Situated in the coastal city of Alexandria, GEMS Academy Alexandria (GAA) was established in 2011 and offers a high quality education system from Pre-play to Year 7 (British Division) and from Petite Section to CM2 (French Division). Our current enrollment is 552 / between 2.5 – 12.5 years.
Our purpose built school is both modern and spacious and our projection for the school is to enroll 1700 students by 2022.
GAA only employs highly qualified and experienced expatriate class teachers who are responsible for delivering the core subjects as well as being responsible for pastoral care. Our classrooms are bright, spacious and well ventilated and we like to keep our class sizes small so that each child has better access to learning. At GAA we have a 2-adult per class policy at all times; in each of our classes we always have a teacher and a teaching assistant available to ensure that the academic and social needs of your child is catered for.
At GAA we firmly believe that for children to learn effectively they need to be encouraged to participate in both inquiry and project based learning. We have an open library, access to both ICT and science laboratories and as part of our physical education curriculum, we have two gymnasiums as well as a sports area where the children have access to a variety of sporting activities.
To display our children’s talents we have a music room and a two tier auditorium to present their performances, exhibitions, competitions and dramatic performances.
We actively encourage parent-teacher communication to develop and maintain an effective home-school partnership. We have regular communication throughout the academic year with parents and we also have parent-teacher conferences.
