Quote from the headmaster
“Dubai is a melting-pot of cultures and home to a diversity of expat families hailing from around the globe. Naturally with that comes a growing demand for schools which reflect and bolster the cultural variety represented in the region. Many families here are also mixed-nationality, so for many parents it is an attractive and valuable feature in an educational programme.”
