Founded in 1986, the GEMS Modern Academy is a well established, co-educational school that has developed an excellent reputation for delivering a standard of education that few other private schools in Dubai can rival.

The school teaches children from kindergarten through to grade 12, and follows the curriculum of the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). This prepares students for the ICSE examination in secondary school and the ISC examination at higher secondary level.
