The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai believes in high standards. Not only do they have high regard for academic success, but they also value confidence, empathy and enthusiasm. They put an emphasis in developing a multilingual school community.
[Healthcare City, June 21, 2016] – As the first international Swiss school established in Dubai, the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai ranks as one of the leading international schools in the country. It is the number one choice for families who recognize the need for the next generation of learners to be flexible, linguistically ambitious, and dynamic.
They offer high-quality education that focuses on both academic excellence and personal growth. They encourage their students to go beyond their capabilities to discover their strengths, unlock unknown talents, and achieve success.
The institution is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme, the Primary Years Programme, and the IB Diploma Programme. Soon, they will start offering the Swiss Baccalaureate from Grade 9 to 12. The aim of their IB Programme is to cultivate caring and knowledgeable young learners.
Developing a Multilingual School Community
Headed by Dr. Christine Jacob, The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai has a strong language department. They assess all the students’ language needs and help their specialized teachers plan their lessons correspondingly.
They have an English with foreign languages strand wherein students study five lessons of either German or French weekly with their specialized foreign languages teachers. For those who speak Italian, these five lessons are taught as a mother tongue language by their Italian teachers.
As of KG2, in all three strands, Arabic is available for both native and non-native speakers. Their after-school activity programme also offers language clubs and courses in Arabic, Italian, German, and French.
They run two bilingual strands: English-German and English-French. Their bilingual programme is suitable for those whose mother tongue is English, German or French. This enriches the competences of the students’ first language rather than compromising it.
English, German, and French are not solely language courses, but these are the languages of instruction in all subjects taught. Not only do the teachers provide additional language skills, but also various cultural experiences.
