Riad Nassri, student at GEMS International School – Al Khail, with an IBDP score of 40: “GIS has been my home for six years. It taught me valuable life lessons and allowed me to experience true belonging to a welcoming community that truly cares about me. At GIS, I may have made mistakes but still succeeded in the end. I took pride in helping others and was constantly recognized for my commitments to the school. I was always encouraged to take risks and try new things, which put my resilience and curiosity as a student to good use. Without the constant support and guidance of my mentors and peers, I would not have gotten to where I am today. I was not only able to grow academically, but also personally. With countless opportunities to explore new interests, GIS prepared me to take the next step in my intellectual journey – and for that I will always be grateful.
