Swiss International Scientific School Dubai opens secondary school campusOctober 16, 2017, 7:30 am GMT
The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai has opened its secondary campus for Grades 6-10.
The Dubai school currently accommodates 960 students, and the secondary school follows the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme in preparation for the Diploma Programme.
The secondary school campus features collaborative spaces for shared learning across bigger groups outside of the classroom. Dedicated senior classrooms for smaller groups along with private study areas have been designed and set aside for senior students as well as a separate senior common room.
Students will also have access to science labs for physics, chemistry and biology, along with exhibition rooms.
The campus now has fully operational sports facilities, including an Olympic-size pool, two tennis courts, 400m indoor and outdoor running tracks, a full-sized football and rugby pitch and a Swiss climbing wall.
Once the second phase of the Secondary School is complete in January 2018, there will also be an auditorium, library, robotics lab and other creative amenities including a fabric and textile workshop, and a fully equipped photo and TV studio in support of a particularly inspiring learning environment.
Head of school Beat Sommer commented: "The launch of the new secondary school campus at Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai is an important milestone in the evolution of the school. We are committed to providing a learning environment that is tailored to our students offering the best IB education that will develop critical thinkers and future leaders both here in the UAE and globally."
Luke Osborne, head of secondary school said, "At SISD, we have been working hard as a team to expand the state-of-the-art facilities to enable our students to experience the exceptional IB programme and after-school activities. The Secondary School is an important addition just two years after we launched."
