The Ministry of Education (MoE) is set to inaugurate two Zayed Education Complexes in Al Barsha and Al Mizhar areas of Dubai by the next academic year 2020-2021, with a capacity of over 7,700 students, which will serve the new densely populated areas in the emirate of Dubai.
The complexes include modern state-of-the-art educational facilities in line with the modern Emirati school that is aligned with the Ministry of Education’s development strategy.
The Zayed Education Complex in Al Barsha comprises students from the second and third cycles and extends over a building area of 42,663sqm, with a capacity of 3800 students. The complex includes 69 classrooms and 59 laboratories.
The Zayed Complex in Al Mizhar area has been allocated for the second and third cycles and extends over a building area of 40,433 sqm accommodating 3900 students. It includes 68 classrooms and 62 laboratories.
This comes within the framework of a comprehensive plan by the Ministry of Education for establishing educational complexes with world-class specifications. At the beginning of the current academic year, the ministry launched the Zayed Educational Complex in the tourist area of the Emirate of Sharjah to be the first educational complex planned by the ministry in various regions of the country.
Director of Dubai Education Zone Ghaya Sultan Al Muhairi said that the Ministry of Education is moving steadily towards developing government educational facilities at the level of Dubai Education Zone, under the vision of the contemporary Emirati school, and within a comprehensive plan developed by the Department of Educational Facilities at the Ministry of Education, based on three general pillars: new construction, development of school buildings that meet the development standards, regular and operational maintenance, with developed and renewable educational curricula and activities.
The Ministry of Education strives to create an attractive learning environment for students, in addition to fostering the spirit of belonging to the school and strengthening the relationship between the school and the family to support the educational process.
The Ministry of Education said the lists of the top grade 12 students for both the general and advanced streams of all government and private schools adopting the ministry’s curriculum would be announced on July 10.
