SISD Opens State-of-the-Art Secondary School Campus
Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) opened its Secondary School campus with first-class facilities for Grades 6-10 on September 10th 2017. The new Secondary School follows the successful launch of the Primary School campus in 2015. For the 3rd consecutive year, SISD opened its gates and welcomed more than 960 students from over 60 nationalities. SISD’s Secondary School follows the framework of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) as preparation for the rigours of the Diploma Programme. 
 

Spacious and hi-tech classrooms

The spacious new Secondary School campus features collaborative spaces for shared learning across bigger groups and beyond the classroom. Dedicated senior classrooms for smaller groups along with private study areas have been designed and set aside for senior students as well as a separate senior common room. In addition, students will enjoy hi-tech science labs for physics, chemistry and biology along with exhibition rooms.

Once the second phase of the Secondary School is complete in January 2018, there will also be an auditorium, library, robotics lab and other creative amenities including a fabric and textile workshop, and a fully equipped photo and TV studio in support of a particularly inspiring learning environment.

Once the school is at full capacity, the 72,000 sq. m campus located adjacent to Dubai Creek in Dubai Healthcare City’s new Phase 2, will cater to students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 and will boast 2,200 pupils. The campus is based on sustainability standards as per the Swiss Minergie label, awarded to buildings constructed in line with energy-saving and ecological approaches, and will also include unique water access to Dubai Creek.  
 
Head of School, Beat Sommer, commented on the new secondary school: “The launch of the new secondary school campus at Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai is an important milestone in the evolution of the school. We are committed to providing a learning environment that is tailored to our students offering the best IB education that will develop critical thinkers and future leaders both here in the UAE and globally.”
 
Luke Osborne, Head of Secondary School said, “At SISD, we have been working hard as a team to expand the state-of-the-art facilities to enable our students to experience the exceptional IB programme and after-school activities. The Secondary School is an important addition just two years after we launched.”
