    “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.”
