Welcome to GEMS United School!
We are a growing American curriculum school located in Dubai Sports City, focused on creating curious learners that are inspired to reach beyond ourselves. As a community, this means our students will develop as independent learners who can think critically about the world. For our students to develop in this way, our staff models and explicitly teaches students in ways that promote curiosity and a passion for learning.
The school community is focused on a culture of kindness that permeates every corner of the campus. Ensuring that students develop not only academically, but socially and emotionally is critical to our work. We are committed to advocating, teaching and respecting a diverse student body from cultures throughout the world, to foster peace, justice and global understanding. We believe that there is genius in every child. Our work is to nurture and spark curiosity with our curriculum and innovative learning opportunities.
Personally, while being my first year at GEMS United School, this is my fourth year in the United Arab Emirates. We moved to Al Ain in 2016 and are originally from Chicago, Illinois. My wife and three boys (aged 6, 4, and 1) are very excited to be a part of the GEMS United School community.
My hope for my children is the same as my hope for yours. I want them to be passionate learners who are excited about the future because they believe they have unlimited potential to follow their dreams. Our children will be very well prepared academically, but more importantly, they will be equipped with the GEMS Jewels of Kindness and Respect (Respect, Empathy, Compassion, and Helpfulness). Our children are the future. I hope the world will be ready, because our children will definitely be more than ready for the world.
I encourage you to come learn more about GEMS United School. This is where you belong.
