Our fourth-graders recently presented a series of creative, sophisticated and risk-taking projects to the school community as part of a unit that looked at how we can use light and sound to express ourselves.
GEMS World Academy Chicago is lucky to have an active and engaged Parent Teacher Organization supporting the school’s mission. So far this school year, the PTO has organized an ice-cream social to kick off the year, a Halloween celebration for the school community and the Friday afternoon popcorn sales.
GEMS World Academy Chicago makes it a priority to provide authentic learning experiences for students away from their classrooms. This commitment is part of our "city as campus" approach, which encourages students to use design thinking to create solutions for regional, national and even international challenges.
