Based in the heart of Dubai the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai (SISD) offers the class-leading quality for which Swiss education is known, with an International Baccalaureate Programme that prepares students for universities all over the world. SISD is a leading international 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 the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai we follow the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Pre-KG to Grade 12 and the Swiss Baccalaureate programme from Grade 6 onwards. SISD is an IB Continuum World School authorised to offer and teach the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and IB Diploma Programme (DP). Our unique curriculum offers students the opportunity to choose between three different study streams: English, bilingual English-French or bilingual English-German.
SISD offers full and weekly boarding options to girls and boys ages 11-18. The newly furnished boarding houses have four floors each, with 14 rooms and En-suite bathrooms in each for a total capacity of 100 students per house. Boarders are offered outstanding levels of pastoral care, reflecting our commitment to creating a genuine home away from home. Every boarding house has its own carefully selected staff, who care for the boarder’s welfare and practical needs. The staff live alongside the boarders and they are always on hand to offer support, guidance and advice, along with the support of the school’s fully equipped medical Centre. Boarders follow a structured routine which encourages them to get the most out of their time, homework and tutoring sessions are supervised with help and support given when necessary. Full boarders enjoy a range of enthralling evening and weekend activities in Dubai, that make the most of being located in such a vibrant and dynamic city.
