Reneesh Matthew - Principal

As the Founding Principal of GEMS Modern Academy, I am delighted to welcome you to a place of rigorous learning, energy, enthusiasm, innovation, character & competence. GEMS Modern, Kochi, passes on the traditions of GEMS Modern, Dubai, while creating its own legacy to carry into the future.

We are also fully committed to GEMS core values: leading through innovation, pursuing excellence, growing by learning and global citizenship. These values underpin everything we do and encourages independent learning and empowers students to embrace responsibility. We are very proud of our strong heritage, traditions and values and are looking forward, seeking to constantly innovate and improve.

At GEMS Modern we have created a climate, hospitable to education and have ensured that safety, collaborative atmosphere, and a sense of fruitful interaction prevail in the campus at all times. At GMA the focus is on the overall development along with a vision of academic excellence for all students, one based on very high standards.

It is our intention to ensure that the young people who enter our premises are well prepared for the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world. GEMS Modern leverages unparalleled expertise in delivering renowned international as well as national curricula with a caring, innovative and healthy environment

As a result of continuous study and reflection of various best practices that exist in different parts of the world, we have been able to transform our classrooms into a small research facility for all our students.

We groom each individual whether adult or student into an able leader who could face the world with confidence. Finally, excellent teaching and learning and the very best pastoral care and co-curricular provision lie at the heart of the school and I look forward to welcoming you.
