Values and Vision

GEMS First Point School – The Villa aims to help students develop personally, as well as academically. Pupils are encouraged to use their imaginations, build self-confidence and become mature, independent adults by the time they leave the establishment. The school understands that the world is constantly evolving. This is why students and teachers are taught to be life-long learners to develop skills which will help them learn new things about the world every day. Students who are kind, innovative and show leadership skills are valued. The school aims to set them up for life in the workplace, which is why team work is highly encouraged. The motto is: ‘learning to strive to develop your potential’. The hope is for students to achieve outstanding qualifications after attending the school. Pupils are taught to be respectful and tolerant of others. They are told to become active members of the international community, as well as the local society. Taking care of the planet and the world is important to the school and pupils are expected to share their knowledge with other people. By doing this the school hopes to improve the standards of the environment on a global scale.
