School Description

At GEMS Al Khaleej International School (GEMS AKIS) we resolutely believe that success stems from exceptional teaching practices, attentive administration, wonderful families and responsible students.

We have been bringing out the best in each student since 1992 by promoting a healthy balance between Islamic values, cultural heritage and 21st century learning skills. In order to achieve this we have established a culture of integrity that supports academic success and creates a community of lifelong learners. This, in tandem with a curriculum infused with social justice themes, allows children to develop the skills of global students who are ready for every challenge and opportunity.

GEMS Education is committed to providing quality instruction by placing an effective teacher in front of every child, an effective Principal at every school, and effective staff in all roles across the entire organization. GEMS AKIS represents a culmination of the innovative ideas and fresh perspectives generated by this philosophy, with its mission being to educate the next generation of international leaders.

We also hope the site expresses a little of the essence of the magnificent learning environment fostered by our dedicated teachers and gifted students.

Extra Curricular Activities

The school's enrichment program includes school extra-curricular activities (ECA), that take place during the day or after school on weekly basis. These activities provide opportunities for students to discover their talents and abilities, and to enable students to create and innovate.
