Ministry of Education

The teaching of Arabic subjects is based on UAE Ministry of Education guidance and materials, with the aim of keeping native Arabic speaking and Muslim children familiar with their national identity and religion. In addition, through these lessons, international students gain an understanding of the UAE’s heritage, which helps enhance mutual understanding, peaceful co-existence and cross-cultural harmony.

The Massachusetts State Curriculum is the most highly regarded study programme in the United States. With close ties to prestigious universities such as Harvard and MIT, it stands above other curricula for its rigorous, comprehensive and forward-thinking design. It’s also considered to be more demanding – and rewarding – than the American Common Core Curriculum.
