Our Own English High School is a girls' school in Dubai. It is the first major school of the chain of schools started by Sunny Varkey, founder of GEMS Education, across the cities of United Arab Emirates. Initially located in Oud Metha, it was moved to Al Warqa'a to a much bigger campus. Earlier both girls and boys attended the school in two different shifts. Now it is a girls-only school from class-5 onwards, and boys were moved to Our Own High School, Al Warqa'a.

Other branches[edit]


Established in 1968, GEMS Our Own English High School, Dubai has over 13,000 students of 22 nationalities, and 2,000 faculty members from 10 countries.
