What the school says

At GEMS Cambridge International School – Nairobi we believe in a well-rounded education that ensures every individual student thrives and discovers their own strengths and abilities, whatever their passion or talents. 

By creating a friendly, open and encouraging learning environment, enriched with extra-curricular opportunities, we help students succeed and reach their full, unique potentials.

Every day we teach our students with strong goals in mind:

  • We work to help our students excel academically

  • We work to build student confidence, initiative and independence

  • We work to give every student the personally tailored support they need to thrive

  • We work to develop strong and constructive relationships with you, the parents and guardians

From the principal

At GEMS Cambridge International School-Nairobi we believe that the leadership, teaching and learning should be outstanding and promote a safe and happy environment where independent learners with a high degree of self-discipline are created and encouraged.

Student excellence in academic achievement, sporting prowess and creative arts will provide the confidence and independence our students will need to springboard to success in first-class universities and tertiary education around the world.

We have a highly experienced and well-qualified team of educators from some of the best schools in Kenya and globally. Our teachers are not only enthusiastic and energized, but are dedicated to supporting academic and personal growth in every individual student they work with. We expect to see the same energy and eagerness to learn and be an active part of the learning process from the students who attend GEMS Cambridge International School-Nairobi.

Parental partnership is a key factor in developing open communication that allow for positive experiences at home and school that form a caring team of adults for children to grown holistically.

I firmly believe that the school and parents not only have the opportunity to make a positive long term impact on each student’s future career, but that we are obligated to guide them to become persons of positive character, with morals, values and generous hearts.
