughout the year. Parents are kept involved daily through homework and presentations or events at GEMS International. The teachers are available and you can speak freely with them."
