About Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai
About the School
The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) is a leading international day and boarding school where future generations are inspired to become confident and enthusiastic lifelong learners, ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges of a global world.
As an IB world school, SISD shares a commitment to high quality, challenging, and international education. We encourage and support all our students to become successful, global minded, enthusiastic lifelong learners who will confidently take advantage of future opportunities and help make a difference. Together with our teaching staff and parents, we support our students to develop to their full potential in a motivating, multilingual and international learning environment.
Our unique international and multilingual environment provides all students with authentic exposure to English, French, German and Arabic through regular daily contact with native speakers. Students in the immersive bilingual streams learn to communicate, think and reflect in two different languages. We also offer an additional and unique IB STEAM curriculum for students (from PreKG to Grade 5) not in the bilingual stream. As global citizens we celebrate diversity, treating all languages and cultures with equal respect.
We believe in maintaining high standards and aspire to be the best that we can be. We foster a spirit of enquiry, encouraging both creative and critical thinking.
We believe that social, cultural, economic and environmental awareness prepare us to play our part in shaping a better future, both for ourselves and for those around us. Our school campus is eco-friendly, using less energy to create a comfortable and healthy environment.
In our international community, we know that we are at our best when we all work together. We view active participation in the community, from the most local to the most global, as the foundation of a valuable life
Our school values are at the heart of everything we do. This B.E.S.T. approach to education recognises the importance of developing lasting human values alongside academic success.
At SISD we follow the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Pre-Kindergarten (PreKG) to Grade 12 and the Swiss Baccalaureate programme from Grade 6 onwards. The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai is an IB Continuum World School authorised to offer and teach the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).
We are also a member of the Swiss Group of Schools, CIS and ECIS.
SISD offers three different streams with an emphasis on offering learners the chance to develop international-mindedness, to broaden their skills and capabilities and to acquire the information needed to access other cultures:
• IB Bilingual English/French (with Arabic)
• IB Bilingual English/German (with Arabic)
• IB with additional languages (French or German with Arabic) and personalised STEAM* programme.
We look to recruit enthusiastic and committed educators who have an international outlook and a passion for teaching. Successful candidates will have demonstrated that they are motivated and are committed to inspiring students and enriching academic excellence.
