The GEMS Kindergarten Starters school has received approvals to become an all-through K-12 facility beginning from the 2021-22 academic year.

The school will  be renamed GEMS Legacy School to reflect the additional grades it will soon incorporate.

Until now, the school which opened in 1990 and follows a CBSE curriculum, only offered classes until Grade 5.

From April 2021, coinciding with the start of the new academic year, Grade 6 will be introduced with further grades added every year.

The school said in a statement that it will offer additional courses from the upcoming academic year including robotics and AI, extended Indian language choices such as Urdu and Tamil for all students from Grades 1 to 6 and a mental health curriculum for Grades 3-6.

“We will focus on and engage with critically contemporary issues; prioritise humanity and culture in designing systems and environments to improve the human condition; and place collaborative, project-based learning at the centre of our students’ educational experience,” said principal Asha Alexander.

According to the school’s website, it has a total of 4,696 students from KG1 through to Grade 5 currently enrolled. Its staff includes 229 teachers.

In related developments, GEMS Education will close its 14-year-old Wellington Primary School in Dubai at the end of the current academic year in July. All its students, approximately 855 of them, will be shifted to GEMS Wellington Academy – Al Khail.
