High Performance Learning

At GEMS Cambridge International School Dubai, we are very proud to be part of the High Performance Learning (HPL) network of schools . We believe that all children can be high performance learners and we always strive for our students to reach their full potential. HPL  is based around a framework that looks at, ‘How we think’ (ACPs) and ‘How we behave’ (VAAs) and these are embedded across our curriculum.

The Key Principals of High Performance Learning (HPL)

  • High academic performance is an attainable target for everyone
  • We can systematically teach students how to be ‘intelligent’ and how to succeed in school
  • World-class schools produce students that are both intellectually and socially confident, who are college-ready, workplace-ready and life-ready with a global outlook and a concern for others
  • There are 20 generic characteristics which students need to develop if they are to be high performers in cognitive domains (ACPs) and 10 values, attitudes and attributes (VAAs) that develop the wider learner dispositions needed for cognitive and lifetime success
