One of the oldest schools in the country and the flagship school of GEMS, GEMS Our Own Dubai has been providing outstanding education and support to students from across the globe for over five decades. We celebrated our Golden Jubilee on April 09, 2018, marking a major milestone - from a single classroom with 27 students and three teachers, the school has grown to become the largest single campus girls’ school in the Middle East, with over 10,000 students and 500 staff.
The School is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, India, with an enrollment over 10,000 students from 17 nationalities. Co-education is followed from Kindergarten to Grade 4, with boys admitted only in these grades. It is a “girls only” school from Grades 5 to 12.
We pride ourselves in offering an all-encompassing learning experience that molds our students into young adults who are achievers of the highest order in almost every field. In addition to unrivaled academic standards, we also encourage a healthy combination of sports and extra-curricular activities – providing a holistic education that prepares our students for life, as well as examinations. The School has been rated ‘Very Good’ by the DSIB for 8th consecutive year now.
