The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) is a leading international day and boarding school where future generations are inspired to become confident and enthusiastic life-long learners, ready to embrace the opportunities of a global world.
Our boarders are immersed in an exceptional learning environment which inspires them to become confident, responsible and compassionate towards the needs of others. Our multi-talented staff and extraordinary campus creates an unforgettable experience for our boarders, and one which they will look back on with affection. 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.
There are countless benefits offered to a young person who becomes a boarder at SISD. Boarding provides an excellent transition from home to independence and it helps to build the self-discipline that is beneficial for life at university and the workplace. The nurturing environment offered at SISD encourages our boarders to develop into healthy, mature, emotionally intelligent and responsible young individuals.
At SISD we have created a boarding experience which is contemporary and comfortable, but also one which challenges our boarders to take risks and go beyond their own expectations. A key benefit of the boarding experience is about finding and developing hidden talents, whether it is in sports, linguistics, academic studies or the arts.
Studying in Dubai offers our boarders a unique opportunity to gain a first-class education while enjoying the benefits of a cosmopolitan, progressive and safe city. Dubai’s modern infrastructure, superb global transportation links and numerous leisure opportunities have made the city an attractive option for students from all over the world. We welcome families and young people come join us at SISD where you will create lifelong friendships and an extensive network which will become invaluable throughout your life.
The boarding houses are positioned in a luxurious, state of the art campus which aims to stimulate our boarders’ curiosity and creativity. Filled with natural light, our spacious boarding houses, classrooms, libraries, music, theatre spaces and laboratories are all designed to inspire and engage young minds.
Lifelong friendships are made in the boarding houses, and every effort is made to ensure that the atmosphere encourages boarders to express themselves and pursue their personal interests.
Boarders are accommodated in state-of-the-art single and double rooms (depending on their age) which are modern and generously spaced. Every room has Wi-Fi, air conditioning, integrated en-suite facilities and a private study area. There is also a common room which acts as a social hub to allow the boarders to unwind after a long and active day.
Boarders have access to all of the superb facilities on campus which includes an Olympic pool, 400m outdoor running track, gymnasium, two indoor sports halls, full-sized natural grass football and rugby pitch. These are complemented by many more facilities such as a climbing wall, dance studios, beach tennis and volleyball courts.
Weekly boarders live on campus during the week and return home for the weekend. Full boarders enjoy the exquisite facilities seven days a week and spend their weekends engaged in a variety of stimulating activities on campus and in Dubai.
The boarding staff encourage the boarders to participate in a range of stimulating and challenging activities to help develop new skills and unleash the hidden potential that every child possesses. Dubai offers a range of enthralling activities which include desert safaris, sailing, horse riding, go-karting, golf, paintballing, water parks, theme parks, camping trips and wadi adventures, just to name a few! There are also times for relaxing pursuits, for example, trips to the beach, cinema or visits to cultural sites within the UAE. In addition to the off-campus trips, all boarders have access to the extensive After School Activity (ASA) programme.
There are many things which make SISD an exceptional school. One factor is that SISD is the only school in the region which offers boarding to students who wish to study the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. It is becoming increasingly evident that an IB education is the global gold standard in a context where children see their futures expanding beyond national borders.
For those ready to maintain fluency in French or German alongside their English, our proven immersive approach to bilingual education provides our students with a crucial competitive advantage as far as higher education and beyond are concerned. No matter which stream you choose, you can rest assured that the IB programmes at SISD will challenge you academically and prepare you like no other option for the rigors of higher education.
With a structured and profound emphasis on higher-order thinking skills, IB students arrive at university ready to outperform their peers.
