GEMS students are accepted by some of the world's most prestigious universities

A specialised education for boys and girls, ensures that the education we offer at Al Barsha National School prepares your daughters for a future where they are imbued with an inner confidence based on self-belief and awareness of their own strengths and talents and individuals. How is this achieved?

By allowing our students to take positions of responsibility from an early age, and experience what it is like to be leaders – classroom monitors, heads of sports teams, prefects, leaders of clubs and societies.

Our curriculum and co-curriculum is imaginatively designed to provide a wealth of opportunities where the students can take intellectual risks, ask questions, and make judgments in every area.

Such a life of daily challenge and opportunity will enable our students to learn from their experiences and understand their needed areas of development as well as their strengths, unconstrained by gender stereotypes.

These days, there's a lot more to a university education than obtaining a world class qualification alone. Here's how we prepare our students for university and the world of work:

  1. Development of employability skills: It's not just a degree employers look for. A GEMS student gains self-confidence, communication, initiative, team work and time management skills.
  2. Interest and experience in their future study courses: Have a look at how we prepare our Alumni for their university courses before they leave school.
  3. Improved career prospects: A higher education is a gateway to jobs in the future. Many organisations around the world employ GEMS Alumni. With tens of thousands of contacts all over the world, your child will find a connection wherever their career takes them.
  4. Development of personal and social skills: GEMS Core Values have been part of our DNA for over 55 years. With a GEMS education, your child will not just become a conscientious student, they'll also gain the confidence and independence to thrive at home, university and at work.

Whether we are lucky enough to teach your child for a few years or many more, the lessons they learn at GEMS will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
