Modern is 30

Join our year of celebration.

This year, 2016, GEMS Modern Academy celebrates its 30th birthday! During this special year, our fond memories pull us back in time, our dreams propel us to the future, and as always, reality fixes us in the present, and we rejoice in the moment! As the old saying goes. ‘At 30 the field should be well ploughed, the planting well done, and after that, its summer time!’ Modern has come a long way. From the modest beginning in a rented portacabin in 1986, GEMS Modern Academy has progressed from a school with 5 teachers and 200 students in Karama, to the vibrant and multi-faceted educational establishment in its current sprawling building here in Nad Al Sheba proudly commemorating it’s 30th year with 3741 students, 350 teachers and 300 support staff.
