We are part of a global community of schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging international education. Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four programs: the PYP, the MYP, the DP or the CP. We are also proud to be a CIS Accredited School

We are committed to delivering a continuous IB education for all students through the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) the IB Career-related Programme (CP), thereby providing the ideal preparation for entry of the world's top universities.

The GEMS IB education strategy, spearheaded by the former Director-General of the IB, has seen our UAE schools consistently score above-average in the IB assessments over recent years in comparison to the rest of the world.

All our teachers receive rigorous and continuous IB training and we have IB-accredited trainers.

Our school was purpose-built to deliver the IB. Developments include a Center of Excellence for Aviation, Aeronautics and Space, PYP Innovation Hub, Space Lab, 11 dedicated science labs, fitness suite and more.
