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 lifelong learners, ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges of a global world.

At SISD we follow the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Pre-Kindergarten (PreKG) to Grade 12 and the Swiss Baccalaureate programme from Grade 6 onwards. The Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai is an IB Continuum World School authorised to offer and teach the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).

Our unique international programme offers students the opportunity to choose between one of our bilingual English-French or English-German streams or follow the International Baccalaureate with STEAM & language acquisition options.

As an IB world school, SISD shares a commitment to high quality, challenging, and international education. We encourage and support all our students to become successful, global minded, enthusiastic lifelong learners who will confidently take advantage of future opportunities and help make a difference. Together with our teaching staff and parents, we support our students to develop to their full potential in a motivating, multilingual and international learning environment.


Our unique international and multilingual environment provides students with authentic exposure to English, French, German and Arabic. Students in the immersive bilingual programmes learn to communicate, think and reflect in two different languages. As global citizens we celebrate diversity, promoting all languages and cultures with equal respect.


We believe in maintaining high standards and aspire to be the best that we can be. We foster a spirit of enquiry, encouraging both creative and critical thinking.


We believe that social, cultural, economic and environmental awareness prepare us to play our part in shaping a better future, both for ourselves and for those around us. Our school campus is eco-friendly, using less energy to create a comfortable and healthy environment.


In our international community, we know that we are at our best when we all work together. We view active participation in the community, from the most local to the most global, as the foundation of a valuable life.

Inspiring Excellence

Our school values are at the heart of everything we do. This B.E.S.T. approach to education recognises the importance of developing lasting human values alongside academic success.
