A remarkable opportunity for the authentic application of learning.
Our location in the heart of downtown Chicago allows full access to the city and enables students and teachers to extend learning well beyond the walls of their classrooms. GEMS is proud to have built relationships with museums, local businesses, universities, and hospitals, and see students reap the benefits of proximity to public parks, historical monuments, and public art, which they meaningfully explore through our robust Field Studies program.
