When deciding on a boarding school, there are plenty of things to consider: the facilities, quality of care and, of course, the country in which the boarding school is situated. We think there is no better place to live and board than Dubai. And we should know, SISD is situated right in the heart of it. But you don’t have to take our word for it, here are 5 reasons why you should choose a boarding school in Dubai.
On average Dubai has about 365 days of sun every year. That means you can retire your umbrella to the back of the cupboard entirely and expect sunshine every single day. Who wouldn’t want that?
85% of Dubai’s residents are expats. That means people from all over the world come together in Dubai, and in our boarding house. So you can open your mind and discover lots of new cultures on a daily basis!
Dubai is a hub for cultural events and festivals. Indeed, Dubai boasts plenty of cultural and educational attractions like art festivals, impressive museums and even EXPO2020. All of which compliment wonderfully the well-rounded education we offer at SISD.
When you make the decision to send your children to boarding school, it can be quite worrisome. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that they will be safe and well looked after in Dubai. In 2020 a study conducted by Numbeo really illustrated how safe the UAE is. They ranked Dubai as the 7th safest city in the world, Abu Dhabi came in first and Sharjah 5th.
Dubai offers our boarding students an array of options for trips over the weekends. So far this year our students have already been on multiple unforgettable weekend trips. Indeed, they have been to the waterpark in Atlantis, IMG Worlds and even Ski Dubai, just to name a few.
