Meet the

Dear Parents,

Welcome, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Ahlan Wa sahlan, to

the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai; a school where your child will thrive and excel.

In our unique and ambitious educational experience, our commitment to supporting and nurturing all students to be their very BEST is what we do BEST! Our four underpinning values of Bilingualism, Excellence, Sustainability and Togetherness ensure that in all we do, your children are collaborators, risk-takers, curious, open-minded, linguistically adept, flexible and happy people; equipped to approach learning and life with curiosity, kindness and consideration.

Offering a dynamic education, focused on both academic excellence and personal growth,

SISD students are nurtured to become compassionate lifelong learners and responsible citizens, contributing to society through genuine intercultural understanding and respect. At SISD, a distinctive feature of school life is our diverse student body made up of 100 different nationalities. Our relentless focus on the acquisition of language makes us truly unique; bilingual programmes are offered in either French or German or alternatively, as additional languages in our PYP, MYP, IBDP and IBCP programmes.

Our sincere commitment to a Swiss vision of excellence, in all we do, enables our students to fully embrace the wealth of opportunities available in our world-class facilities. We have enhanced the Early Years and Primary Years Programme to offer STEAM opportunities, a future-focused and integrated approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Our sports, swimming, student leadership, creative and performing arts programmes are of a very high quality. Holistic approaches, where students’ talents and interests are developed, contribute greatly to the personal wellbeing of all our students and to successful school community cohesion.

Our day school, as well as boarding – full and weekly options – provide great flexibility for families and every aspect of school provision is of the highest quality.

As a through-school our students from as young as 3 years through to 18 years of age are supported and challenged. Offering the IB curriculum from pre-KG through to IBDP and IBCP pathways ensures that enquiry, communication and critical thinking skills are all developed from an early age and gradually embedded as lifelong skills in our students.

Our team of international teaching and student support staff is made up of highly qualified professionals who all share the common goal of providing the highest quality of educational experience and care to all our children in an inclusive, nurturing and supportive environment.

On behalf of everyone at SISD, I welcome you to our website and I hope you will visit our state-of-the-art campus in the heart of Dubai!

I look forward to meeting you personally. Please feel free to contact me, should you have any queries about our wonderful and highly unique school.
