Welcome To Ice
ICE was founded in 2013 with a vision for a different kind of education.
Our school is, consubstantially, French, bilingual, international, and firmly positioned in the landscape of international independent schools in the UAE.
- As a French school, we follow the guidelines of the French national curriculum and are accredited by the French Ministry of Education. Accordingly, we belong to the network of French accredited schools abroad (AEFE);
- As a bilingual school, our curriculum includes the teaching of English and teaching in English, which entails a distribution of curriculum content and skills between both languages;
- As an international school, the cultural diversity of our families enriches our community and the everyday learning experiences of our children;
As well, the PYP accreditation of the International Baccalaureate contributes to our school’s international mindedness by combining the rigor and coherence of a French education with a pedagogical approach nurtured by the best student-centered Anglo-Saxon practices focused on kindness, independent thinking, collaboration and creativity.
As a Dubai school, we are anchored in our environment, where Arabic language instruction, and the history and culture of our host country, contribute to shape our students’ lives, whether they are settled in the UAE or only with us for a few years.
