What is the school’s philosophy?
Dubai Scholars is a progressive institution fostering educational excellence. Founded on best practices from East and West, we implement the latest thought-leadership in global pedagogies in concert with appropriate technologies and tools. Tradition and modernity both have a place in our rich and diverse curriculum.
The school nurtures and supports learners during their critical formative years, developing within them a healthy and high level of personal expectations and achievement. Through experiential teaching, the school provides the framework for higher order thinking and critical analysis, allowing students to become authors of their own learning. Interactive teaching methodologies, classroom activities, related articles and worksheets, peer study and the suitable use of technology, enriches the daily experiences for the child in the classroom.
While the school strongly focuses on a high level of academics, the curriculum is holistic in its approach, incorporating various tracks from social awareness to life skills and etiquette. Co-curricular activities from the musical to the athletic are all part of the school programme.
The mission is to provide a collaborative and interactive teaching & learning environment that is conducive for the development of your child. The philosophy focuses on preparing students for the practical demands of today’s evolving global society.

Situated on a 200,000 sq. ft. footprint, Dubai Scholars boasts a multi-purpose facility. Our campus was specifically designed to support the school’s mission across its multiple disciplines. Everything in the school invites engagement, experimentation and exploration all within a safe, secure and nurturing environment.
1998 was a major milestone as Dubai Scholars won the official song contest for the Dubai ATP Tennis Open. Composed, produced and sung by the students, Dubai Scholars finally went global when its production was heard live across three different continents.

The end of year talent show gave all students the opportunity to showcase their talents and was a fun day for both children and faculty.
2011 may however be best remembered for “A Tribute to Michael Jackson”, a two night performance that took all on a journey through the life of this enigmatic star. It was a breath-taking performance that highlighted how special and talented Dubai Scholars’ children are.
