GEMS World Academy Chicago
Parent: We love GEMS! They use the IB curriculum, which develops well-rounded students. GEMS emphasizes the integration of "academic" skills with problem solving, social justice, art, and more. Additionally, emphasis is placed on inquiry-allowing students to actively guide their learning. GEMS stands out because, where other schools might have reputations as the "rigorous" school, the "inquiry" school, or the "arts" school, GEMS encapsulates all of them! The teachers are responsive to individual families. Virtual portfolio updates keep us informed of what's happening with our child. The administration hard working. They're available to meet with individual families. They've also shown commitments to positive growth with areas of need such as staff diversity and coordination with third-party vendors. The student body is diverse. Being inside a classroom at GEMS is a constant reminder to our son that he lives in a world with people of many different ethnicities, perspectives, religions, etc.
