Our little GEMS really is a gem between schools in Abu Dhabi. It provides a safe and happy place for our little ones to start their journey of good quality education. We have a wonderful and very active parents community that does so much for our children and school throughout the year. Our always smiling Principle, his great office team and all amazing teachers are very friendly and approachable which to a parent makes a big difference when it comes to getting feedback, asking questions, dealing with issues or just having a small pet talk on the field.
I would highly recommend it to anyone and would not change for any other school.
I have both my son and daughter at GWA Abu Dhabi and honestly, cannot praise the school enough! My son has been there for 2 years. At the end of last year (KG2-4) he was behaving really strangely and was having problems with me leaving him in the mornings. The school tried everything to accommodate him, held numerous meetings with us, supported us by suggesting multiple methods of dealing with his behaviour, and were really patient. Mr Jay, the school principal, is a real professional who cares about the students and shows that. I'm surprised he even remembers the names of so many children! The teachers I encountered are real professionals with experience and have a lot to offer in terms of educating our children to be good citizens and human beings, which I believe is a priority over any high academic achievement, which I believe the school is also providing. The atmosphere is nurturing and positive, supportive and encouraging. The ONLY negative comment I have to add is the cost involved. The fees are really high and it is with great sadness that I will have to move the kids to another school after the 2014/2015 academic year. If you can afford it, it's really an exemplary school, one which I would have loved to attend if I were a child myself!
It is now 2016, I still have my son and daughter at GWA and still feel the same about the school. Shame that our lovely principal Mr. Jay is leaving us. Amazing place!
