Home/Our School

Notre école

Our school is French, bilingual and international and is part of the international school landscape in the United Arab Emirates.

French

through its curriculum, its accreditation by the Ministry of National Education and its partnership with the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE)

Bilingual

thanks to an enriched curriculum of English language and of learning in English, which induces a distribution of the teaching contents and skills between the two languages.

International

first of all, through the diversity of our families, who irrigate our community with all the cultures and traditions from which they come and thus form the basis of the school’s cultural wealth.

International

too, through the PYP accreditation of the International Baccalaureate, which accompanies the rigor and coherence of the French programs with a pedagogical approach nourished by the best Anglo-Saxon practices and where benevolence, autonomy, collaboration and creativity are essential axes.

In Dubaï

it is part of a context where the Arabic language, the history and the culture of our host country enrich the life paths of all our students, whether they are living there or just passing through.

Vision and mission

The school’s mission is to combine the rigor and consistency of a French education, rooted in critical thinking and Enlightenment intellectual values, with the Anglo-Saxon tradition of openness, independent thinking and creativity. The blending of the best of these two educational philosophies is intended to create a culture that promotes academic success, happiness, well-being, personal growth, and the development of each child’s emotional and academic potential.

Becoming Bilingual

Becoming bilingual is the ability to express oneself in French or English, orally and in writing, with native ease and compelling effectiveness. This involves early learning and a real cultural immersion that opens students to the world in an authentic way.

They will have a better understanding of the values, beliefs and customs of other cultures and will be able to navigate between them more easily. They will be future respectful and responsible citizens of the world.
