Teaching Principles

Unique Educational Approach

All GEMS schools have learning principles based on the four core values of World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership Skills and Forward Thinking.

Dubai American Academy will follow these values and will be at the forefront of learning and ICT education, whilst providing our children with every opportunity to succeed in the future.   

Unique Educational Approach

Our approach is guided by respect for children's individual differences, by recognizing their inherent capacity for growth, and by a commitment to plan activities and environments, which shape learning and provide opportunities for student success. 

We provide a wide range of learning opportunities for our students and encourage them to be active participants in their educational plan.

Technology is not simply taught as a "stand alone" class; rather every effort is made to incorporate technology as an information gathering tool into the specific subject area.

Students have the opportunity to excel as individuals and work as members of a team. In their studies and daily lives, our students are encouraged to explore their interests and strengths and to develop their own distinct, individual personalities.

We challenge our students and inspire them to expand their way of thinking. As our students begin to truly believe in themselves and their abilities, they develop the skills to succeed in school and life.
