Summary

We are a truly international school with more than 90 different nationalities represented. The most frequent nationality reaches only 9% which make our school unique. We celebrate what makes us similar, but also what makes us different (think International Day and Winter Festival for example). Our aim is to develop world citizens who live together peacefully and in tolerance and respect for other cultures. Even though GWA – Dubai is very strong in areas such as Design, Music and Sport, we are committed to a holistic excellence. We have a balanced program in other fields as well and support our students in their areas of needs challenging and extending their gifts and talents. As a Premium Plus School with world class facilities including a Planetarium, a Green Screen room, an Olympic-size Swimming Pool, one of a kind Design Technology Labs etc., we are proud to provide our students with a Multilingual International Staff of Educators.
