About Rashid School for Boys
Rashid School for Boys opened in 1986 under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai. We are a small, well funded school located in Nadd Al Shiba on the edge of Dubai and have outstanding facilities and a beautiful campus.The school is dedicated to the highest standards of excellence in the academic and social development of its students. Classes are small so that each student receives close personal attention.
The majority of students are UAE Nationals and most join the school at the age of three or four. Most students leave at the age of seventeen or eighteen and move to universities and colleges in the UAE and around the world.
Most lessons are taught in English and the curriculum is developed from the UK National Curriculum. The school gives great importance to the teaching of Arabic language and Islamic Studies, and follows the Ministry of Education courses in these subjects. Arab history and culture are incorporated into the social studies courses. Grades 10 and 11 lead to United Kingdom General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations (GCSE). In Grades 12 and 13, all students are thoroughly prepared for university and college entry by one of two programmes: UK Advanced Level examinations are studied for entry to all UK universities and the best US universities. The High School Diploma course is specially designed for students going to other universities and colleges. Students take part in a wide range of activities throughout the year. These include camping, sailing, windsurfing, ice-skating, scuba-diving, and field trips to the UK plus many other opportunities.
The school has a well qualified and experienced teaching staff. The majority are UK graduates but we also have teachers from the USA, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Ireland, Jordan and Tunisia. The teachers are well supported by a large group of technicians, teaching support and administration staff. I hope you enjoy our web site and learn a little more about Rashid School and its students.
