Bradenton Preparatory Academy has now been rebranded to GEMS United School.

The school starts the year with a new name and a new leadership team as well.

Senior Leadership includes four Americans and one Canadian, with education experience in top-tier American, Canadian, and international day and boarding schools.

Katharine Vavpetic, Head of GEMS United School, said: “We have focused on personalised learning for years and our new “American PLUS” program is testament to our expertise. Students select their learning paths based on their own data and the learning opportunities presented. The wonder, energy, and connectedness of all our learners is what makes our school special.”

A premium fee level American curriculum based school, GEMS United is located in Dubai Sports City, with approximately 550 students in grades PreK-12.

The school offers 12 Advanced Placement courses, multiple humanities and science electives, 28 athletic teams, choirs, bands, student councils and newspapers, partnership with The Danish Language School for heritage language courses and a full string orchestra.
