DUBAI: Dwight School, renowned for its academically rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, with campuses around the globe, will open its first Middle East school in Dubai, in September 2018. Founded in 1872, Dwight is recognised by the IB Organisation as a world leader in international education.

Personalised learning is the hallmark of a Dwight education through which the school is recognised for igniting the spark of genius in every child. A unique Dwight feature is Quest, a learning support programme designed over the past 25 years to bring Dwight’s promise of personalised learning to life for students with specific academic needs to promote their success.

In order to truly prepare students for a future in a highly competitive global market where new jobs will have to be invented, as well as providing another avenue for igniting a spark of genius, Dwight has created Spark Tank a programme. Students can pursue their own passions and learn about the product or business development process — from the germ of an idea to acceleration, and from prototyping to market launch.

Students present their ideas to a committee drawn among talented parents, teachers and industry professionals who provide feedback, advice, mentorships, and help them to reach different levels of accomplishment within the incubator.

Janecke Aarnaes, Head of School at Dwight School Dubai, said: “At Dwight School Dubai, we will create a unique and personalised environment where students can pursue their passions and live their dreams. We will ready our students for a future where they can thrive no matter where in the world they choose to go.”

Dwight School Dubai will be located on an impressive 40,000 square-metre campus in Al Barsha South, Dubai. The world-class campus, designed by Dwight School and their local partners, Bloom Education, will offer state-of-the-art facilities. This includes a 25m pool, training pool, basketball courts, tennis and squash courts, a full soccer pitch, a 400-meter running track, auditorium and a mix of core academic, language, music, performing arts classrooms, specialist labs and innovation centres.
