Horizon International School is a supportive, student focused, international community school. We strive to challenge and inspire all learners to develop their skills and nurture values through a love of learning so that they can responsibly embrace the diverse challenges of tomorrow.

Horizon International School, Dubai is an established, thriving community that follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum of England in Primary and Secondary. Students take a combination of IGCSE and GCSE at the end of Key Stage 4 leading into ‘A’ levels thereafter. The school community has rapidly grown, and we now have approximately 1000 students with ages ranging from 3 to 18 from over 79 different countries.
