The Swiss International Scientific School is Dubai’s first international school offering a multi-lingual education. Our goal is to inspire future generations to become confident, enthusiastic and adaptable life-long learners, ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges of a globalized world.
The school will offer the full continuum IB programme in three sections:
• Bilingual English / French
• Bilingual English / German
• English with foreign languages
The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai will become an active community, a place to build connections for life, celebrate success and have fun.
Multilingualism is a powerful skill for a child to develop, writes head of the Swiss International Scientifc School in Dubai.
Parents in today’s ultra-competitive world are seeking to identify avenues to support their children’s future prospects, both personally and professionally.
In today’s global economy, the ability to communicate is key, and as more companies expand internationally, the ability to communicate in another language has become a significant advantage in the workforce.
Dubai is home to more than 200 nationalities living and working together harmoniously, therefore in order to have a diverse client base, you need to be able to communicate in as many different languages as possible and understand cultural nuances.
Healthcare is a growing sector with excellent job prospects for the future and hospitals are constantly seeking doctors, nurses and technicians who speak a second language to meet the needs of patients with diverse nationalities.
If you work in customer service, sales or human resources, adding a second language to your repertoire will enable you to communicate with a broad spectrum of clients and candidates.
The construction works for the school now have been underway on site for 13 months with currently a 900 strong labour force working 24 hours a day to deliver the project. The building itself (consisting of a ground plus 2 storeys and 3 storeys for the Administration block) remains on target for completion in preparation of the School opening end of August 2015.
All the external walls are built, the glazing is almost completed and the outside painting works are now well underway. The extended swimming pool design and construction is also in progress as are initial preparations for landscape areas and car park. Internally, the classrooms and corridors are being prepared with ceilings and wall finishes and interior decorations have commenced.
The complete construction team continue to work hard and remain excited about what will undoubtedly be an exceptional facility.
