Dubai's King's School is so big and vast, it actually takes up three separate campuses within the city. And the best part? They're all located within nice Dubai neighborhoods. If you live in one of them—Jumeirah, District One, and Arabian Ranches—these are where your kids should be studying. Not only because of the close proximity but also because of the high-quality education they'll receive here. Following the Enighsl National Curriculum with a hint of Islamic education, the institution offers up a melody of different courses that provide different points of view and new ways to see the world at large.
The Dubai International School, on the other hand, follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, both in their primary and secondary education departments. This means what students learn here are also what other students from around the world learn, keeping them in sync in order not to miss out. And it shows too, as a good number of their graduates have gone unto to take up their higher education in Ivy League schools in the US. Furthermore, this school has long helped hone the exemplary skills of its students, be they in academics, arts, or sports. No one gets left behind here because of his/her interests!
Part of the Gems Education Group, the Gems Wellington International School is their crown jewel. It continues to produce excellent students that not only excel in different endeavors, but also go out of their way to help improve society. In fact, the school even takes part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, a world-renowned accolade that's all about challenging one's self to reveal one's true potential. Though no student has yet to win from this school, they have proven they have what it takes to get to the top. Moreover, a huge chunk of their graduates have gone into prestigious universities such as Stanford and Cambridge!
You can probably imply from its beautiful facade what the Repton School in Dubai is all about. Granted it's one of the biggest schools of its kind in the city, as well as following the English National Curriculum through most of the grade levels, the school especially emphasizes extracurricular activities. The students here are encouraged to pursue interests that go beyond standard academics, helping them grow as a whole person instead of one that exclusively relies on intellectual strength. Here, taking up art, music, and sports are just as important as passing the exams and getting high grades.
Just by looking at its sleek and modern campus, you never would have known that the Swiss International Scientific School is actually a boarding school. Though not all students are required to board the school. And besides, the way it operates is pretty far from the standard boarding schools you might be familiar with from the UK and Europe. For one thing, multiculturalism is at the core of the student body, with classes taught in different languages to cater to everyone's needs. Secondly, with a flurry of first-class amenities, extra-curricular activities are encouraged in this school. Here, they believe in the totality of a student, not just his/her brains.
If you ever wondered how Dubai came to be the city it is today, part of that are its amazing schools. The city is home to a good many international schools that prepare young ones not only for the road ahead but helps shape who they are as people too.
If you could afford to enroll your kids in any of these schools, you could probably afford to stay in a beautiful Dubai luxury apartment as your home in the city!
