FEATURED STORY 
GAAQ Becomes the 3rd School in Qatar to Earn the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award

The path to the prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag Award Started with a simple school environmental survey three years ago. Fast forward to today, GAAQ now realizes the impact of those survey results that eventually transformed the school’s ethos and approach to environmental sustainability.

    “What I love about GAAQ is the great leadership, their effective discipline model and the sense of community; the teacher, students and parents are all one big family.  The caring teachers do an outstanding job teaching our kids to the best of their abilities and enhancing a fun-loving environment with marvellous events and activities happening throughout the year.  School sports teams and spirit are growing, giving our students a sense of sportsmanship, teamwork and inner-confidence.”

    “Our son Daeniel has always been shy with meeting new friends and other people.  But since he has joined GAAQ, he has grown into a friendly and confident young boy.  Also, I admire how they nurture young mind and allow every child to progress at their own pace.  I feel comforted that we made a good decision in choosing GEMS American Academy as a good foundation of our son’s education; I am certain that he will blossom in many areas.”
