Welcome

We are a school that is both traditional and modern. Traditional in the values that we seek to instil in our students: kindness, courtesy and integrity are timeless qualities of character. Our focus on academic rigour and use of educational technology are constantly evolving and innovative. Our school regularly hosts professional development International Baccalaureate workshops for teachers to keep in touch with best practice and developments internationally. In the most recent quality assurance inspection, the Dubai Schools Inspection Board (DSIB) had this to say about our school: “Learning skills were good across the school. Complex presentations at the end of each unit of work showed the well-developed communication skills of students and their ability to learn independently.
