Background

The Gems International School (GIS) was established and founded by Reem Bin Yamin, a Saudi National in May 2005. The school aims to provide an affordable world-class quality education - knowledge, skills, and values to the children of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) based in Jeddah. The GIS offers pre-school, elementary and secondary education and it follows the Philippine curriculum.
