Education and Learning
Our Own English High School, Dubai offers an education programme that responds to individual needs and fosters enthusiasm for learning.. While we train our students to be doctors, nurses, lawyers, and artists, we go beyond what it takes to make them mere professionals. We teach our students to be life-long learners.
The students benefit from a pastoral system through which their academic progress and welfare are carefully monitored. Students are encouraged to improve their self-discipline and awareness of others in the classroom, through sport, as well as by way of long field trips and camps. These activities enable students to enhance their school-based learning.
We know that providing what children need to become exceptional adults requires more than just academics. Thus besides consistently attaining high standards of academic achievement, proven by external examination results well above national averages, Our Own English High School, Dubai provides a kaleidoscope of extra-curricular activities, community involvement programmes and school events which support our rich education programmes.
Exploration, innovative problem solving, independent expression and decision making are actively encouraged. A flourishing House system enables senior students to discover their potential to work together for the benefit of the whole community as they assume roles of responsibility. As a result students become informed, confident and active learners with a strong sense of self, whilst being totally prepared for the world ahead. We prepare our students to become contributing members of the work force, with opportunities to enter higher education and to launch successful careers.
