Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai’s (SISD) state-of-the-art boarding facilities will welcome male students to its campus in September 2017, with registration already open.
Female boarding will follow in 2018, the school said.
SISD will offer local and international boarding students a premier education focused on both academic excellence and personal growth, it said.
Both the standards of its facilities and the approach to pupil care and learning will set it apart from other schools, it claimed.
“The design of the boarding houses, the multi-talented staff and how it has followed the Swiss tradition of providing an exceptional boarding experience are all new to the Middle East, offering parents a greater diversity in terms of their children’s education. The boarding houses have been designed to create a calm environment that helps boarders study, rest and play. At the heart of the design has been the pupils’ experience, creating a genuine home for the students and making them feel part of the SISD community. Pupils will be immersed in an exceptional learning environment, inspiring them to become confident, responsible, and compassionate adolescents,” the school said.
Head of School Beat Sommer said: “Boarding allows children to develop a range of key life skills and prepares them for the future, whether it is for university or later in their careers. They learn skills such as organisation, leadership, self-confidence, self-sufficiency, empathy, responsibility and cultural agility. When our boarders graduate from SISD they will leave with an international network of friends, the highest qualifications to join the best universities around the world and the skills necessary to thrive in an ever changing world.”
SISD will cater for boarders who live in the UAE but also to international students, having weekly and full boarders. The weekly boarding option enables students from Dubai to avoid lengthy commutes. At the same time, the school will provide student visas, allowing parents to ensure a stable school progression despite relocations.
The full campus including the boarding houses, auditorium and secondary school will be ready for September 2017. –TradeArabia News Service
