A New Boarding School Opens Its Doors in Dubai

A new boarding school is finally opening its doors in Dubai this year. Swiss International Scientific School has begun enrollment for its academic year starting September 2017.

Located at Al Jaddaf, it is the second school in the city to provide weekly and full-time boarding options. The facility, currently open to male students only, will take in female students from the next academic year.

The boarding school will cater to weekly boarders as well as full-time boarders, attracting students from other emirates as well as neighbouring countries. Students are taught in English, German and French and the school follows the IB Curriculum.

Students will be provided multi-cuisine meals and reside in state-of-the-art dorms. Boarders are able to experience a cosmopolitan environment and interact with fellow students beyond the classroom.

Dubai has the convenience of being geographically very accessible, providing parents with the option of allowing children to experience world-class boarding without sending them to the more conventional boarding destinations. Dubai also has great weather, great outdoor activities for children and is considered a safe city, especially for young people, which plays a massive part in parents' decision-making.
The head of Swiss International Scientific School Dubai (SISD) Beat Sommer said: "At SISD, we have evaluated carefully the needs of our parents and students. The YouGov survey has confirmed that Dubai is viewed as an ideal location for many living in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan and even here in the UAE with 79 per cent acknowledging Dubai as a good place to send children to boarding school."

The school is currently accepting applications for male students, however female students can apply starting next year.
