We believe our program provides a stimulating, secure, and fun environment for children aged 3-5 years old, where they can grow in confidence and independence, acheving skills which will allow them to become life-long learners.
Primary School (year 1 – year 6)
Primary 1 (Year 1 – Year 2) and Primary 2 (Year 3 – Year 6) are the next steps in your child’s learning. This phase builds on learning from the Early Years. Our aim is that all our students will receive a broad, balanced and enjoyable learning experience that will equip each student with the skills necessary for a successful transition into Secondary School.
Secondary School (year 7 – year 13)
Year 7 to 9 students follow a programme based on the English National Curriculum adapted to our international context. In Years 10 and 11 students undertake the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations and in the final two years (Years 12 and 13), students move into the accredited International Baccalaureate Programme (IB1 and IB2). The School offers both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and IB Career-Related Programme (IBCP).
Extracurricular sports may include athletics, football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, tennis, cricket, netball, gymnastics, swimming etc. Regular training and excellent coaching develops student's skill and teamwork. Our students take great pride in representing DIS and participating in interschools sports competitions against other schools in Dubai and the Gulf region.

We believe in cultivating and nurturing our students’ creative talents by giving them the opportunity to express themselves through music, drama and dance by being involved in the wide range of exciting events, ranging from talent shows to solo performance opportunities such as our lunch-time ‘concert series’ on the outdoor stage. Regular exhibitions proudly displaying our Primary and Secondary school students’ artwork provide them a platform to realize their talent and guidance to follow their passion.
Students are exposed to diverse environments to provide challenging, safe and responsible learning experiences. We have successfully conducted student expeditions and educational tours to locations such as New Zealand, Vietnam, Malawi and many more.
