GWA Student Spotlight
The GWA Community Speaks Up
Muhammed Ramees Basheer
Grade 12 Student
"I have broadened my horizons on what it means to be an exemplary student and a good member of society,
deviating from my original view that sleepless nights of cramming textbooks were the only way in which a student could succeed in their education."
Teacher - Grade 3
"What I most enjoy about the IB curriculum is that students are at the center as agents of their own learning journeys and the role of the teacher is to be a responsive facilitator and guide along the way.
Students are encouraged to become curious inquirers, to question and to change their thinking as their theories, knowledge and skills develop"

I think it’s easy to underestimate the difficulty of the Diploma Programme.
For me, it was teachers and administrators like Mrs. Rania Hussein that made the seemingly insurmountable bearable. Beyond that, I think having graduated from GWA I feel as though I truly received a holistic education and I find myself more ready to enter university as a more educated person.
"I've never met such a roster of teachers who didn't feel an ounce of hesitation to sacrifice their afternoons and weekends for their classes, nor teachers who took such care and attention to build genuine relationships with their students.
Not all students around the world are blessed with the mentors I had, so if there's anybody to acknowledge, it's them"
